In July last year, we proudly announced that Connect Managed Services and G3 Comms were merging. From there, Conn3ct was born. But what prompted the merger and what makes Conn3ct different? Read on to find out about our unique approach.
To recap, Connect Managed Services and competitor G3 Comms merged to create a market-leading Customer Experience (CX) and Unified Communications (UC) managed services provider, generating annual revenues in excess of £55 million.
Conn3ct is now one of the largest firms of its kind in the UK, backed by Apiary Capital, which acquired a majority stake in G3 Comms in March 2019. Nicki Boyd, Partner at Apiary Capital, commented, “We are delighted to be supporting the compelling merger of Connect and G3.”
We’re proud to support global enterprise customers including Johnson & Johnson, BP and Diageo in the deployment and management of their CX and UC environments. But why Conn3ct — and what makes our approach different? Read on to learn more.
