12 April 2017 | 0
Emit has acquired the manage services business and customer base of Irish IT service provider, Softech. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Founded in 2003 and based in Santry, Dublin, Emit provides customers with IT solutions and managed IT as a service in cloud, business productivity, IT security and infrastructure.
Softech provides infrastructure, managed services, information management, cloud services and business intelligence solutions.
“We have been looking closely at several acquisition opportunities for some time,” said Emit founder and managing director Eamon Moore. “We believe that Softech is the perfect fit for our business right now, particularly with its successful pedigree in delivering high quality IT services and solutions. We welcome their knowledge and experience, and will integrate their offerings, team members and customers seamlessly into our business.
“Emit has very ambitious business development goals and will actively seek further growth, both organically and through further acquisitions.”
This acquisition will strengthen Emit’s managed service proposition and capabilities. It will also see Emit support a customer base of over 3,500 end users, across enterprise, SMB and public sector organisations.
Aidan Bailey, Softech, said: “After meeting and assessing several companies, I am fully confident that Emit is the best IT partner to look after the needs of our valued customer base. I pass on the business to Emit knowing that it will meet the same very high standards of professional service that our customers have experienced during their time with Softech.”
Emit is a Dell and Microsoft in Ireland partner. In 2016, it won Microsoft’s global small and midmarket cloud solutions partner of the year, as well as Microsoft Ireland SMB cloud partner of the year.
