This week we acquired the consulting business of Spinnaker Red, a specialist consultancy that provides IT optimisation and transformation services. This is an important and strategic development that will enable us to offer broader range of cloud-based services and solutions across the complete technology infrastructure landscape.

The acquisition of Spinnaker Red reflects the evolving needs of our customers, who are increasingly seeking assistance to review their IT environments in light of market, business and technological changes. There is a growing need for customers to develop appropriate IT strategies which optimise the benefits that IT can provide to their organisations, and they are seeking expertise to help them design new and enhanced technical solutions, and to deliver and manage the projects needed to achieve the desired outcomes.

For those of you who are not familiar with Spinnaker Red, the company has enjoyed continued success in the sector since it was founded in 2011. Providing consultancy services that range from requirement gathering to IT infrastructure strategy, with a client base that spans the breadth of industry sectors. We have worked together on a number of key projects in the past, which meant we were in a perfect position to see the outstanding capabilities of their consultancy team first-hand.

Spinnaker Red’s impressive track record is built upon many years of experience of delivering complex IT transformation projects. It also has a proven range of methodologies, tools and processes, which are very complementary to Pulsant’s capabilities. The Spinnaker Red consultancy team are highly experienced and their specialist knowledge will enable us to provide customers with an expanded range of IT consultancy services that help customers optimise their use of, and investment in, IT.

We are delighted that the acquisition has now been finalised and we’re confident that our customers will benefit hugely from our enhanced cloud infrastructure and broader services portfolio. It certainly puts us in an even stronger position to offer leading expertise in the areas of IT migration, project management and IT transformation projects for the future.
