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.

RXP is headquartered in Melbourne with locations in Sydney, Canberra and Hobart. The deal adds more than 550 professionals to Capgemini.

RXP is one of a growing throng of traditional ICT consultancies extending their reach into the agency space in recent years. The company acquired The Works in 2017 in a deal worth up to $33 million, part of its bid to expand its digital customer experience delivery capability and its presence in the NSW market. The move also reflected the larger trend to unite brand and creative capability with technology and customer experience design.

“Organisations are operating in a more agile business environment. With the combination of our highly complementary businesses, we are well positioned as a strategic partner to enable our clients’ transformation in digital, data and cloud. We look forward to welcoming the talent and leaders of RXP to Capgemini,” said Capgemini Australia and New Zealand MD, Kaylene O’Brien.

When friction can be a brand’s best friend

I always enjoy those oft-forgotten, in-between moments in any experience. These moments are not necessarily part of any defined experience per se. They likely wouldn’t show up in an organisation’s plans or ideas to help make the customer journey or user flow as simple, easy and seamless as possible.

Sometimes the best solutions are some of the most counterintuitive

Exceptional CMOs do exceptional things for themselves and for those they inspire. At your best you are creative, innovative and inspirational. We have a problem though. We now live in a corporate world that demands sensibility where everything you do is measurable and stakeholders demand predictability – the antithesis of breakthrough and transformation.
