September 18, 2013
ADDISON, IL –ITsavvy just acquired CT Networks as part of its growth by acquisition strategy. The move enhances ITsavvy’s trademarked savvyGuard and savvyCloud managed IT service offerings and adds new services and new product lines.
CT Networks made its mark by delivering the full potential of converged IT, voice, data, hosted and managed services with customized solutions. Their supplier network, including partners such as Cisco, Microsoft, VMware, Mitel, Citrix, Netapp and Evault, has allowed access to innovative, integrated solutions built on single source access to the best products. Their professional services engineers are some of the smartest and most experienced in the U.S. Like ITsavvy, CT Networks has consistently provided smart, fast and flexible solutions.
ITsavvy president and CEO Mike Theriault said, “CT Networks has an experienced, tenured, and dedicated staff with the same values and approach to client service that we have. Since they have been in business for nearly 30 years, their markets are well-developed, both geographically and vertically.”
CT Networks CEO Barry Goldstein agreed, saying, “Mike and I have both built strong integration firms and it was a natural fit. ITsavvy has been very successful with hardware and software and now they are expanding their IT services business. CT Networks is a top managed IT services organization that has a very strong market share in the delivery of virtual desktops and applications through the Cloud.”
ITsavvy’s clients will see many benefits including a wider choice of unified communications solutions and a deeper bench of expertise and experience. Clients of every size will now be able to source more products from ITsavvy. A significant value-add is the ability to provide in-person technical support to clients ITsavvy already serves in the Northeastern U.S.
CT Networks’ clients will realize big benefits as well. Goldstein said, “ITsavvy’s discounts and connections in the server and hardware business will allow us to deliver our Cloud solutions at a much lower cost. We will also have the ability to sell larger solutions to our clients based on ITsavvy’s engineering talent and purchasing power.”
Theriault emphasized that the superior service both companies’ clients have come to expect will only get better. In fact, CT Networks’ clients will now be able to view order and invoice status online and receive automated order and shipping confirmations. They will continue to work with the same industry-leading sales, technical, management and client service team they’ve come to rely on.
“Experienced personnel in our industry can be hard to find, and we welcome the opportunity to have CT Networks’ entire staff join the ranks at ITsavvy,” Theriault said. “They will make a big contribution to our existing workforce and allow us to continue our steep growth trajectory.”
Goldstein added that CT Networks’ clients and employees will notice no changes except significant expansion. “It’s a very exciting time for all of us,” he said.
