Capgemini completes RXP Services acquisition

The combined business will strengthen the digital transformation service offerings and bolster its local presence

Technology and professional services business, Capgemini, has completed the acquisition of RXP Services, a move that expands its operations in Australia and strengthens its ability to provide end-to-end digital solutions to clients across the region at scale.

The acquisition also reinforces Capgemini's strategic partnerships with Microsoft, ServiceNow and Salesforce.

“RXP’s extensive expertise and knowledge further deepen our networks and capabilities to meet the anticipated growth in demand for digital services and we are delighted to welcome them to the Capgemini team,” said Capgemini CEO, Olaf Pietschner.

In addition, RXP’s creative agency, The Works, will open a new chapter for Capgemini in Australia, complementing the capabilities of Capgemini Invent to enable the design and delivery of end to end amazing and differentiated digital experiences for clients.
