JSE-listed technology firm Datatec announced on Monday that its subsidiary Logicalis SA has bought Cape Town-based Clarotech for an undisclosed amount.
Clarotech offers IP telephony and call centre cloud and managed services to SMBs in the region. Clarotech’s Open Source IPT solution is a unique fit for SMBs and delivered to customers as a managed cloud service.
Datatec said Clarotech has achieved strong vendor partnerships with companies such as Microsoft, VMware and Fortinet.
With the acquisition, Logicalis will be able to extend its managed services capability with a mature SMB customer base, strong services delivery and sales capabilities to drive scale and relevancy in the region.
“This acquisition enables Logicalis to combine a focused managed services operation with its existing business in South Africa, to support SMBs as well as larger corporate,” said Jens Montanana, Datatec’s CEO.
“Clarotech has been providing first rate solutions and services to its clients and will bring a strong capability to our business and provide the opportunity to upsell an increased portfolio of services to our clients, not just in South Africa but also around the globe.”
