This acquisition provides an excellent springboard to enter the mobility product space to support the launch of our own applications such as Hosted Desktop, Hosted Lync, Hosted Broadsoft and Exchange.”

Ross Cooper, joint Managing Director of CommsXchange said “My business partner David Bennett and I are very excited by the opportunity that this coming together creates for us and all of our team members, we are absolutely focused on carrying on our momentum and embracing the additional opportunities that being part of a large organisation like GCI brings. We felt that although we had grown a successful business and we are on a steepening curve this was the right move for us to make at this juncture. Becoming part of GCI will enhance what we can deliver to customers and because GCI seem to share many of the same ideologies and focuses the chance of this acquisition being a success for all involved is extremely high.”
