MB Technologies makes a Cloud play

May 15, 2014

MB Technologies has entered into an agreement to purchase a majority interest in Cloud On Demand. Tarsus Technologies (an MB Technologies subsidiary) had previously entered into a distribution agreement with Cloud On Demand and this acquisition by the group shows the commitment to offer services to its channel beyond the traditional business lines of IT Hardware Distribution.

Says Miles Crisp, Group CEO of MB Technologies “Cloud computing is a significant paradigm shift in the IT market. Cloud On Demand has a compelling value proposition for our partners that enables them to easily offer Cloud services to customers and in the process adapt their businesses. The purchase fits with our future strategy and the company joins GAAP and Secure Data, in delivering on this.”

“We believe that the South African Cloud market is on the cusp of major growth and the deal with MB Technologies provides us with back office resources, financial backing and an excellent channel model and relationships. Our next phase will allow us to scale our business and deliver cost effective Public and Hybrid Cloud services to the IT channel” says Jonathan Kropf, CEO of Cloud on Demand.

Cloud On Demand has already moved into the new MB Technologies distribution centre and is well on its way to entrenching its value proposition in the channel.
