Visual Edge Technology has announced three new acquisitions, including another core managed IT services provider into its Netwise Resources brand in the Midwest, N2N Technologies of Indianapolis.
The agreement, which will transition operations of N2N’s two locations, including 18 employees, over to Netwise Resources, is the second acquisition of a core IT provider this year. Earlier this year, Zymphony Technology Solutions of Florida was acquired by Visual Edge.
N2N has been a full-service IT provider of information and business technology solutions since 2008. N2N is known for its private cloud hosting platform that will now provide Visual Edge clients with a private cloud hosting option.
“N2N has had considerable growth in the past five years, and we’ve been approached by many companies about a merger,” says N2N co-founder and chief operating officer, Todd Eaton. “After many conversations with Netwise and Visual Edge, we found that our companies are very similar in management styles and how we work with our customers. It’s a really good fit.”
The merger supports Visual Edge’s national strategy of exponential managed IT growth. “This will increase our ability to offer managed IT services to our base of over 75,000 clients nationwide,” says Mark Gibson, vice president of managed IT services for Visual Edge Technology, “and gives Netwise a centralized 24/7 nationwide service desk operated right from the company’s Indianapolis headquarters.”
Visual Edge Technology has announced the acquisition of Office Systems of Vermont.
As part of the deal, Office Systems will remain an independent operating company with advisory support from Visual Edge-owned Axion Business Technologies and its President, Robert Ferland.
“This really completes our overall strategy to have a footprint in all of the New England states,” said Ferland. “The potential for growth here is huge. We also get the added bonus of Office Systems’ market share in New Hampshire. One of the benefits for Office Systems’ customers is that we will bring new services to market that they would not have otherwise had access to, such as production print, managed print, and managed IT services.”
Visual Edge Technology has also acquired Business Technology Partners (BTP) in Orlando, FL. The management team of BTP will lead a 3-month transition, in an effort to move its operations to neighboring dealer, AXSA Imaging Solutions, Inc. (AXSA), also acquired by Visual Edge just last October.
Bob Christensen, president of AXSA and leader of Visual Edge Technology’s Florida growth strategy, commented on the deal, “Our goal at Visual Edge is very specific—to work with owners of small dealerships who need help with succession planning. We not only give them good value for their company, but we also carry on their legacy by taking care of their key employees and customers.”
“BTP’s president, Eric Williams, has done a great job of building the company. This is really the passing of the baton. He wants to make sure that his company, his people, and his employees are in good hands,” added Christensen.
