The amount of the deal was not disclosed.
The acquisition expands the firm’s capabilities from an Infor-only consulting organization to a cross-platform technology advisory and management consulting firm for organizations in healthcare, retail, higher education, non-profit, government, manufacturing, and other commercial industries.
Led by Dhiraj Shah, president and CEO, Avaap is now positioned to serve a broader sector of the market and cater to businesses across all industries seeking to leverage enterprise technology to drive business transformation.
