Prism Facilitate Another Cloud Direct Acquisition

This latest acquisition is part of Cloud Direct’s ongoing, ambitious organic and acquisitions-based growth strategy that it has been working on with Prism Corporate Broking.

It follows hot on the heels of Cloud Direct’s January acquisition of alwaysON Group, a Microsoft gold partner for hosting and communications. In previous months, Cloud Direct acquired Redblade in July 2016, ihotdesk in December 2015 and Datel Business Systems in June 2015.

The acquisition of Connect Support Services further strengthens Cloud Direct’s customer services and technical support capabilities. As a gold Microsoft CSP partner, the acquisition particularly serves to bolster Cloud Direct’s offerings around Microsoft Azure, Office 365 and hosted desktop.

Brett Raynes, founder and CEO of Cloud Direct said: “Connect Support Services brings great people with a great ethos, as we continue to invest in cloud services that help small to midsize organisations become more competitive, productive and agile – mainly through our expertise in cloud migration and management.

“We’ve been helping businesses move to the cloud since 2003 – quickly, easily and securely. We’re excited to bring everyone from Connect on board so we can drive even better business continuity, people productivity and infrastructure for customers.”

Brett concludes: “Our strength lies in our focus and commitment to our defined processes and principles plus determination. We like to work with like-minded organisations and that’s why we chose to work with Prism Corporate Broking, we felt they had similar business ethics to us with a focussed attitude toward assignments and with great experience under their belts. The deals progressed as we hoped, smoothly and relatively quickly.”
