With this acquisition, Prime Care Technologies significantly expands its customer base and IT engineering and infrastructure.
Duluth, GA – April 11, 2011 – Prime Care Technologies, Inc. (PCT), a privately-owned and operated Duluth, GA-based national provider of cloud computing services, announced that it has completed the acquisition of Atlanta, GA-based CareCentric’s IT managed hosting services and assets, effective April 1, 2011. This transaction will create a true success story for PCT and CareCentric, their IT outsourcing customers, and their partners.
The combined IT assets give PCT the expanded capacity and resources to deliver exceptional cloud computing services and solutions. According to Jim Hoey, PCT’s President, CEO, and Founder, the acquisition is a natural fit. “From the beginning, PCT’s growth strategy has included not only organic growth through our direct marketing and sales efforts, strategic ISV partnerships, and the development of new product lines and affiliated businesses, such as Procurement Partners, LLC, and ProClaim Partners, LLC, but also acquisition where that makes sense. In this case, taking this next step in PCT’s growth makes great business sense.”
Same data center
Coincidently, both PCT’s and CareCentric’s primary hosting services are located in Quality Technology Services SAS 70 Type II Tier 3+ data center in Suwanee, GA. The Suwanee facility represents the latest in cutting-edge technology and construction with over 376,000 square feet of data center and office space in the north suburbs of Atlanta. The logistics of transitioning CareCentric’s assets, key IT staff, and customers over to PCT will be seamlessly executed, according to Gene Weiland, PCT’s Vice President of Technology Services. “Our team will ensure that its customers will experience continuity of services and support during this transition period.”
PCT and CareCentric have provided managed IT services and support for years to long term care, home health, and hospice services providers nationwide. “We would not have been in the position to take advantage of this opportunity without the hard work of each member of our PCT team. It’s through our experience and expertise in LTC and our solid reputation as a provider of IT services that CareCentric felt confident that this transaction would be a win-win for all parties involved,” said Mr. Hoey.
PCT assumed the CareCentric IT outsourcing operation and expects the transition to be transparent to all clients. “Over the next few weeks, we will be working with these new clients to introduce ourselves, answer any questions and welcome these new members to PCT’s customer family,” stated Keith Farley, PCT’s Vice President of Business Development.
