PETALUMA, CA and LAS VEGAS, NV, Apr 02, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
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,"
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. I am thrilled for this amazingly
talented CSC team to now be a part of the best-of-the-best Intelisys
Partner community, and now the home for the Channel's top-producing
Agents in the Cloud," Pryfogle added.
"On behalf of my partners Rick Dellar and Dana Topping, and the
entire Intelisys team, I want to welcome Andrew and his CSC team to
the most amazing and professional Partner community in the channel,"
said Intelisys Co-Founder Rick Sheldon. "Based on the remarkable
results we have already achieved with the CSC team as partners in
terms of building the Cloud funnel and closing key deals, we are
really excited to have them join Intelisys as full time colleagues.
For them, for our Sales Partners, and for a whole new group of very
sharp Cloud service providers this is the beginning of something very
big," Sheldon added.
