Arrow’s recently appointed managing director John Harber said the acquisition was made for as all the normal reasons such as getting new customer relationships. However now Arrow had its own hosted Mitel platform in our its data-centre.
This means that it can flog hosted telephony to punters and will be in complete control of the proposition from start to finish.
Workspace will join the Arrow group of companies with a revenue of £4.7 million, adding to the £24.6 million that Arrow filed for 2015.
Harber said that Arrow’s acquisition strategy is not yet complete – with the VAR still on the hunt for additions that will complement the firm from geographic and product perspectives – but remained tight-lipped on when the next deal will happen.
Harber started at Arrow earlier this month, after leaving his role as UK general manager at Lenovo. He held the same role at Sony earlier in his career.
