Evolve IP Acquires AiTech



Evolve IP has acquired Advanced Integrated Technologies, (AiTech), a cloud communications provider, for an undisclosed amount. The strategic purchase is part of Evolve IP's market development strategy and provides it a significant base of clients in the Midwest, along with the ability to provide those customers with cloud computing, contact center, and identity and access management services.

AiTech provides unified communications, IP phone systems, and data solutions leveraging Broadsoft's unified communications-as-a-service (UCaaS) platform. With the acquisition, AiTech clients will gain access to Evolve IP's OSSmosis cloud management portal and Clearlogin identity and access management authentication service. Additionally, AiTech clients can now adopt the Evolve Contact Suite, Evolve IP's omnichannel contact center.

Another unique element of the acquisition is Evolve IP's ability to integrate and customize a wide range of cloud computing solutions, including disaster recovery as a service, desktop as a service, Microsoft's Office 365, master data management, remote monitoring and management, IT as a service, and infrastructuure as a service, for AITech's customers.

"We are thrilled to welcome AiTech and their clients to the Evolve IP family," said Guy Fardone, CEO and founding partner of Evolve IP, in a statement. "The talented team in Minnesota will play a significant role in our successful expansion in the Midwest region of the United States, both in terms of sales, as well as carrying on their tradition of client support excellence. Our associates around the world are looking forward to their contributions."

"We are incredibly happy to be joining Evolve IP and for the opportunities it provides our associates, clients, and partners" said Greg Lohrenz, CEO and founder of AiTech, in a statement. "Evolve IP's OneCloud platform, with contact center, cloud computing, and identity and access management solutions, fits perfectly with our clients' push to the cloud and with our partners' desire to provide even more services to their base of customers. We're looking forward to driving tremendous growth in the Midwest with Evolve IP."
