4th December 2017 - Smith Cooper is delighted to announce the acquisition of Uniq Systems Ltd, as part of a strategic move to support our continued growth in the London/South region.
Based in Reading (two minutes from the Sage Office in Winnersh) and with more than 21 years experience as a Sage Business Partner, Uniq Systems has earned a fantastic reputation for customer service and quality Sage 200 support. The business provides all the standard Sage 200 products and services and is rightly proud of the fantastic relationships it enjoys with its loyal customers.
Chris Smith, MD of Smith Cooper said “We have all been delighted by our rapid expansion in the London South region and the acquisition of Uniq is a fantastic addition to our operation in that territory. From the first moment we met the Uniq team, we recognised a synergy in the way we all believe a Sage Business Partner should work and how Sage 200 customers should be treated. As is normal in such situations, I am sure there were different options available to Graham and Dawn, so I am naturally thrilled that they chose Smith Cooper as the company best placed to work with them to move their business forwards into a new era, whilst safeguarding the quality of service their clients currently enjoy.”
Graham Bayly, MD & owner of Uniq Systems said “We are immensely proud of our history as a quality Sage 200 support partner and have worked very hard over many years to achieve the reputation we enjoy today. Both Dawn (FD and co-owner) and I value the service we provide to our clients above all else and are very confident that Smith Cooper will not only retain our levels of service but actually improve it with new product and service offerings and their expanded team. We believe this is a fantastic development for our customers, suppliers and staff and look forward to a prosperous new year as part of Smith Cooper”
Whilst Uniq will continue to trade under their own name in the short term, branding will immediately align with Smith Cooper to highlight and emphasise complementary and supporting services across the two businesses.
This announcement comes on the back of Smith Cooper recently being awarded the Midlands Sage Partner of the year for the third year in a row and three further appointments to our service and support teams in both the Midlands and South region.
