TelePacific Communications is expanding its capabilities and reach to a nationwide audience with a definitive agreement to acquire DSCI, a Waltham, Mass.-headquartered managed services provider.
DSCI’s substantial business customer set throughout the Northeast and unified communications, managed IT and connectivity services bring additional depth and unified communications capabilities to TelePacific’s managed services portfolio. The two companies are privately held and terms of the agreement were not released.
This acquisition is a significant milestone in TelePacific’s transformation from a market-leading regional business telecommunications provider to a major player in the rapidly consolidating and evolving managed services universe. The company currently is riding a 55 straight quarter growth trajectory. With the addition of DSCI, TelePacific will have nearly 50% of its business in the fast-growing managed services segment and a complete set of products, including over-the-top unified communications and managed IT services.
“Bringing DSCI’s industry-leading technology and passion for serving customers into TelePacific makes incredible sense,” says Dick Jalkut, president and CEO of TelePacific. “We’ve both worked to build sterling reputations for customer care and service, married to leading-edge technology that enables businesses to focus on growing their bottom lines instead of managing their infrastructures. We were looking to bring hosted PBX in-house but found something much more valuable. DSCI is a leader in unified communications and managed IT that help remove the constraints of geography, technology and CAPEX that can hobble business growth. We’re tremendously excited by the complementary nature of our businesses and shared values. We fill in each other’s gaps and see enormous opportunities for growth that our combined resources open up on an expanded national stage.”
