Hampshire-based PC Connection picked up ValCom and got its cloud-based IT service management software, WebSPOC as part of the deal. ValCom will still operate as a wholly-owned subsidiary under the same name.
For VARs, distributors and MSPs with a little money to spend, 2011 was a big year as companies across the channel consolidated and integrated. From big-box retailers like Best Buy looking to expand in the SMB market to distributors shedding "non-core assets" to companies on MSP-buying-binges, the channel was a hotbed of M&A activity. Why the moves to consolidate so quickly? Many companies were looking to build a greater presence in the cloud as the market begins to boom.
