NEW DELHI, INDIA: Aspect, a provider of applying unified communications (UC) and collaboration, today announced it has acquired Quilogy Inc., a nationally recognized IT services firm, headquartered in Saint Charles, Mo. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
The acquisition adds collaboration capabilities to Aspect’s unified communications services portfolio to help organizations improve business processes with the combined capabilities of these technologies, said a press release.
Bringing together unified communications and collaboration software applications with systems integration (SI) capabilities allows customers to achieve business objectives more effectively than through services or applications individually.
Aspect and Quilogy share mutual expertise in Microsoft technologies. In a strategic equity partnership with Microsoft Corp., Aspect has expertise in unified communications, while Quilogy, a Microsoft National Systems Integrator, provides strategic and technical knowledge in collaboration tools for key Microsoft platforms including its fastest-growing product, Microsoft SharePoint.
Quilogy also offers a broad range of Microsoft capabilities and additional vertical industry experience to Aspect in the areas of healthcare and public sector.
“Quilogy’s expertise in Microsoft SharePoint and the broader collaboration space, coupled with Aspect’s global unified communications leadership and strategic equity alliance with Microsoft, are a formidable combination in the enterprise technology market,” said Jim Foy, chief executive officer, Aspect.
He added that the opportunities for innovation with our unified communications applications for the contact center will mean new product capabilities, customized solution development, and tighter ties to enterprise resources for their contact center customers.
The combined company will offer unified communications and collaboration services, including IT and SI services, such as strategic planning, design and architecture, user experience and interface design, implementation and hosting, user adoption and training, custom development, and business process consulting for Microsoft and Aspect software and platforms.
As part of the acquisition, Quilogy’s experienced team of application development and IT services experts will join Aspect Professional Services and its growing IT services practice.
“Quilogy has a long-standing relationship with Microsoft and is among its leading national systems integrator partners. With this acquisition, we now have the scale to deploy resources across the globe to meet our customer’s needs,” said Manish Chandak, former president, Quilogy.
