AVI-SPL Announces Agreement To Acquire SKC Communications

AVI SPL Acquires SKC CommunicationsAVI-SPL announced a formal agreement to acquire SKC Communications, a Kansas City-based collaboration technology company, bringing together two companies focused on UCC.

SKC’s expertise in cloud voice services and unified communications-as-a-service (UCaaS) adds to AVI-SPL’s solutions portfolio that enables hybrid work strategies. SKC will bring voice communication solutions such as IP telephony and headsets to AVI-SPL’s UCC practices, as well as partnerships with leading UCaaS providers like Avaya.

“SKC has built deep relationships across its loyal customer base offering best-of-breed UCC enterprise enablement. We’re thrilled to partner with such an incredibly talented team and welcome them to AVI-SPL,” said John Zettel, CEO of AVI-SPL. “As a combined company, we’ll be able to offer more services over more geographies to all of our customers as we look to become the UCC services provider and employer of choice in the U.S. and around the world.”

SKC Communications established an online sales channel that is the world’s largest direct reseller of Poly headsets. AVI-SPL has a robust e-procurement channel, serving enterprise and higher education customers. Together, customers will have quick access to a more extensive product catalog powered by personalized service. The AVI-SPL acquisition of SKC enhances customer experience through deepened UCC voice expertise, stronger U.S. geographic presence and more robust e-commerce sales. It similarly enhances employee experience by adding new teammates and providing new opportunities for growth.

“As part of AVI-SPL, we’ll deliver greater value to customers at a greater scale with a broader and deeper UCC portfolio,” said Tray Vedock, chairman of SKC Communications. “We are excited about the future of the company and what it means for our customers as we continue to build on the foundations created by our incredible employees and partners over the last three decades.”
