Applexus, a Seattle-based IT consultancy focusing on the SAP enterprise resource planning platform, has announced the opening of its first Canadian location with a new office in Calgary.

The firm’s new delivery center – located at 2100, 144 4th Avenue SW – is part of a plan to create 125 new jobs in Alberta over the next five years.

Applexus – which specializes in advisory, migration, implementation, and management of SAP S/4HANA and B/4HANA solutions – was lured to Calgary by a $1.4-million Investment and Growth Fund (IGF) grant from the Alberta government.

The US consultancy also highlighted Calgary’s university talent pipeline, competitive cost of living, and airport, as well as Alberta’s new immigration program for tech professionals, which aims to quickly build the province’s tech sector.
