Announcing our £9.3m Buy Out Fund II investment into Resulting IT

Total Invested: £9.3 Million 

Investment From: Buyout Fund II

Fuelling growth and innovation in the SAP market. 

The SAP market has experienced rapid growth in recent years with over 230 million cloud users to date. This growth has been expedited by the pandemic, as companies adapted to the challenges of remote work and sought to enhance automation and system integration to minimize vulnerabilities 

Resulting IT distinguished itself in the marketplace as a business-side SAP consultancy, offering clients valuable advisory services. Their expertise lies in helping organisations define strategies, develop delivery roadmaps, and select the most suitable solutions. Moreover, they offer invaluable project management assistance. Their team of program managers is highly experienced and proficient in managing complex and large projects. 

For these reasons among many others, we are thrilled to announce our strategic investment of £9.3 million in Resulting IT. This investment aims to empower this leading tech consultancy. It will help them expand their presence in the UK market and pursue further growth opportunities. Additionally, it will enable them to make inroads into new sectors. 

Resulting IT’s customer centric approach sets them apart from its competitors. This unique positioning has attracted a prestigious roster of clients, including the NHS and Transport for London.

Visionary Leadership and Proven Track Record

Resulting IT’s success is underpinned by strong leadership from four experienced directors with a track record in delivering exceptional client results. The company’s leadership team possess deep domain expertise, they know how to run large teams, and have a clear understanding of the challenges faced by organisations in their IT transformations.

This expertise, combined with their passion for excellence, means Resulting IT consistently drive value and deliver tangible outcomes for their clients, which delivered some of the highest client Net Promoter Scores  we have seen in commercial due diligence.

In a market where 60% is seen as good, Resulting’s NPS ranked over 90%, which is unheard of in such a challenging sector.

Differentiated Approach to IT Consulting

Resulting IT sets itself apart through its fiercely independent approach. The company goes beyond the traditional model adopted by the global system integrators and consultancies – its people are collaborative and are not aligned to any technology or vendor. This means the client receives impartial advice and the benefits extend well beyond the implementation period.

YFM recognised the immense value of Resulting IT’s approach in fostering long-term partnerships which has attracted a prestigious roster of clients, including the NHS, Transport for London, Sage, Pets At Home, and ASDA.

Market Opportunity and Growth Potential

The IT consulting industry is experiencing rapid growth, driven by the increasing complexity of technology landscapes, the need for organisations to maximize the value of their IT investments, and increased remote working. In a turbulent economy, ERP systems are central to ensuring a large enterprise runs effectively and achieves the efficiencies required to compete in a leaner market.

There are particularly strong market drivers from the SAP ecosystem to shift clients from legacy on-prem to their flagship S/4 HANA by 2030.  Although the scale of the SAP market is huge, Resulting’s vendor agnostic model has already led to inroads in Oracle, Workday, MS Dynamics and non-ERP technologies.

Our partnership with Resulting IT marks a significant milestone in the technology industry. The investment also underscores our commitment to providing innovative solutions that address the needs of the growing technology sector.  

With the new funding, Resulting IT will be able to further develop their cutting-edge services and expand their reach to new markets. Our expertise combined with Resulting IT’s innovative solutions will give them the capability to build a powerful platform of products and services. This platform will revolutionize the technology industry.  

It not only provides Resulting IT with the financial resources to expand and innovate but also highlights the growing importance of ERP expertise in an evolving business landscape. Resulting IT is a leader in independent SAP consulting and is capitalising on growth opportunities. This ability to drive digital transformation and provide exceptional customer service will shape the future of the industry.
