Local distributor MUA has acquired Omega Computer Systems in order to get its hands on the popular Citrix Winframe multi-user, thin-client software from Citrix Systems Australasia.
According to MUA's managing director, Paul McQuarrie, the deal with Omega resulted when extensive analysis of Winframe's success convinced MUA that it was a good buy.
"The product is a close fit with the multi-user interests of the current marketplace," McQuarrie said.
As part of the acquisition, MUA has picked up the entire Omega staff who are already comfortable with the technology and can offer training and advice to MUA's existing staff.
"The experience that they have in dealing with Citrix Winframe is something we required," McQuarrie said.
This expansion recently culminated with MUA's appointment by Microsoft as its national NT small business server.
McQuarrie refused to comment on rumours that suggested the managing director of both Omega Computer Systems and TeleSystems, John Foxe, could no longer give his complete attention to both organisations.
Foxe was travelling overseas and unavailable for comment when ARN contacted his office to respond to the rumours.
