Sapient Government Services, part of Sapient, has announced its acquisition of OnPoint Consulting, Inc. (OnPoint). The addition of OnPoint strengthens Sapient’s footprint in the government space and further extends Sapient Government Services’ unique ability to drive innovation that helps governments, nonprofits and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) keep pace in a rapidly changing environment, the company said.
“The environment in which the federal government must evolve is transforming very rapidly. Public service institutions must learn to operate in an increasingly-connected world,” said Teresa Bozzelli, head of SGS. “Sapient Government Services has a long history of helping our clients navigate complex and shifting environments. Together we are a powerful group of talented people dedicated to revolutionizing how public institutions realize their greatest impact, carry out their missions and create positive social change.”
Founded by its President Shankar Pillai in 1994 with its headquarters in Arlington, OnPoint is a technology consulting firm that helps its federal customers get ahead of IT by providing critical thinking, strategic analysis and thought leadership to improve performance, lower costs and achieve results. The company has approximately 150 full-time employees.
“We are thrilled to join the Sapient family. Our culture and values align around a mutual ambition to have a positive impact on the nation and its people,” said Mike Agrillo, executive vice president of OnPoint. “By integrating our diverse capabilities and assets, we are better able to help organizations have maximum impact in improving the role of the federal government and the resulting experience of the workers that carry out strategic missions central to the advancement of the nations, communities and citizens they serve.”
OnPoint brings to Sapient Government Services, based in Arlington, Va., strong and complementary capabilities that include infrastructure, cybersecurity, workforce productivity, micro-application development and managed security operations.
“As technology rapidly reshapes the human experience, both at home and at work, governments, nonprofits and NGOs are looking for partners to help drive the innovation necessary to respond to these shifting requirements,” said Alan J. Herrick, president and CEO of Sapient. “Adding OnPoint’s complementary client base and capabilities in key emerging areas strengthens our government business, and allows us to continue doing work that has significant impact and contribution to our nation and our world.”
