THUS Mobile resellers now have a great opportunity to sell customers a wider set of solutions including hosted IT, data and software services following the sale of the business to Genesis Communications.
The Bury-based mobile VSP has acquired the business and assets of THUS Mobile from Cable&Wireless for an undisclosed sum. The deal makes Genesis the UKs largest independent mobile virtual service provider, supporting over 23,000 business customers with annual revenues of approximately 70 million.
THUS Mobiles existing 18 resellers will be able to offer customers a broader portfolio of software-as-a-service (SaaS) products and services that provide a converged solution to help businesses increase efficiencies and productivity.
Piers Linney, a Director of Genesis, said, This transaction enables THUS resellers to offer a package of voice and data services that is much more relevant for todays fast moving businesses. Customers no longer want voice and data services in isolation. Instead, converged systems offer greater cost savings and increased productivity for businesses, as well as enabling resellers to strengthen and secure relationships with their existing mobile customer base.
The acquisition comes three weeks after Genesis acquired Increase CRM, to become the UKs leading provider of hosted Microsoft Dynamics CRM services.
