Avtex acquires Convergent

MINNEAPOLIS, USA: Avtex Solutions, LLC announced the acquisition of Convergent, a technology solutions provider recognized nationally for its expertise in Microsoft Unified Communications (UC) and storage solutions.

This announcement comes two months after the announced merger of Avtex and Inetium, two technology firms of the Pohlad Family Companies. Under the umbrella of the Pohlad Family Companies, the union of Convergent, Inetium and Avtex is part of a broader strategy to integrate complimentary technology organizations, building upon each set of strengths to bring solutions and services to market.

Convergent, founded a decade ago by John Dusek, has built a solid reputation and a loyal client base by applying technology solutions and processes to improve employee productivity and company-wide efficiency. By focusing on simplifying enterprise storage and streamlining communications, the company quickly earned national recognition including an elite status with Microsoft as one of the first enterprise voice specialists with proven expertise in UC.

“By combining Convergent’s proven skills in unified communications with Avtex’s core competency in contact centers and Inetium’s SharePoint and CRM experience, we are well positioned to impact the enterprise communication and collaboration marketplace,” said Dave Johnson who serves as CEO of Avtex Solutions, LLC. and oversees the technology holdings of Pohlad Family Companies.

The new Avtex will also be investing in innovation. A newly formed innovation team made up of individuals from Inetium, Avtex and Convergent is already at work developing solutions focusing on the core platforms of Microsoft SharePoint, Lync, and Dynamics CRM.
