Perficient Acquires Clarity Consulting

We’re thrilled to share that Perficient continues to expand its cloud expertise with the acquisition of Clarity Consulting, a Chicago-based, $27 million annual revenue consultancy with deep expertise in custom development, cloud implementations, and digital experience design on Microsoft platforms and devices.
Perficient was recently honored as Microsoft’s 2017 Messaging Partner of the Year. The award, which will be presented at Microsoft Inspire 2017, honors Perficient for proven cloud expertise in the planning, deployment, and management of Microsoft Exchange, while helping customers lower IT costs, boost user productivity, and better manage risk with anywhere access to communications. This acquisition continues to expand Perficient’s Microsoft cloud expertise and adds Clarity Connect – a contact center solution native to Skype for Business that helps users manage communications with customers, between employees, and with business partners.
“We are excited to further strengthen Perficient with the strategic acquisition of Clarity,” said Jeffrey Davis, Perficient’s chairman and chief executive officer. “Microsoft’s cloud momentum is accelerating, and Clarity’s outstanding capabilities, impressive client roster, and strong reputation expand and enhance our formidable market presence and broaden and deepen our long-standing partnership with Microsoft.”
The acquisition of Clarity:

  • Builds Perficient’s Microsoft offerings and qualifications with additional software development and digital design capabilities as well as intellectual property assets;
  • Increases Perficient’s presence in the North Central region and in the enterprise-rich Chicago market;
  • Adds approximately 160 consulting, technology, sales, and general and administrative professionals; and
  • Brings strategic client relationships with Fortune 1000 customers across several industries.

Clarity founders Jeff Smith and Jon Rauschenberger and partner Jerry Brunning all join Perficient in key leadership roles.

“Perficient is well known for its expertise across many technology platforms and is widely-regarded as one of the largest and most capable Microsoft systems integrator partners in the country,” said Smith. “Joining the Perficient team accelerates our collective opportunities for continued growth and success.”
