Communicate Better buys ConvergeOne
Communicate Better has continued its 2013 acquisition spree with the purchase of Salford-based ConvergeOne.
The IT and cloud specialist becomes the third company to be bought the company this year after TTS Communications and SCT Systems. Although ConvergeOne will form part of the Communicate Better group, it will continue to operate under its original name with its own staff. The acquisition adds customers in the legal sector and related contracts to the group, and brings the number of employees up to 60.
CEO of Communicate Better Wayne Cartwright said: ‘We are very pleased to have been able to complete the acquisition of ConvergeOne, which will help us achieve a turnover of around £8 million this financial year, a target we set for ourselves at the beginning of the year. I am really excited about the opportunity the purchase provides for us to improve our cloud offering. I believe it has accelerated our development by around two years and also offers a significant opportunity for cross sales.
‘We have no plans for further acquisitions in the remainder of the year and shall spend our time consolidating the business and ensuring continued customer service for all of our customers. However, needless to say, we are now looking for larger premises within the region to accommodate our growing team.’
