Vox Telecom has announced the acquisition of consulting and business applications firms Two IT and Computer Initiatives (CI).
Both companies, which have regional presence in the Western Cape and Gauteng respectively, deliver specialist consulting and solutions in Microsoft Dynamics and business applications.
Vox Telecom is an independent black-owned telecoms operators, providing voice and data services to the Southern African market.
“The acquisition of both Two IT and CI enables us to add a layer of consulting services and business applications, particularly in the Microsoft environment, to our current stack for medium and enterprise-size customers,” said Jacques du Toit, CEO of Vox Telecom.
Combined with Vox Cloud, we are now able to offer affordable ERP and CRM solutions to businesses that have traditionally not been able to afford investment in these systems. Something we have been looking to do for a while now.”
The two organisations will merge to become a new division within Vox Telecom that delivers specialist Microsoft ERP, CRM and business applications, together with a strong consultancy focus.
The deal secures the existing management of the two organisations, and the division will be headed up by Two IT founder, Heath Huxtable.
Computer Initiatives managing director, Ronald Laxton will be responsible for leading the business development team.
The financial terms of the deal was not disclosed.
Vox has offices in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban, Cape Town and Port Elizabeth as well as in Windhoek, Namibia.
The group has been subject to acquisition rumours of its own of late. In June 2014, Vox invited local and international companies to look into acquiring the telecoms operator.
This process has progressed well, and with duToit saying that the search for a potential buyer is 60% complete.
Reunert, Altron, and Seacom are some of the companies which are rumoured to be interested.
