SAN ANTONIO, TX--(Marketwired - Dec 6, 2016) - Globalgig announces today that it has acquired leading VoIP provider Velis4. The acquisition adds hosted VoIP phone, SIP trunking, hosted call center and hosted Skype for Business services to the Globalgig suite of products and services, and further enhances the Globalgig strategy of providing multinational enterprises with a comprehensive suite of managed communications solutions. This announcement follows iGEM's recent acquisition of Globalgig, and effective immediately, Velis4's services will now be provided under the registered brand, Globalgig.
"We are extremely pleased to acquire Velis4, a company whose suite of services perfectly aligns with the Globalgig strategy of orchestrating hyperconnectivity for the enterprise business continuum," comments Globalgig Chief Executive Officer, Ernest Cunningham. "The enterprise mobility and managed communications market is currently fragmented, with no one provider offering the agility and ubiquity that today's global businesses require to operate at their maximum performance level. Globalgig's acquisition of Velis4 will further enhance our mission to solve this critical need."
Anthony Jett, Chief Executive Officer of Velis4, will be joining Globalgig as the Chief Operations Officer of the combined entity. Mr. Jett brings over 20 years of experience in telecommunications to Globalgig and will manage the day-to-day operations of the high-growth business.
"The mobility element of the VoIP market so far has been distinctly underserved," states Mr. Jett. "LTE finally provides a reliable VoIP connection to the mobile device, so bringing Velis4's technology leadership and Globalgig's mobile footprint together creates a synergy with tremendous enterprise market potential. I am very pleased to be joining Ernest and the Globalgig team, Ernest has a proven track record of accomplishment in telecommunications and I look forward to partnering with him to make Globalgig a success."
Today's enterprise must have on-demand access to voice and data services across geographic borders, diverse communications technologies, and disparate devices in real-time. To achieve maximum productivity, agility and efficiency across any device, national and international office or remote location, enterprises need a single source to orchestrate the hyperconnectivity of these disparate elements seamlessly, securely and without interruption to the business continuum. The acquisition of Velis4 and its accompanying suite of services will further enhance Globalgig's ability to orchestrate hyperconnectivity for the enterprise business continuum both domestically and internationally.
