It delivers managed IT services ranging from the remote monitoring of networks and servers, managed desktop, antivirus, cloud backup, and printers, to full outsourcing. It is focused on small and mid-market enterprises.
“This acquisition enables us to extend our footprint across South Africa, further serve our corporate customers and upsell new services to existing customers from both companies,” said Logicalis Group CEO Mark Rogers. “We also gain considerable knowledge of the industry from the Mars executive team…”
Logicalis Group has annualised revenues of US$1.7-billion from operations in Europe, North America, Latin America, Asia Pacific and Africa. The value of the Mars Technologies acquisition has not been disclosed. — (c) 2019 NewsCentral Media
