The deal expands Vanguard Software’s Asia-Pacific presence and bolsters New Zealand-based Endeavour’s technology arsenal with the best-in-market business forecasting and planning platform.
With offices in New Zealand, Australia and the U.K., Endeavour will integrate and support Vanguard Software across Australasia and Western Europe, where the company implements leading enterprise systems including Microsoft Dynamics and Sage ERP.
Neal Goffman, VP of Sales & Marketing for Vanguard Software, said Endeavour’s strengths in manufacturing, construction, and infrastructure sectors align with Vanguard’s own industry experience.
“We understand each other’s customer bases,” said Goffman. That’s going to help us deliver core value to an economically expanding part of the world through a partner that can truly ad value. It’s a fantastic opportunity to meet a market that is demanding increasingly sophisticated solutions.”
Vanguard Software develops and sells an integrated platform of applications for sales forecasting, demand planning, inventory optimization, budgeting and forecasting, sales and operations planning (S&OP), and integrated business planning (IBP) with full financial integration.
“Vanguard has the advanced-analytic depth and breadth to meet all of the needs of our existing and emerging customer bases,” said Tim Ryley, Chief Executive of Endeavour Solutions. “Beyond that, we expect their business planning and forecasting platform to amplify our customers’ returns, especially on large-scale ERP investments.”
