DSCI’s UCx unified communications offering and ITx managed IT services are expected to drive accelerating sales for the managed services that comprise more than half of TelePacific’s business. When joined with TelePacific’s SD-WAN technology that can deliver those services anywhere that there’s a broadband connection, this combination “sets the bar for success in the integrated MSP space," TelePacific said.
The two companies are privately held and terms of the agreement were not released.
“This is a transformational acquisition that opens up literally unbounded opportunities for both of us now that we’re a single company," says Dick Jalkut, TelePacific’s president and CEO. “Over the past months as we’ve worked to integrate our offerings, people and resources together preparing for this day, it’s become ever more clear to us that this was a compelling match of values and visions, as much as it was of complementary technologies. Adding UCx and ITx to TelePacific opens up the entire country for us — and DSCI fits as if it was custom-designed to propel our growth together."
DSCI will operate under its own name as a TelePacific company and will remain under the leadership of its senior management team with headquarters in Waltham, Massachusetts.
“Everything that we’ve been working toward for the past 15 years – all the work we’ve done to create the leading unified communications solution and next-generation service responsiveness that set us apart from our competitors in the Northeast – is now ready for prime time on a national stage," said Sean Dandley, DSCI’s president. “Our customers and TelePacific’s have been looking for a teammate to help them grow in a world where borders are increasingly irrelevant and we’re going to deliver for them."
TelePacific delivers managed services and business communications to 75,000 locations nationally for customers ranging from small businesses to enterprises with hundreds of sites.
