Syntax Systems Acquires Beyond Technologies to Further Support SAP

Syntax Systems, a global technology solutions and services provider for cloud application implementation and management, has officially acquired Montreal-based Beyond Technologies, enabling the company to further specialize in SAP solution integration and business performance optimization.

“As a technology business leader, you must continually ask, how can I serve my clients’ best interest now and for what’s to come,” said Luc Dubois, Partner and CEO, of Beyond Technologies. “Becoming part of the Syntax family gives us that path for the future through an expanded geographical reach, consulting practice, and incremental solutions for clients in areas like security, data and IoT. With Syntax as a partner, we have the benefit of keeping our boutique nature but have the support to deliver at scale.”

The deal, which was announced October 3, 2023, brings Beyond, a professional services firm specializing in SAP solution integration and business performance optimization, into the Syntax family.

The combination of Syntax and Beyond creates a team of more than 2,800 experts serving more than 900 mid-market and large enterprise clients globally with 26 offices across the Americas, Europe, Africa, and Asia.

“Bringing the Syntax and Beyond teams together is directly aligned to our strength in delivering industry-first capabilities. We see a big opportunity in creating even more value for clients with our combined expertise in manufacturing, natural resources, construction, retail, consumer industries, life sciences and the public sector,” said Christian Primeau, global CEO of Syntax. “Our deep relationships with SAP, our company cultures, and shared values will enable us to move quickly together as a global team to recognize time to value quickly.” Primeau will continue to lead Syntax as Global CEO.

Syntax and Beyond Technologies brings Joint Value to businesses by offering:

  • Industry-focused solutions: Specialization in the mid-market and large enterprise segments including manufacturing, construction, natural resources, retail, life sciences, consumer industries, and the public sector. This specialization will enable Syntax and Beyond to take on the complexities that these industries face every day.
  • Global practice and local engagement: Together, Syntax and Beyond will have a global footprint that serves clients across 26 locations across the Americas, Europe, Africa, and Asia. Joining forces means clients will benefit from a globalized and flexible set of resources to serve local markets.
  • Business transformation consultancy: The combination capitalizes on existing SAP enterprise application ecosystem expertise. In June 2021, Syntax acquired Illumiti, a Syntax Company, an integration and management consultancy firm. This transaction positioned Syntax as a North American market leader in SAP solutions and professional services. Beyond elevates this commitment and creates an even deeper base of SAP expertise.
  • Complementary values-driven cultures: Prior to the transaction, both organizations put similar emphasis on building business cultures that foster entrepreneurial spirit and customer centricity through corporate values.

Syntax is a portfolio company of Novacap TMT, a Montreal-based private equity firm.
