Press release: A new era begins at the IIS Group
10th September, Dublin, Ireland
The IIS Group today embarks on a new and exciting era after a corporate rebrand. To reflect the company’s positioning as a leading SAP Business One partner across Europe and an award-winning services provider the IIS Group is evolving into Milner Browne.
Milner Browne accurately reflects the company’s origins, culture and future opportunities. The new approach represents the organisation’s personal and friendly approach to business, where customers always come first.
Morgan Browne, Chief Executive of Milner Browne, explained how the rebranding came from a company culture he has promoted since taking over the business in 2008.
“We believe that family values are at the core of our culture. Milner and Browne are my family names. What better way to reflect this than using these two names together? The new name puts people first. It says we are confident to put our name to what we do. It resonates with our staff and customers and tells people that we are proud of what we do, the services that we offer and ultimately we believe in our purpose.
“Milner Browne echoes our pride in our people and the value they offer to business across Europe. The innovation we are now noted for is born out of our talent and our success is derived from the commitment to delivering pioneering solutions that allow small businesses to compete with larger firms.
“I know that we do things a little different from other SAP Business One partners. The rebranding reflects that. Milner Browne is a name that will become synonymous with innovation. We’ve got very ambitious plans and we believe we’ve got the software to help us get there.”
The company’s rebranding marks another milestone in its short, but eventful history. The Dublin-based company, which has offices across Europe in the UK, the Netherlands and Poland, was appointed an SAP Business One partner in 2003 — the same year it implemented the first Business One solution in the UK & Ireland.
Three years later, the newly-named Milner Browne was selected as SAP’s number one partner in the EMEA region and achieved Gold Partner status in the UK & Ireland.
When Morgan Browne acquired the company it employed 12 people. Now, eight years later, Milner Browne is recognised as one of Europe’s leading SAP Business One partners and a global specialist in implementing SAP HANA.
This year saw the company’s headcount exceed 100 for the first time and it was selected as a Deloitte Best Managed Company for the first time in Ireland.
Morgan Browne, an EY Entrepreneur of Year Finalist 2015, unveiled the company’s rebranding plans at The Innovation Summit at Croke Park on 9 September, where more than 300 delegates attended from across Europe.
Milner Browne will now become part of the IIS Group — which incorporates the B1 Apps range and the Surfer Suite of products.
