Canary Wharf-based OpportunIT was founded in 1998, while Serversys came into being in Reading the following year. The merger takes effect immediately and offices will be maintained in both locations with all staff being kept on.
The new company will trade as Serversys and, focusing predominantly on the mid-market, will boast combined revenue of about £4m. It will concentrate on strengthening its position in the CRM space as well as ramping up the business of its hand-held software technology division.
OpportunIT director Steve Blunn will join the board of the unified company, alongside existing Serversys directors Stuart Lawrence and Phil Catterall. Lawrence claimed Blunn's addition would ensure the firm would "have one of the strongest management structures in the CRM market place today".
Blunn added: "This merger will provide clients with an exceptional level of service and support. The benefits will be felt immediately, with a level of business and technical competency that will be unrivalled.”
