("CompuCom(R)"), a technology infrastructure services company, announced it has agreed to acquire the Internet of Things (IoT) division of Extensys, a provider of IoT and managed IT services. The financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed, and the acquisition is expected to be finalized in 45 days.
With the acquisition of Extensys’ "EXT-IoT" division and integration of its core team, CompuCom bolsters its global infrastructure strategy and advances as a provider in delivering IoT solutions to its existing and new clients. Combining Extensys’ deep IoT expertise with CompuCom’s portfolio around end-user computing, cloud technology services and service experience management gives clients real choice in their quest for cost-efficient ways to maximize the opportunity around IoT.
CompuCom’s IoT team will be led by Roland Feijoo, EVP IoT Solutions Group (transitioning from CEO to Chairman at Extensys); Will Winn, SVP IoT Solution Sales; Matt Good, Director of Service Delivery; and Brian Hamm, Director of R&D.
Noted Feijoo, "We’re looking forward to expanding our capabilities with existing Extensys clients, serving new ones and delivering in new regions, and CompuCom’s U.S.-Canadian footprint and field force set it apart from any other company. Organizations need to be prepared to link thousands of IoT devices to their networks, and they need help managing, repairing and replacing those devices. CompuCom is ideally positioned to do that work, and joining forces makes us unrivaled in the ability to manage large IoT deployments."
