Consolidated Technologies, Inc. (CTI), a converged technologies company and Avaya Gold Partner, announced today that Stage 2 Networks, a cloud communications leader in the New York metropolitan area with a portfolio of hosted voice and data services, has acquired the hosted VoIP business division of its company. The acquisition allows for both companies to focus on their core areas of strength with Stage 2 Networks expanding its hosted VoIP enterprise and CTI strengthening its system integration business.
“This is a perfect opportunity for both companies to grow our organizations and concentrate on our primary services,” said David Blau, founding Partner and Chief Strategy Officer of Consolidated Technologies, Inc. “CTI has enjoyed significant growth in the Enterprise communications market. We are putting considerable investment into our market leading practice of implementing Avaya solutions for these large customers. We believe that our renewed focus will further accelerate our expansion.”
“With our Avaya partnership growing so quickly, it made sense for us to exit the hosted VoIP space,” Blau continued. “An added bonus to this transaction is that we will continue to partner with Stage 2, as we still have many customers and prospects that will benefit from hosted services. I have personally known Joe Gillette of Stage 2 for 15 years. He has built a capable and reputable service provider in Stage 2, and CTI’s hosted clients will be in great hands.”
As the premier Broadsoft hosted carrier in the New York metropolitan area and experts in business voice and data solutions, Stage 2 Networks’ newly acquired customers will have additional service options that can be integrated or added to their current hosted solutions. In addition, Stage 2 provides live customer support 24 hours per day, 7 days a week.
“By acquiring the hosted VoIP division of CTI, we have expanded our market-leading footprint while becoming stronger as a company, both operationally and financially.” said Joseph P. Gillette, CEO of Stage 2 Networks and a founding member of the Cloud Communications Alliance.
