PETALUMA, CA and LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 04/02/12 -- Intelisys Communications, Inc., the nation's leading master agency distributor of business technology services, announced today a definitive agreement to acquire Cloud Services Coalition (CSC), a wholly owned DBA of Terrapin Solutions. The new business unit, Intelisys Cloud Services and Complex Bids will continue to fulfill the charter of Cloud Services Coalition and integrate the legacy SWAT and Collaboration programs from Intelisys. The acquisition is scheduled to close on May 1, 2012.
The new Intelisys Cloud services business unit will focus on supporting Sales Partners through the entire Cloud sales process including technical, business and application discovery, solution design, project management and turn-key onsite installation and training. Terrapin Solutions will remain a separate entity, fully owned by Andrew Pryfogle, while the CSC team will be integrated into Intelisys with Pryfogle leading the unit as Intelisys Senior Vice President and General Manager.
"Andrew has assembled a world-class team at CSC of consultative sales professionals and Cloud engineers focused on designing and delivering winning Cloud solutions," said Jay Bradley, President of Intelisys. "As a turn-key Cloud services integrator, CSC is already doing the heavy-lifting on complex Cloud solutions for a growing base of channel partners, and has already provided over 150 Intelisys Sales Partners with training, sales assistance and customer support," Bradley added.
According to CRN, SMB spending on Cloud Computing will reach $100B by 2014. With the adoption of Cloud services exploding, Intelisys Sales Partners will be fully equipped to build rich recurring revenue bases in the Cloud.
"Intelisys is staking its claim as the go-to master agent for all things Cloud with this acquisition," said Pryfogle. "Building on the success we have had as partners over the last 18 months, no other company in the channel is better positioned to enable agents to profit from the pivot to the Cloud.
