SPS Acquires Multimedia and UC Specialist ExtraTeam in Strategic Managed Services Move

By Laura Stotler

Strategic Products and Services (SPS) has expanded its portfolio of managed services offerings with the acquisition of multimedia and unified communications (UC) specialist ExtraTeam. SPS, which is also a seasoned systems integrator, acquired the MSP to build out its offerings in the areas of networking, communications and data centers.

ExtraTeam specializes in UC, collaboration, video, cloud solutions and managed services. The service provider offers customer support throughout all aspects of technology rollout, including design, integration and management of services. They also specialize in communications applications and services, including core infrastructure, voice, contact center solutions, video and collaboration technologies.

The MSP’s competencies are a good fit for SPS, which also specializes in custom, managed, real-time UC solutions. The company’s portfolio includes telephony and video services as well as IM and contact center solutions. SPS services are built on equipment from a range of vendors including Avaya, Cisco, Microsoft and Polycom, which meshes well with ExtraTeam’s offerings.

"We are impressed with ExtraTeam's technical capabilities and culture of teaming with clients to enhance business outcomes," said John Poole, president and CEO of SPS. "Our common competencies enable us to broaden our reach and strengthen existing partner relationships, while our adjacent capabilities extend greater value within our client base."

SPS has been working over the past few months to reposition itself as a UC system integrator and MSP. The company offers a number of differentiators like consulting and integration and aims to improve customers’ business processes and educate them on the benefits of UC technologies and services. The MSP does this by making training courses available through its website along with informative blog posts and other educational materials.
