Equation Technologies has acquired the Sage practice of Balgord Software Solutions, a provider of business application software for small to midsized companies and nonprofit organizations with a focus on Sage ERP Accpac, Sage CRM, and Sage Fundraising solutions.

Balgord Software Solutions has 18 years of experience in the industry and has been recognized as one of the top Sage partners in Canada. The firm said it has successfully implemented hundreds of accounting, enterprise resource planning, customer relationship management, and fundraising systems. In addition to augmenting Equation Technologies’ practice with Balgord’s implementation team, the acquisition will provide Balgord clients with access to Equation’s full range of solutions for professional services, human resources, payroll and benefits, and talent management.

Balgord Software Solutions president Annette Balgord will join Equation Technologies as a partner in the firm and will lead the Sage practice. Over the years Balgord Software Solutions has earned the Accpac Partner of the Year award, Sage President's Circle, Accounting Today magazine's "Technology Pacesetter", and the Sage Customer Excellence Award.

"Balgord has a well-deserved reputation for its business application expertise, high level of professional consulting services, and focus on customer support," said Equation Technologies president Pat Wade in a statement. “Existing Equation clients will benefit from deeper Accpac expertise, as well as expanded support. Balgord clients will now have access to a broader array of business services, all managed and coordinated under one roof, providing efficient deployments and complete accountability."

“I’ve gotten to know Pat Wade and her senior management team over the years, and have always been impressed with Equation’s culture and philosophy,” said Balgord president Annette Balgord. “They are highly respected in the industry and their values and focus on strong customer support align perfectly with our own. Joining Equation allows us to provide our clients with more resources plus be a single source for all their business solutions, from human resources management to advanced custom development. Integrating our team into the Equation Technologies’ organization will be seamless given the shared values and complementary capabilities.”
