Representatives from SBS Group and Socius announced this week that the two companies will form a new entity-Velosio. Velosio will be among the largest privately-owned Microsoft partners in North America having 4,000+ clients with more than 300 employees and 150 affiliates. As leaders in the manufacturing, agricultural, distribution, healthcare, and professional services industries, SBS Group and Socius have established a broad portfolio of technology and software solutions for sales, marketing, finance and operations.
Velosio will be led by the executive teams of both organizations and will focus on leveraging its vast experience across the Microsoft Dynamics portfolio including Dynamics 365, Dynamics GP, NAV, and SL. Combined, the entity supports the largest installed base of Dynamics clients in North America. Beyond its portfolio of solutions and clients, Velosio will be the largest Microsoft Master Value Added Reseller (VAR) for Dynamics. The companies will combine their Master VAR programs into a new single offering which brings together the entire Dynamics portfolio, the Office 365 family, and Azure services along with a rich suite of supporting services to assist Microsoft Partners in growing their businesses.
Jim Bowman, Chairman of Velosio said, �The company we are creating is one of a kind. It’s a business platform where we are bringing together the best teams, products and methodologies to fundamentally improve the experience of our clients, employees and partners. For our clients we are simplifying the cloud and delivering value quickly and predictably. For our employees, we are providing a challenging and empowering environment. For our partners, we are accelerating their growth and assisting in their own digital transformation.”
Jeff Geisler, CEO of Velosio added, “Our sole purpose is to help middle market businesses understand and take advantage of the significant shift we’re seeing around technology and business transformation. We now have a single team whose capabilities and experience with cloud technologies including Dynamics 365 are second to none. I’m very excited about what we’re creating at Velosio and the possibilities this provides our clients – and we are just getting started!”
