Digicel has acquired a controlling stake in Netxar Technologies, a systems integrator in the Caribbean region. Effective immediately, the two companies will work together as the region's newest information and communications technology provider, says a spokesperson.
Netxar has won regional and global awards, holds a Gold Certification Master Unified Communication and Master Managed Service Partner, and is a member of Cisco's elite 1% partners out of 64,000+ partners worldwide. It is based in Puerto Rico and has operations in the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, and Trinidad and Tobago.
"For years, corporate and public sector customers have been searching for a business partner who can deliver both world-class telecommunication services and ICT solutions,” says president and CEO of Netxar, Frank Santiago. “Now, customers will benefit from technology solutions that leverage their IT framework as a competitive advantage while reducing operational costs and increasing productivity."
Digicel has been offering ICT systems to businesses across the region since 2007, helping Caribbean companies benefit from more integrated communications and reduced ICT spending.
"The support and involvement of Digicel which, in 10 years, has had such a positive impact on the Caribbean communications space will see us delivering even better solutions to an even broader range of corporate customers," Santiago adds.
"Since we started focusing on delivering ICT solutions to Caribbean corporate customers in 2007, we have made big inroads and are proud to serve the Caribbean's biggest business names. In Jamaica for instance, Digicel serves over 70% of the corporate market," Kevin White, COO of Digicel Group, comments.
"This will see us increasing our ICT presence across the Caribbean and Central America and offering customers a broader and deeper product portfolio backed by Digicel's award-winning customer service. Our customers are set to benefit from being with the region's newest ICT powerhouse,” White continues.
