Kelway Completes Equanet Acquisition

London, 2nd April 2013 - Kelway, the IT solutions and services provider, has formally completed the acquisition of Equanet, the non-trade and public sector IT solutions brand of Dixons Retail plc. Equanet's systems have now been fully transitioned on to the Kelway infrastructure, supported by the integration of Equanet and Kelway customer service and technical teams.

Equanet is a leading IT provider in the North of England, and as part of the integration, Kelway will be establishing a new regional HQ in the Greater Manchester area. This reinforces Kelway's local presence throughout the UK & Ireland, which was extended last year by the acquisition of BSS, the Belfast-based Microsoft Large Account Reseller (LAR).

The new Manchester office will provide a platform for Kelway to service the needs of the mid-market in the region, and extends Kelway's national reach in supporting large enterprise and public sector customers.

"We are delighted to complete the acquisition of Equanet. In the short-time we've been working together, Equanet's team have already proven impressive and are a good fit within the Kelway Group," comments Dan Laws, Managing Director of Kelway.

The benefits to Kelway customers will include the integration of Equanet's proven e-commerce platform into ServiceTrack, Kelway's existing award-winning order management system. This will deliver the most comprehensive e-commerce and procurement system in the market.

The completion of the Equanet acquisition also strengthens Kelway's position within the software solutions market, with a new software offering being created by combining both companies' Microsoft LAR accreditations.
