North Canton, Ohio – As the demand for cutting-edge IT services continues to grow, Visual Edge Technology is bringing another core managed IT services provider into its Netwise Resources brand in the Midwest, with the recent acquisition of N2N Technologies of Indianapolis.
The agreement, which will transition operations of N2N’s two locations, including 18 employees, over to Netwise Resources, is the second acquisition of a core IT provider this year. Earlier this year, Zymphony Technology Solutions of Florida was acquired by Visual Edge.
A national leader in the engineering and K-12 education IT spaces, N2N has been a full-service IT provider of information and business technology solutions since 2008. N2N is known for its state-of-the-art private cloud hosting platform, a high point of the deal, that will now provide Visual Edge clients with a private cloud hosting option.
“N2N has had considerable growth in the past five years, and we’ve been approached by many companies about a merger,” says N2N co-founder and chief operating officer, Todd Eaton. “After many conversations with Netwise and Visual Edge, we found that our companies are very similar in management styles and how we work with our customers. It’s a really good fit.”
The merger supports Visual Edge’s national strategy of exponential managed IT growth. “This will increase our ability to offer managed IT services to our base of over 75,000 clients nationwide,” says Mark Gibson, vice president of managed IT services for Visual Edge Technology, “and gives Netwise a centralized 24/7 nationwide service desk operated right from the company’s Indianapolis headquarters.”
“We’re really excited. Together, we will be able to offer even better services to our customers and support the rest of our Visual Edge family with our network operation center,” added Eaton.
With N2N in Netwise’s backyard, Gibson says the transition into the Visual Edge family is expected to be smooth. “Both Eaton and co-founder and president, Travis Tillberry, will play a big role, providing seasoned executive experience to our IT services leadership team,” says Gibson.
Just last year, Netwise Resources too was acquired by Visual Edge, as the acquisition company continued its plan to build a network of managed IT services providers across the country. Today, Visual Edge continues to grow by seeking out new partners in the office equipment, managed print, and managed IT markets to join its team of over 1,000 employees, and 75,000+ combined clients nationwide.
