Rochelle Park, N.J. -- The Janis Group Inc. (JGI), a Software and Professional Services firm specializing in Human Resources & Payroll Systems Management and Consulting Services, has acquired Crystal LOGIX, a leading provider of customized Enterprise Reporting and Analysis training, consulting, and support services, based in Dallas, Texas. The acquisition strengthens JGI's position in web reporting for large to mid-size companies, and further emphasizes the company's foundation as an experienced leader in Human Capital Management services. Extending this knowledge and experience-base, JGI additionally announced the hiring of George DiGrandi. DiGrandi comes to JGI from Premier Consulting Group where he served as its Founder and Managing Director. DiGrandi brings with him an extensive knowledge of enterprise applications and consulting services particularly within the Microsoft and PeopleSoft application base.
With the acquisition of Crystal LOGIX, JGI will be bringing Pete Jecker on board. Jecker served as the Co-Founder of Crystal LOGIX and brings with him a rich customer-base. JGI's acquisition of CS Strategies in late-2004 launched JGI into the reporting services space, offering Professional Reporting and Training services for Crystal, ReportSmith and R&R Report Writer customers. The addition of Crystal LOGIX will extend the company's reporting executive team, expertise, geographic presence, and customer-base.
"As we enter our 23rd year of business at JGI, we are poised and steady as experienced leaders in the Professional Services and Consulting space to further our reach and capabilities in the HR and Business Process Consulting and Analytics field," says Mike Janis, Founder & CEO of JGI. "We are continually striving to add to our strong service offerings and resource base, and the additions of Pete Jecker and his Crystal LOGIX organization, along with George DiGrandi and his alliances in the Microsoft and PeopleSoft base, reflect these aspirations.”
The addition of George DiGrandi comes after a long professional and allied relationship with JGI. With years of experience in organizations involved with the implementation, integration and support of enterprise applications and services, like Premier Consulting, the transition of DiGrandi into the JGI family will be seamless and synergistic in business knowledge and philosophy.
