PRESS RELEASE: Evolve IP™, The Cloud Services Company™,today announced that it has acquired Webcore Technologies, a Managed Services Provider (MSP) headquartered in Austin, Texas. The strategic acquisition is part of Evolve IP’s national expansion plans and follows previous acquisitions of companies across the United States.
Webcore Technologies is a MSP that provides on-site and remote IT support to its base of enterprise and mid-size customers. These management capabilities have become increasingly desirable to customers looking to move to the cloud but lack the necessary internal virtualization capabilities. The company also provides cloud computing products including virtual data centers, disaster recovery and security, which compliment Evolve IP’s current portfolio of cloud computing services.
“Our market research showed that managed services are an excellent channel for gaining new cloud services accounts,” says Thomas J. Gravina, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Evolve IP. “With the acquisition of Webcore Technologies we are in front of the needs of the market and have an even greater opportunity to help customers take advantage of our unified cloud platform.”
“While demand for cloud services is higher than ever, the ability for IT departments to handle many of the aspects of cloud deployments has not progressed at the same pace,” says Guy Fardone, Chief Operating Officer and General Manager of Evolve IP. “The highly capable Webcore Technologies team will provide our prospects and clients with options for additional support when moving to Evolve IP’s OneCloud.”
“We’re thrilled to be joining Evolve IP,” says Jordan Bean, President of Webcore Technologies. “Our clients will continue to receive the same exceptional support and service management that Webcore Technologies has always provided, but they are now a part of a rapidly-growing, national cloud services company that pioneers new, innovative products and services. They will immediately gain access to a unified platform of award-winning cloud services including new disaster recovery options and virtualization capabilities along with Evolve IP’s best-of-breed unified communications and call center solutions. We are excited to take our MSP and Helpdesk services nationwide with Evolve IP.”
