Cloud services firm GlobalOne
is really trying to live up to its name, stretching its business even further
by acquiring Weblinc, a cloud computing application provider out of Australia.
GlobalOne took the initiative to buy Weblinc in order to strengthen its
capabilities in the Asia-Pacific region and expand its prowess in the field of
building and deploying enterprise cloud applications.
Weblinc has its headquarters in Brisbane, AU, but also enjoys offices in
major cities Sydney and Melbourne. The company also boasts more certified
Salesforce professionals than any of software company's other partners in Australia.
"Weblinc's expertise strategically complements GlobalOne's business and
offers customers a deeper and broader set of cloud services from a single
provider," says Weblinc CEO Paul Mansfield.
The Australian company, which likes to focus on architecture and mobility,
will offer GlobalOne a plethora of designs and templetes to solve problems like
revenue scheduling and complex quoting; GlobalOne plans to immediately
integrate the two business' locations and leadership structure.
"Acquiring Weblinc gives us the necessary knowledge, experience and
tools to create a global architecture practice," says John Orrock, COO of
GlobalOne. "This new practice will take cloud computing foundation assets
and thought leadership in cloud architecture to market."
This move comes hot off the heels of GlobalOne's launch of GlobalOne
Mobility, which offers professional services to build, deploy and maintain
mobile cloud apps for both consumer and enterprise environments. This also
marks the company's third acquisition in four months.
