Benchmark International is pleased to announce the acquisition of London-based Zencom to Wynard-based Communicate.
Zencom supplies inbound and outbound call services to SMEs and blue-chip companies including call routing, invoicing and online real-time management call statistics.
Since 2011, Communicate has been a specialist in IT, telecoms and cyber-security, keeping over 500 businesses and 50,000 users connected and secure across the UK.
The acquisition will add specialist SME-centred services to Communicate’s offering and unlock new service lines. It is the company’s third buy as part of its buy and build strategy and has been facilitated by a £1.5m investment from BOOST&Co.
Tony Snaith, chief executive at Communicate, said: "This acquisition is a natural fit for our business and will enable us to bring our expertise to bear in the provision of our market-leading full-service offering.”
Chris Mears, principal at BOOST&Co, said: "The level of client focus and expertise in Communicate is highly impressive. The team is dedicated to making IT, telecoms and cyber requirements run smoothly and flexibly for their clients and take away the headache of dealing with multiple providers. This acquisition will broaden the offering and client base, while facilitating the next part of the continued growth journey."
