Searce acquires Consularis!

posted Nov 8, 2013, 8:01 PM by Dinesh Varma   [ updated Nov 10, 2013, 1:39 AM ]

The purpose of this post is to brief all our customers and prospects on an important announcement for Consularis. On 1st of November 2013 the Board of Directors of Consularis entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by Searce Group. Read the official press release.


Searce is a technology company with a history of co-creating startups and providing software product development, business process improvement, cloud enablement and product engineering services to its global customers. Searce has presence in the USA and India and is on a high-growth trajectory. Searce is featured in the 2013 Inc. 5000 list as one of the fastest growing company.


We are thrilled to be a part of the rapidly growing Searce family. Searce helps us in strengthening our technical and financial capabilities, besides centralizing our marketing and support functions. Most importantly, it was a great DNA fit right from the day we met with Searce's management team.


Perhaps you are wondering how this change affects you — our valued customer. Nothing changes for our customers, neither the team nor our commitment to bring them the best cloud and technology solutions. If anything, this just strengthens our resolve to offer cutting-edge technology solutions to our customers.


There will be no immediate effects on the business transaction, service delivery and operations. In fact this change would mean more solution offerings, stronger financial strength, bigger geographic spread and reach, even better customer support and technology consulting services and more. In the coming weeks, however, you would receive more information on the changes you might have to do on the business transaction documents like Purchase Orders, Bank Cheques and changes in tax compliance matters.


There would be no changes in the team and Dinesh Varma will continue to head this region. The team in Mumbai and the rest of India would be strengthened through addition of more solution architects, consultants and engineers.


I strongly believe that with this change we would be able to bring in more technology solutions to your table and help in transforming your businesses and aid in your business growth.


Best Regards,


Dinesh Varma
