Fujifilm has acquired MicroChannel, an Australian IT services company and its affiliates to expand its offerings in sales and implementation support of ERP systems.

From March 1, MicroChannel will change its name to Fujifilm MicroChannel Services, with Brett Matthews, current managing director of Fujifilm Data Management Solutions, serving as the new CEO of the acquired companies. 

Founded in 1995, MicroChannel is an award-winning technology provider with customers across Australia, New Zealand, and Asia, with offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Auckland, and Singapore. 

The company is regarded by global technology leaders such as Microsoft, SAP and Sage as one of the region’s top ERP and IT solutions providers. It specializes in small to mid-sized businesses and corporate divisions.

“This is an exciting step on our path to growing our ERP systems and services as one of our core business offerings,” said Naoki Hama, president and CEO of Fujifilm Business Innovation. “MicroChannel has an outstanding team of committed and knowledgeable professionals. Their expertise aligns perfectly with our long-term ambition of providing customers with as much value as possible through a combination of solutions and services.  

“We look forward to working with MicroChannel’s team and well-established customer base to leverage our combined expertise for all customers across the region and to further enhance digital transformations alongside our existing operations.”   

“This acquisition marks a historic and exciting milestone for MicroChannel,” said Harach Lucas, founder and managing director of MicroChannel, who will serve as a senior executive advisor for Fujifilm MicroChannel Services. 

“We are very excited to become part of a highly respected global organization with a similar customer-centric culture and a rich history of providing innovative products and solutions.” 

Fujifilm Business Innovation began marketing and supporting the implementation of ERP systems by creating its subsidiary, Fujifilm Digital Solutions, in Tokyo, Japan, in January 2022. According to the company, acquiring MicroChannel is an important step for Fujifilm Business Innovation’s full-scale global expansion in this space.
