Charleston, SC – 29 April, 2022—eGroup Holding Company, LLC (eGroup), a leading IT solutions and managed services provider, announced that it has acquired Florida-based Enabling Technologies Corp (Enabling). The acquisition—which closed on April 29, 2022, will expand eGroup’s reach nationally in the U.S. and dramatically expand its Microsoft 365, Azure, Security & Compliance, and Business Application cloud services.
With decades of experience, and a comprehensive cloud and data center solutions portfolio, eGroup enhances and accelerates the digital transformation journey, delivering outstanding results for businesses across the nation. Founded in 1992 and based in Estero, FL, Enabling Technologies offers innovative Microsoft solutions and services around Microsoft 365, Azure, Security & Compliance, Business Applications, as well as Adoption & Change Management, and Managed Services. Merging the expertise of the two companies will bolster eGroup’s cloud capabilities and offer Enabling’s clients an expanded portfolio of solutions in the areas of data center, disaster recovery, backup, IT strategy and optimization, and digital infrastructure.
“As a multi-year, repeat winner of the prestigious Microsoft Partner of the Year award, Enabling Technologies has built an incredible reputation for the highest quality of service delivery with Microsoft 365 and Azure solutions” said Mike Carter, CEO of eGroup. “We’re thrilled to join forces with a premier team of business and technology professionals that execute with the same speed and certainty as we do. And in this ‘new world’ where talent and skillsets are the key enabler to organizational growth and acceleration, we recognize and anticipate the immediate value this expanded set of capabilities provides to our clients, in addition to the numerous opportunities for individual growth this union creates for our combined team members. It’s thrilling to bring this kind of ‘force multiplier’ to the market in the pursuit of excellence for our customers and team.”
“I am extremely thrilled and eager to join forces with Mike Carter and his outstanding team at eGroup. Our corporate culture, strategic vision, and uncompromised commitment to deliver service excellence for our clients now and in the future are in perfect alignment. By merging our two companies, we’re reinforcing our position to serve as a trusted cloud advisor by leveraging our strengths to enable our clients to achieve more from their investment in Microsoft Cloud technologies. Our alliance with eGroup creates a juggernaut in the Microsoft ecosystem and will pay major dividends for our highly regarded associates and global clients going forward. This new chapter in our 30-year history is a continuum of our quest to take our business to greater heights and new destinations.” Said Bill Vollerthum, President and CEO of Enabling.
