Leading NetSuite Solution Provider Partners Explore Consulting (Bellevue, WA) and Bi101 (Livermore, CA) announced today that they will join forces and operate under the Explore Consulting brand starting May 1, 2017. By combining these practices, Explore Consulting will leverage some key NetSuite resources from Bi101 and begin offering a broadened set of service offerings to both of their existing customer bases.
Explore Consulting, known in the Pacific Northwest as a leader in NetSuite sales and services including implementation, customization and support, is growing their practice at a rapid pace, and this addition allows them to expand their NetSuite leadership in both sales and services. Explore has been a 12-time NetSuite Star Performer, won 28 NetSuite awards, has twice been named NetSuite Partner of the Year, Americas, and in 2016 was named the first ever NetSuite SuiteCommerce Partner of the Year for outstanding achievements in NetSuite Ecommerce.
Bi101 was founded in 2004 and specializes in helping software and professional services companies in the Bay Area manage both their finances and their employees with cloud-based software suites for accounting and collaboration. The company has continuously dedicated itself to providing expert implementation and integration services for NetSuite’s ERP, SRP and CRM solutions, and this dedication has contributed to Bi101 being chosen for a 5-Star award, NetSuite’s President Award, and Next Gen 250.
Explore’s 15 year NetSuite tenure has made them one of the most highly decorated Solution Providers worldwide, and the combined team offers our clients more than 270 years of NetSuite ecosystem experience.
“Since Oracle’s acquisition of NetSuite in the fall of 2016, Explore Consulting has experienced an unprecedented increase in demand for our industry-leading NetSuite professional services, and has responded by growing headcount by nearly 20% in the first quarter of 2017” said Steve Jones, CEO & Partner at Explore. “In an effort to expand the pace of growth in Q2, Explore is thrilled to bring on the talented team at Bi101.”
“Our teams stand out in the industry by providing high quality work to all of our clients” said Kevin Lalor, CEO & Founder of Bi101. “The combined companies are now able to offer our clients a deeper set of services, and I am confident our joint emphasis on our company values will make for a successful partnership.”
