Polycom specialist distributor, Unitel, has been acquired by South-East Asia-based Transition Systems.
Country manager for Transition Systems Australia, Mike Beesley, said Unitel, which was one of Commander's non-core businesses that went up for sale earlier in the year, presented the distributor with a strong opportunity to enter the market.
“We've been looking at an opportunity to enter the market for some time now,” Beesley said. “Transition has a strong partnership with Polycom, so the acquisition allows us to expand on and utilise that experience in Australia.”
Beesley said Unitel's six staff will come with the business. Transition would be looking to hire more staff.
“In the short term, we'll be setting up and focusing on our existing reseller base and building on the value-adding model we have overseas,” he said. “In terms of vendors, Unitel just represented Polycom. We don't have any plans to bring on other vendors at this time.”
