ZephyrTel is building a world-class telco practice, to provide a multi-solution and services proposition to the global telco industry and leading enterprises. The company’s primary objective is to offer software and SaaS solutions across telco companies IT estates; from infrastructure right through to customer experience. This, coupled with high levels of industry domain expertise, will enable it to offer consultancy on both business strategy and technology execution.
Having already acquired several telecom software companies, ZephyrTel is currently adding to its portfolio, at pace. The newly acquired company will be marketed by its valued, familiar product name and sit under the corporate brand, helping ZephyrTel to meet its ambition to build a Telco Software Group of circa $100M in the short term.
Now the firm will be able to call upon ESW’s state of the art software development organisation and performance improvement processes to supplement Vasona’s proven capabilities, where needed, to continue to offer the industries’ highest levels of service delivery, stability and throughput. Additionally, the access to high-quality global services resources will enable ZephyrTel to deliver extended geographic support to its customers. The business aims to offer the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) and superior customer value through its established, “tried and tested”, customer value programmes.
Mike Shinya, CEO, ZephyrTel comments: “ZephyrTel is growing quickly, in fact, this is our fourth acquisition in just over 3 months. As a result, we believe we are very well placed to serve the global telecommunications software market, from the smallest to the largest of companies.
