AVI-SPL Announces Agreement to Acquire SKC Communications

AVI-SPL, the world’s leading digital enablement solutions provider, today announces its formal agreement to acquire SKC Communications, a Kansas City-based collaboration technology company, bringing together two companies focused on empowering hybrid work and learning experiences to help people work smarter and live better.

Organizations of every size and segment are making unified communications and collaboration (UCC) the nucleus of their hybrid work and learning strategies. The combined companies are in an incredible position to lead the way, advance their mission, and accelerate their growth in this dynamic, growing, and transformative space. The acquisition also enhances the combined companies’ ability to give its growing customer base additional serviceable geographies and added capabilities across each of AVI-SPL and SKC core competencies.

SKC’s expertise in cloud voice services and unified communications as a service (UCaaS) adds to AVI-SPL’s comprehensive solutions portfolio that enables customer hybrid work strategies and helps their employees around the world feel more connected and engaged whether remote or in the office. Adding to AVI-SPL’s already mature UCC practices with Cisco, Google, Microsoft, and Zoom, SKC brings a rich legacy of voice communication solutions, including IP telephony and headsets, as well as long-standing partnerships with leading UCaaS providers like Avaya and deep experience helping customers migrate to cloud-based voice technologies.

“SKC has built deep relationships across its loyal customer base, offering best-of-breed UCC enterprise enablement. We’re thrilled to partner with such an incredibly talented team and welcome them to AVI-SPL,” said John Zettel, CEO of AVI-SPL. “As a combined company, we’ll be able to offer more services over more geographies to all of our customers as we look to become the UCC services provider and employer of choice in the U.S. and around the world.”
