MSDI and Rockland IT Solutions Merge To Form Congruity
Congruity is redefining the IT services industry by integrating global support and logistics, datacenter services, cloud services and industry-leading technologies into one comprehensive portfolio that can be executed at scale.
PEMBROKE, MASS. – MARCH 15, 2016 ––MSDI and Rockland IT Solutions today announced that they have merged to form Congruity – a new company that will deliver the platform for technology providers to enable worldwide, comprehensive support services through an automated and efficient business model.
Congruity’s senior management team will be comprised of existing executives from both companies. Congruity’s operations will be based in Pembroke, Mass. and Fall River, Mass. The company will remain privately held, and terms of the merger were not disclosed.
MSDI and Rockland IT have been IT segment service leaders in their own right. MSDI is known for its development and build-out of IT solutions, including cloud services, and Rockland IT Solutions brings substantial and superior IT hardware resources and enterprise support.
Congruity combines these core capabilities, and offers complete support services throughout the entire lifecycle of a company’s IT infrastructure. The company:
- Implements, installs, optimizes and services IT solutions from data creation and planning to disaster recovery
- Provides on-demand visibility and control
- Delivers same-day, on-site support in all 50 states and 91 countries worldwide
- Has a large team of systems and solutions architects who average over 20 years of experience in complex IT technologies and have/maintain expert-level certifications
- Architected and operates a state-of-the-art, SSAE 16 Type 2 Compliant datacenter
- Inventories an average of 500,000 server, data storage and networking parts
“As partners, MSDI [and] Rockland IT … came up with a way to deliver a broad scope of IT services, and fill in a real gap in the services marketplace,” said Dr. Katy Ring, research director of IT Services at 451 Research. “Because of this, technology providers and VARs sought them out for their counsel and realized tangible benefits as a result. The partnership between the companies proved successful and this merger is the logical next step. Congruity is very well positioned for success in the IT services marketplace.”
“One of the most important components of our success is a rock-solid service organization, and Congruity gives us that,” said Dave Herzan, director of hardware and software support at Scale Logic. “Their expertise is unmatched, and they can support pretty much any key component in the IT infrastructure. In addition, their scale enables quick response anywhere that it’s needed around the world. They’re essential to our success, and we look forward to a continued relationship.”
Going forward, Congruity will continue to operate much as both individual companies have been, but with a greater emphasis on providing more integrated services that deliver more value on a larger scale. The company is planning no major staffing changes; if anything, as post-merger synergies are realized and the business grows as anticipated, it expects to hire more staff and continue to scale appropriately.
Congruity is redefining IT support services, enabling any technology provider to globally deploy comprehensive support services efficiently and cost effectively. Congruity serves about 150 partners and offers end-user installation and implementation services, local on-site support, consulting and full data center hosting capabilities in 91 countries.
