Sparkrock’s solutions focus on K-12 educational institutions, non-profit, and human service organizations and are built on Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. Their Sparkrock 365 application includes industry-specific capabilities in areas including finance, workforce management, payroll, and employee scheduling.

Sparkrock serve clients in Canada and the US. They launched Sparkrock 365 in 2019.

Andy Tryba, founder and CEO of Iconic Partners, will take over as Sparkrock’s CEO, succeeding Colin Dickinson. Dickinson and Sparkrock co-founders FJames Faw and Nicola Dickinson have joined Sparkrock’s advisory board.

Ionic Partners invests in B2B software and data firms with the goal of helping them scale to new stages of growth, according to their web site. They acquired custom software platform Gigster in 2021.

We can't wait to build on that foundation by investing in innovation, accelerating time-to-value for our customers, and most importantly, delivering world-class service and outcomes to our customers. This will start by deepening our partnership with Microsoft, which features the incredible security and stability of Dynamics 365. We believe Sparkrock is the perfect example of a company that does well by doing good, and we're excited to accelerate this important work."
