Acquisition Enhances Communications and Collaboration Offerings of Both Organizations; Expands The Via Group’s Access to Additional Vendors, Professional Services and International Reach
NEW YORK, March 2, 2016 – Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider (www.us.logicalis.com), announced today it has agreed to acquire The Via Group, a Texas-based solution provider specializing in unified communications and voice, from Logicalis’ parent company, Datatec Ltd.
“The Via Group complements Logicalis US capabilities in delivering strong communications and collaboration solutions to important market segments including healthcare and education, areas where Logicalis already has a significant footprint in the United States,” says Vince DeLuca, CEO, Logicalis US. “Both organizations also take a similar consultative approach to sales which will allow us together to help clients maximize their existing investments in communications technologies and deliver managed and professional services that ensure clients are able to maximize their communications and collaboration investments long term.”
“We are very excited to join the Logicalis family," says Kevin Carswell, The Via Group CEO. "Over the past 25 years, The Via Group has delivered world-class communications solutions to customers throughout the US. Logicalis shares our vision for outstanding customer service, and with its international presence and strong portfolio of complementary solutions and services, offers tremendous possibilities for our joint customer base."
The Via Group’s core expertise lies in bridging gaps between traditional telephony and IT to help clients develop, deploy and support a single unified communications and collaboration solution for their organizations whether that solution is on premise, hosted or hybrid. Together with Logicalis’ expertise in mobility, single-number reach, presence, wireless, video, virtual call centers and virtual private networks, the companies will be able to deliver powerful personalized communication and collaboration tools and services to organizations across the country or around the world and to support client solutions from the data center to the mobile workforce. Together, they can also deliver hosted, subscription-based collaboration solutions as a service to clients who want to outsource the responsibility for installing and managing their business communications infrastructure.
The Via Group’s customer base consists of both commercial and enterprise clients in a host of vertical markets ranging from energy, local government and legal to areas like healthcare and education which align with Logicalis US strengths.
