Midwich acquires Vantage Systems, moves to provide managed services

Midwich has announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire the trade and assets associated with the services business of Vantage Systems, an Australian inified communications managed services business.

Headquartered in Melbourne, Vantage Systems provides managed services that support customers to maximise the utilisation of their UC systems. After the successful acquisition of Starin Marketing [US], the transaction further strengthens Midwich’s commitment to the UC market.

The business will report into Michael Broadbent, managing director of Midwich Australia. Previous shareholder, Mark Buckley, managing director of Vantage Systems, will remain with the business and will help lead the growth of Midwich’s UC offering across the APAC region.

Broadbent commented: “An important focus for Midwich is to develop its product and technology portfolio in ways that answer the changing requirements of the market and add value to our existing and growing customer base. Through the acquisition of Vantage Systems, Midwich can address the demand for unified collaboration, which requires an immediacy and continuation of service to ensure true global interaction and a positive user experience. Part of the acquisition process will see the consolidation of the Midwich MiSupport enhanced warranty after care service with the vCare Maintenance program. This will bring a world-class follow-the-sun model to our customer support, offering faster resolution times but more significantly, it will fully maximise our availability by bringing our customers the benefit of a true global presence.”

Buckley commented: “The Vantage team are excited to join the Midwich Group to help capture the next phase of leadership and growth, while driving continued innovation in the UC & AV markets. This marks a huge milestone in Vantage’s history and will help fuel our progression in delivering cloud and managed services as we look to expand into new markets and continue our growth trajectory, building on the founders insight since 1995.”
