BusinessWire: Latin America’s IT services company Softtek has bought Mexico-based SCAi, a provider of SAP-based industry solutions, and VTEC Group Inc., its U.S. subsidiary.

Financial details of the deal have not been disclosed.

The acquisition strengthens Softtek’s SAP portfolio, enabling it to broaden its offerings to numerous industries including automotive, pharma, personal care and chemical and metal.

SCAi holds five SAP certified solutions and they are useful for automotive and pharma industries.

The deal will advance Softtek’s capabilities to bring on-premise and cloud-based solutions to manufacturing industries, said the Monterrey, Mexico-based technology firm.

More than anything else, the acquisition adds Softtek with significant intellectual property and expertise for accelerated solutions.

“Our clients demand high ROI solutions with a combination of process expertise, a thorough understanding of industry regulatory compliance, and knowledge of SAP technology, the preferred technology platform for these industries,” the company stated in a press release.

“SCAi brings an extraordinary set of features to provide the perfect complement to our global SAP practice,” said Blanca Treviño, president & CEO of Softtek.

SCAi, headquartered in Mexico, has been in the business for the past twenty years, providing business technology solutions. As a SAP partner for 13 plus years, the company claims to have completed more than 100 successful projects in Mexico, the U.S. and Europe.

Oscar Valdes, founder and CEO of SCAi said, “Softtek’s service model and global footprint, including its Nearshore portfolio of services, represent a very compelling proposition.”
