SysGroup & Certus TG Better Together – 5 Key Benefits of Latest Acquisition

Written by Emmy Lippold

Have you heard our most recent news? SysGroup is growing again! 

We are proud to welcome Certus to our SysGroup family! 

The deal, announced early in February and completed on 25th of February, adds significant value to both organisations, allowing for expansion into new sectors and regions. 

Certus TG is a mid-sized end-to-end managed IT services provider founded in 2000. They are based in Newport, South Wales, and some of their customers include Admiral, Confused.com and Hugh James. 

We are better together - top 5 reasons why 

New Accreditations 

We have now added Dell EMC Gold Partner status to the larger group. In fact, Certus TG was named the 2015 Dell EMC Cloud Partner of the Year, so this really shows their level of expertise with Dell technologies. 

This complements our existing portfolio of senior vendor partnerships, which already includes WatchGuard Platinum Partner, Microsoft Gold Datacentre Partner and Kaspersky Gold Partner. 

Expanded Datacentre Footprint 

This enhances our datacentre network, with the addition of Certus’ 80 rack suite, located in the Tier 3+ Next Generation Data facility in Newport, South Wales. We have six other UK datacentres, which you can see here

More locations mean that customers will have greater choice. Their infrastructures can be hosted nearer them geographically for outstanding uptime and resilience. 

Increased Sector Reach 

Certus TG has an established presence in Professional Services and Manufacturing. Those connections enhance SysGroup's relationships in those sectors, as an addition to our current relationships in Financial Services, Retail, Insurance, Charity, Education and Healthcare. 

It means that customers can have confidence in our team of experts, who have built solutions for similar companies and understand sector-specific regulations and requirements to provide customised solutions. 

Further Geographical Reach 

Additionally, our extended geographical reach now includes South Wales, the South West and along the M4 Corridor. Certus customers will gain a physical presence in central London, the North West & Midlands. On-site visits from our technicians will be even easier than before, enhancing our connections to our clients. 

Enhanced Team Expertise 

The blending of Certus TG staff within the SysGroup team brings a whole new range of experiences. We are now 120 people strong with an impressive blend of expertise all united by a common goal – to provide the unrivalled services to our customers and growth opportunities to our team. We cannot wait to solve new complex challenges for clients with experience and insight from our new team members. 

We asked the leaders from SysGroup and Certus why they’re excited about this new venture: 

Adam Binks, SysGroup CEO said: 

Welcome to the SysGroup family Certus!  This deal is a massive step-change in our scale, helping SysGroup to reach new customers and continue growing. We believe we are better and stronger together and are excited by the opportunities that lie ahead!" 

Paul Brown, Certus TG CEO added: 

Combining the SysGroup and Certus TG customer bases will create lots of new opportunities to reach different sectors and parts of the UK. I’ve really enjoyed my time spent with the SysGroup team in recent months. I know first-hand that our values are the same: customer excellence, superior technology and outstanding company culture. Together we will certainly be even stronger than before!”
