Net at Work expands in Latin America and the Caribbean with acquisition

Business and tech consultancy Net at Work, an Accounting Today VAR 100 firm, has acquired Southeast Computer Solutions, a consulting firm and Sage partner based in Miami.

Net at Work has been acquiring strategically over time to increase its footprint in the United States, last year adding Michigan-based Management Advisory Services and Florida-based Inventory Management Solutions, both Sage partners. This acquisition will give Net at Work a presence in Latin American and the Caribbean, a significant geographic move for the company.

Southeast has staff who are bilingual and has experience across the Latin American and Caribbean region that will prove valuable to Net at Work in its effort to expand geographically. Southeast also offers localized versions of the Sage X3 solution that simplify and assure adherence with a wide range of country-specific tax and compliance regulations.

Southeast Computer Solutions specializes in Sage and Acumatica solutions, and provides small and mid-market companies with ERP solutions including Sage X3, Sage 100, Acumatica and extended business technology solutions. The acquisition is aimed at broadening Net at Work’s bench of experienced business technology consultants, providing clients with a deeper level of Sage and Acumatica expertise, and expanding its reach into Latin America and the Caribbean. Southeast’s clients will gain access to Net at Work’s domain expertise, virtual chief information officer support, and a services and solutions portfolio that includes cloud hosting, managed IT and information security, e-commerce, and integrated credit card and payments processing.

The entire Southeast staff will join Net at Work and remain in Miami and Mexico City. Sonia Ferrera, formerly Southeast’s president and CEO, will head up business development for the Southeast region, Latin America and the Caribbean.

“We first broached this idea several years ago, long admiring Southeast as one of the crown jewels in this industry, which is why today’s announcement is particularly exciting for us,” said Alex Solomon, Net at Work’s co-founder, in a statement. “As a Net at Work Alliance Partner, we came to see how their customer-focused approach and culture perfectly aligned with ours. We look forward to working with our long-time friends and colleagues Sonia Ferrera and Ralph Ceccarelli, and their highly skilled team, in providing their clients with ‘next level’ support and delivering new levels of efficiency, performance and success.”

“Through multiple years of working closely together, we gained a deep appreciation of Net at Work’s commitment to excellence, and absolute focus on providing exceptional customer service, which are consistent with our long-standing approach and values,” added Ferrera. “We are thrilled to be joining Alex, Eddie and the Net at Work team. Our clients will quickly see why they were our first and only choice to partner with: They are the best in the business and the very best at unleashing their clients’ full business potential.”
