ATLANTA — EVO Payments, Inc. (NASDAQ:EVOP) (“EVO” or “the Company”), a leading global provider of payment technology integrations and acquiring solutions, today announced it has acquired North49 Business Solutions, Inc. (“North49”), a certified Sage Development Partner, to provide enhanced B2B integrated payment solutions for Sage customers.

As both a Sage Authorized Partner and Sage Development Partner, North49 provides accounts receivables solutions and business automation tools to allow customers to streamline their payment workflow via certified integrations to the Sage 300 and Sage Intacct solutions. Further, North49’s customer portal is an endorsed solution for Sage 300 and Sage Intacct, with Sage directly distributing the Sage 300 product.

“We are very excited about the acquisition of North49, which will enable us to offer our leading gateway and acquiring services to Sage users and offer a bundled B2B payments solution to customers new to both Sage and EVO”, stated Brendan F. Tansill, EVO’s President, the Americas. “North49’s leading Sage integration enhances our existing B2B payment offering, which also includes native API integrations to the Microsoft, Acumatica, Oracle, and SAP systems.”

"I am delighted to see our vision for North49 continue under EVO’s ownership,” said Rob Eichhorn, CEO and Co-Founder of North49. “EVO is committed to further expanding our relationship with Sage and developing our leading suite of Sage-integrated eCommerce solutions. We look forward to working with our new colleagues at EVO and to expanding the distribution of our proprietary technology across our collective partner network.”

Said Etienne Grobler, North49’s President and Co-Founder, “EVO and North49 share a common appreciation for the critical role ERP providers play in supporting B2B merchants.
