Vox Telecom has acquired managed technology provider Dynamic IT as part of a growth and diversification strategy, it said on Tuesday.
Dynamic IT was established 13 years ago and has clients nationally.
The full Dynamic IT staff complement has already been integrated into Vox Telecom’s managed services structure and founding members Martin Henene and Barry Kemp have stayed on as members of the team.
“Convergence and cloud [computing] are accelerating the outsourced managed IT market and it is no longer viable to be ‘just’ a telecommunications provider in South Africa,” said Vox Telecom executive commercial head Murray Steyn in a statement. “There is a growing demand for vendors to deliver value-added and valuable services for customers, no matter their size.”
The acquisition was the “next natural step for our business”, Steyn said.
“It takes us closer to delivering an end-to-end solution for our customers, from peripherals to virtual hosted solutions, and everything in between.”
He said the integration of Dynamic IT’s team and service offerings would allow Vox Telecom “to deliver a service not dissimilar to that of a private banker”.
“Customers will benefit not only from needs-based consultations and technology recommendations, but end-to-end implementation and a hardware rental solution, for those organisations that are unable to finance this through capital expenditure.”
The value of the deal was not disclosed. — (c) 2014 NewsCentral Media
