As of January 1, 2019, Cideon America has merged its activities with the LeverX Group in North America. Cideon America’s business, including current and future customers, as well as the core team, will join LeverX Inc. and operate under the LeverX brand. LeverX will now function as Prime Authorized Partner of Cideon Software & Services, Germany, distributing comprehensive software products and services for SAP PLM in the North American market.
The main motivation for joining activities of Cideon America and LeverX is to offer customers various software solutions from a single source. LeverX has deep knowledge of the SAP business and technologies as well as unique expertise in specific industries to implement SAP PLM solutions based on SAP’s ECTR Interfaces. It will expand its portfolio to offer services, software, and maintenance for Cideon’s SAP PLM solutions in the North American market. Thus, customers can be provided holistically with comprehensive SAP PLM based solution.
“In LeverX, we have found a strong partner that is firmly established in the North American market. With bundled forces, a strong team as well as a consistent solution portfolio, we can offer customers a great choice of services from business process consulting, SAP consulting to Cideon’s SAP PLM software products, especially our SAP ECTR Interfaces”, says Reno Staschinski, Managing Board of Cideon.
"We are very excited about this transaction and the opportunity to become the premier partner and reseller of CIDEON products for the North America Region. This acquisition will make LeverX‘s position on the market even stronger, and will dramatically improve our capabilities to deliver greater value to SAP customers in the Region. Having a LeverX office in Devon, Pennsylvania, will help us to better serve our customers located on the East Coast. All this will also create a solid foundation for LeverX growth for the years to come. We welcome the CIDEON America team to LeverX and look forward to the great synergies that the combined team will create in 2019 and beyond,” says Victor Lozinski, President and Co-founder, LeverX, Inc.
