Alexander Open Systems, which grew from an IT and communications-services startup to become one of the region’s largest private companies, has been sold. ConvergeOne of Eagan, Minn., a global IT services provider announced today that it has acquired AOS, founded in 1992 by Gary Alexander, executive chairman.
“ConvergeOne’s investment in AOS enables us to better serve our clients and strategic partners now and in the future,” said Jon Groves, CEO of AOS. “As a part of ConvergeOne, AOS is well-positioned to leverage our combined managed services and solutions capabilities to become a clear market leader. Going forward, we remain highly-focused on our clients’ success.”
Serving more than 11,000 clients around the world, ConvergeOne has partnerships with more than 300 global industry leaders, including Avaya, Cisco, Genesys, IBM, and Microsoft to customize specific business outcomes. It’s been a busy month for the Minnesota company; less than three weeks ago, it announced a merger with Forum Merger Corp. in preparation to become eligible for listing on the NASDAQ exchange.
