Digital transformation is no small feat. And in this time of great uncertainty, it is critical businesses are supported with the appropriate technology solutions. From cloud communications and cybersecurity, to SD-WAN and more, modern operations require next generation solutions.

Today, managed IT and SD-WAN provider Meriplex Communications announced the acquisition of Vergent Communications on May 1, 2020.

"Vergent Communications provides Meriplex with an immediate and meaningful footprint in the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area," says David Henley, CEO of Meriplex. "We look forward to continuing Vergent's successful approach to providing personalized customer service while adding tremendous value via advanced cybersecurity integrations and securely managed IT solutions."

Founded nearly 30 years ago as Fluent Systems, Vergent was born as the firm’s telecommunications division in 2004 and today offers data and voice communications to businesses here in the U.S. The purchase is a rung in Meriplex’s long term growth strategy, as the managed services provider will continue to push presence, in new regions with track record of an award-winning, industry leader.

Will Gibson, former CEO of Vergent Communications, commented, "This acquisition provides an opportunity for Vergent Communications customers to benefit from more comprehensive and robust solutions from the Meriplex portfolio with the ability to gain access into more resources from a larger organization."

Acquisition is an effective means of expansion. With demand mounting by the minute for business transformation, remote work, business continuity and more, the time is right fro providers to approach the space aggressively.
