Prism assist with ambitious programme of growth for Docklands IT Company

Connect Support Services have today announced the acquisition of cloud provider, Hosted Revolution as part of ambitious plans to expand their hosting business.

Having experienced steady growth since their inception in 1993, providing fixed price IT support services to SMEs, Connect is now looking to build scale within the company’s hosted platforms and expand through a program of acquisitions.

Prism Corporate Broking, specialist brokers within the ICT arena, was chosen to identify and vet potential targets and manage the entire acquisition process. Prism has just completed Connect’s first acquisition of cloud provider, Hosted Revolution.

Hosted Revolution was an early entrant into the cloud, and offer scalable hosted solutions tailored to their client’s requirements. From hosted desktop, online backup and hosted VOIP, the company’s expertise and product portfolio perfectly complements Connect’s wide range of IT services. The staff at Hosted Revolution’s London offices will re-locate to Connect’s offices near Canary Wharf.

Mark MacGregor, Chief Executive of Connect Support Services comments, “We are delighted with our first acquisition. Hosted Revolution fits well within our current product and service offering. As well as inheriting a large pool of contract based customers, we are delighted to welcome the excellent business development and support team to Connect. We are now actively looking for new IT businesses to acquire to accelerate our growth at a faster rate.”

Peter Watson, Managing Director from Prism Corporate Broking added: “This is an exciting time for both companies. The synergies between Connect and Hosted Revolution are clear: both operate within the small to medium sized business arena, both embrace new technology by offering fixed fee solutions and have a personal approach to their clients. I look forward to seeing the results of the integration and their future growth.”
