The company has gone through a period of sustained growth, and is the lead deployer of HANA based SAP technology.
The company will now join the EY UK and Ireland SAP practice and operate under the name EY AgilityWorks.
Stuart Orr, advisory managing partner at EY UK and Ireland, said: “The acquisition of AgilityWorks will expand our capabilities and accelerate the growth of our technology consulting services.
“Our newly formed ‘EY AgilityWorks’ team will also help us to support clients adopt and utilise the new SAP platform – S/4 HANA – to transform their businesses.”
He added: “The acquisition will enable us to provide our clients with a modern SAP service model and meet the growing demand for advice we are seeing in this area.”
Alan Hunt will lead the new team which forms part of the EY UK and Ireland Advisory. He was previously managing director of AgilityWorks.
Hunt said: “We will be bringing together AgilityWorks’ SAP technology expertise with EY’s business transformation capabilities and industry knowledge.
“Working together will allow us to deliver rapid outcomes for our clients, working in an agile and collaborative way. Our approach will remove complexity and provide clients with a flexible digital platform upon which to develop and innovate further.”
