Synoptek has announced the acquisition of Critigen's managed IT services division. What could the acquisition mean for both of these companies?
May 6, 2014
Synoptek, a company that provides managed IT solutions and geospatial IT services, has acquired Critigen‘s managed IT services division. Synoptek Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Tim Britt said Critigen, which provides project management support and turnkey hosted solutions, could help his company meet the growing demand for cloud IT services.
“This acquisition will provide a stronger platform by which to meet the growing demand for cloud-based IT capacity and IT-as-a-service (ITaaS) solutions,” Britt said in a prepared statement. “Ultimately, companies want to focus on their business, and they want great systems that work. That is what we deliver.”
According to a press release, the combination of Synoptek and Critigen will provide a hybrid solution that “allows customers to plan, build and operate critical systems and consume many cloud-based IT services on a subscription basis.”
Meanwhile, Critigen will bring its portfolio of managed IT services to Synoptek, including:
Managed infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS)/private cloud solutions
Remote infrastructure monitoring and management
Support for desktops, networks, servers and workstations
Virtual data center management
Critigen CEO Jim Eberle added the acquisition could help both companies improve their IT services.
“I am confident that the combined Synoptek-Critigen team will now be able to provide even greater world-class managed IT services to companies within our markets,” Eberle said in a prepared statement.
