Acquire BPO has recently completed the 100% acquisition of Shore Solutions Inc., one of the fastest-growing BPOs in the Philippines, adding approximately 2000 employees to provide a full suite of outsourcing operations for major corporations located across Asia, Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States.

This is the second acquisition by Acquire in less than 12 months and fortifies their strategic plans to accelerate growth as well as increase market share in the BPO industry.

Scott Stavretis, CEO of Acquire BPO and Shore Solutions, says “The acquisition of Shore offers several exciting opportunities for Acquire in diversifying our current service offering and bolstering our revenue. In particular, Shore is a market leader in the BPO side of the business with strong expertise across Human Resource Outsourcing (HRO), Knowledge Process Outsourcing (KPO), IT and Professional Services, and this really complements Acquire’s outsourcing capabilities. Shore is also a Value Added Reseller of SAP-SuccessFactors HCM cloud technology and we are delighted to add this to our service offerings. Shore’s Contact Center division has grown rapidly over the past three years and services a range of clients across the globe including some very large well-known household brands.”

Acquire and Shore share a commitment to customer satisfaction with Shore’s business excellence approach mirroring Acquire values. The strong employee culture and evolution of Shore to a multifaceted BPO makes them a great fit for Acquire.

The Acquire executive leadership team will also be enhanced with the addition of two new members from the Shore team. Stavretis states “I am extremely pleased that the current executive directors of Shore, Darcy Lalonde and Jonathan Smith, who are both well-respected industry leaders, have committed to the future of Acquire and Shore, leveraging the combined groups’ experience. Additionally, Acquire’s capital can enable them to continue the rapid expansion of Shore’s contact centre and BPO business.”

Darcy Lalonde, Shore CEO, adds “We are extremely excited about this acquisition, which illustrates Shore’s commitment to investing in people, processes and tools to provide our clients with the best quality services. Our client focus and operational excellence remain our clear differentiators. This acquisition signifies growth for Shore and the ability to deliver service with stronger capabilities and improved efficiencies. Our clients can expect a more robust portfolio, a comprehensive strategy with numerous growth opportunities and synergies from efficiency and scale.”

This acquisition will scale the Acquire employee numbers to about 7000 globally. Plans for future acquisition activity, as well as current strong organic growth of both businesses, position Acquire to be a strong disruptor to the competitive landscape in the BPO industry.
