Securecom buys Simpl's infrastructure business

Networking and security specialist Securecom has bought Auckland integrator Simpl’s infrastructure business. Securecom director Jon Kalaugher says its customers wanted access to a full range of IT services, but his company wanted to continue being infrastructure specialists, so a partnership with Simpl made sense. “We’ve been experiencing some pretty strong growth and it’s all been referral driven. Our customers came looking for the complete set of IT services and our growth has been based on being specialists in what we do. We’d known of Simpl through the industry and their reputation.” The acquisition, completed on November 1, saw Securecom’s 30 staff move to Simpl House. Simpl had 8 staff in its infrastructure business. Kalaugher says there have already been increased business opportunities by meeting the needs of some of eachother’s clients. As a result, Securecom is hiring as it goes through the integration phase. Simpl managing director Bennett Medary says because there is a mature market demanding specialist, high-end infrastructure services, the business model it has adopted with Securecom will become more common in the industry. “A lot of these services are being commoditised on the one hand but on the other hand you have the convergence of IT and communications so there’s a lot of entrepreneurial opportunity to how you bundle services. “I felt that Simpl in our old structure wasn’t the best vehicle to deliver the level of excellence and skill that’s needed and at the price the market’s looking for.”
