As flexibility and remote working requirements have increased due to COVID, so too has our reliance on Cloud technology.
Microsoft Cloud specialist Rapid Circle has improved its offering to Australian enterprise customers through the acquisition of Insync Technology, a specialist Microsoft modern workplace partner.
According to Stewart Bairstow, Australian CEO of Rapid Circle, “The acquisition of this key Microsoft partner signals the first step in Rapid Circle’s local growth plans and enhances our capability to help Australian organisations work digitally smarter and more efficiently.”
Rapid Circle claims that the acquisition is just the first of many in its growth strategy as it works to add capability to its specialisation on the Microsoft ecosystem. The company’s growth strategy for the next 18 months includes the goal to invest more than $50m into Microsoft businesses in Australia, Singapore and New Zealand.
Rapid Circle is looking to join forces with other Microsoft partners.
Bairstaw says, “Further acquisitions are in the pipeline and we are always on the lookout for great Microsoft partner businesses that have goals of taking on the large, ineffective IT businesses and exceeding customers’ expectations.”
Insync Technology works with organisations to improve their workplace computing, intelligent communications, security & identity and adoption & change management — all aspects that Insync claims are critical to a modern workplace.
According to Nathan Belling, General Manager of Insync Technology, “This acquisition will allow us to provide customers and Microsoft with end-to-end modern workplace offerings, including business process optimisation with Power Platform, customer relationship management and managed Azure Cloud services.”
Bairstow claims that there are more than 115m daily active users of Microsoft Teams, signalling an area of unlocked opportunity for on-demand Cloud services to meet remote working requirements.
He says, “The hybrid workplace of the future involves collaboration platforms like Microsoft Teams to bring organisations together digitally, work productively or learn effectively.”
