Leading digital enablement solutions provider AVI_SPL announced the formal agreement to acquire Kansas City-based collaboration technology company SKC Communications. The acquisition brings together two companies focused on empowering hybrid work and learning experiences to help people to work and live better.
The acquisition also enhances the combined companies’ ability to give its growing customer base additional serviceable geographies and added capabilities across each of AVI-SPL and SKC core competencies.
“SKC has built deep relationships across its loyal customer base, offering best-of-breed UCC enterprise enablement. We’re thrilled to partner with such an incredibly talented team and welcome them to AVI-SPL,” said John Zettel, CEO of AVI-SPL. “As a combined company, we’ll be able to offer more services over more geographies to all of our customers as we look to become the UCC services provider and employer of choice in the U.S. and around the world.”
SKC’s expertise in cloud voice services and UCaaS adds to AVI-SPL’s comprehensive solutions portfolio, enabling customer hybrid work strategies and helping their employees around the world feel more connected anywhere. SKC brings a rich legacy of voice communication solutions as well as long-standing partnerships with leading UCaaS providers.
“As part of AVI-SPL, we’ll deliver greater value to customers at a greater scale with a broader and deeper UCC portfolio,” said Tray Vedock, Chairman of SKC. “We are excited about the future of the company and what it means for our customers as we continue to build on the foundations created by our incredible employees and partners over the last three decades.”
Like AVI-SPL, SKC offers an omnichannel approach to customer experience. From its heritage as a distributor, SKC established an online sales channel that today is the world’s largest direct reseller of Poly headsets. Together, customers will have quick and easy access to a more extensive product catalog powered by personalized service.
