Dallas/Fort Worth, January 1, 2011 – Teople, a managed information technology (IT) services provider, announced their merger with Technology Pointe, a leading network integration and services firm in Austin. The merger makes Technology Pointe a market leading Austin and Dallas/Fort Worth IT managed services provider (MSP) that is headquartered in Texas and focused exclusively on serving small and medium-sized businesses in Texas. The combined organization will retain the leadership talent of both companies and enhance the service capabilities, client service levels and industry expertise that each company offers to their expansive customer base.
“As we continued to grow throughout Texas, we sought to develop a strategic partnership with Teople to help us provide the same unparalleled service to the Dallas area that we provide here in Austin,” said Chuck Cobern, President of Technology Pointe Inc., who will continue in that role. “Teople is the perfect fit. They have a strong team that has consistently delivered quality services to their client base. By combining the talent and resources of both companies, we will be able to more quickly take advantage of evolving technology trends to the benefit of our clients while providing new opportunities for our employees.”
“We are excited about the possibilities for the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Both companies have experienced accelerated growth over the past few years, and we are pushing to be the clear leader in Texas,” said Justin Bauer, CEO of Teople, who will continue as a partner and Director for the North Texas Region. “This combination allows us to broaden our service offerings such as Private Cloud computing, while continuing to deliver excellent customer service. Our clients are the reason for this merger. As our Dallas/Fort Worth clients are growing into Austin, and our Austin clients are growing into Dallas/Fort Worth, we are positioned to deliver our All Pointes Covered(tm) services to a much wider geographical area.
The combined entities now employ highly skilled professionals across three offices in Austin and Dallas providing managed services to hundreds of companies throughout Texas. The company will retain the Technology Pointe name and continue to operate out of the 2251 Double Creek Drive, Suite 201, Round Rock, Texas 78664 and 2695 Villa Creek Drive, Suite 282, Dallas, Texas 75234 locations.
