June 2019: Converged ICT Services Provider GCI has today announced the acquisition of Modality Systems, the world’s largest dedicated Microsoft communications and collaboration practice with operations in the UK, USA, Asia and Australia. The acquisition will enable GCI to expand its business internationally for the first time and capitalise on the growing global market for its Microsoft-based, cloud-enabled intelligent communications services. This is the first step for GCI in an established plan to drive global presence.
As well as geographic scope and reach, the acquisition also enables GCI to broaden and sharpen its services offering. Modality Systems has developed a variety of software technologies which enable enhanced features, deeper management capability and improved ease of use of Microsoft intelligent communications software. This complements GCI’s existing UC offerings and will ensure that customers gain the very best experience from collaboration tools including Microsoft Teams, and Office 365.
Additionally, Modality Systems provides a suite of video conferencing services, with full service video room management, video bridging and web consultation offerings, all integrated seamlessly into the Microsoft collaboration suite.
