24 June 2015, Johannesburg – Vox Telecom has expanded its consulting and integration capabilities, with the acquisition of Wishlist Corporation, a certified Microsoft Dynamics partner. The acquisition makes Vox Telecom, through its Microsoft Consulting and Software Integration division, one of the largest Microsoft Dynamics partner for the mid-market in southern Africa.
“One thing we are certain of, is that companies are becoming increasingly dependent on cloud-based solutions and even more dependent on bandwidth. Our ability, through our expertise, and Vox Telecom’s infrastructure, to offer these critical functions, under one banner is very exciting and presents a number of opportunities,” says Neville Levinthal, former shareholder of Wishlist Corporation, and business development manager for Vox Telecom’s Microsoft Consulting and Software Integration division.
The acquisition, which was finalised in April for an undisclosed amount, has seen the Wishlist Corporation team, as well as its customer base, migrate to Vox Telecom.
“But,” adds Heath Huxtable, executive head of the Microsoft Consulting and Integration division at Vox Telecom, “this does not mean that one product will be considered more important than the other. Our vision is to run both Microsoft Dynamics GP and NAV independently, and enable us to cover a broader spectrum of midmarket and corporate companies as part of our divisional and business growth objectives.”
“This acquisition, which is the fourth in just over a year, forms a strategic part of our differentiation strategy and is intended to further entrench us as an end-to-end technology partner to our customers.” concludes Huxtable.
