News : Jasco Buys Call Centre Firm
June 12, 2014 -- Jasco has entered into an agreement with ConvergeCom and Telesto Communications, in which Jasco Enterprise will acquire Telesto from ConvergeCom.
Telesto was founded in 1999 and has offices in Centurion as well as presences in Cape Town and Durban.
Telesto provides Avaya Contact Centre solutions, with a strong focus on Outbound Dialling systems.
Telesto was previously owned by JSE-listed ConvergeNet Holdings, but was subsequently sold in October 2013 following a successful management buy-out transaction whereby ConvergeCom acquired 100% of the equity of Telesto.
Telesto focuses on providing call centre solutions, specifically for inbound & outbound applications in the collections, telemarketing and telesales industries.
"The Acquisition provides the Jasco group with an opportunity to bolster its Enterprise division with an additional service offering whilst also ensuring consolidation in the South African dialler industry and securing new clientele," Jasco said.
