    MONTREAL, Oct. 23 /CNW Telbec/ - Fujitsu Consulting, the North America
consulting and services arm of Fujitsu Limited, today announced the
acquisition of Promaintech Novaxa, a consulting engineering firm specializing
in operational strategy, business process transformation and performance
optimization. This acquisition is aligned to Fujitsu Consulting's long-term
strategy to increase its presence in emerging markets and industry sectors.

value and pursue excellence to ensure their continued success. As an
information technology and business process management leader, Fujitsu
Consulting is augmenting its service offering by acquiring Promaintech
Novaxa's expertise in business process optimization in the industrial and
service sectors," explained André Pouliot, Fujitsu Consulting's executive vice
president and Quebec general manager.
    With a staff of over 50 professionals, Promaintech Novaxa has built a
reputation in the marketplace for assisting organizations in optimizing their
business processes, implementing best practices and developing continuous
improvement programs that increase operational performance. This firm, which
has been in operation for 10 years now, is positioned as a leader because it
has developed operating strategies founded on the latest tools and best
practices. Promaintech Novaxa was certified by the National Research Council

improvement solutions. The senior management team of Promaintech Novaxa will
remain with Fujitsu Consulting, providing continued leadership in business
development and managing the progressive growth of the new unit.
