West Midlands IT services company Acora has announced a strategic partnership with London-based Silxo, leaders in technology turnaround and transformation.

The companies said the strategic partnership is a “natural one”.

“This isn’t about us selling their services or vice-versa. It’s about building a partnership that allows whoever is leading a customer conversation to have a stronger solution using each other’s services where relevant,” said David Rabson, CEO at Acora.

“What’s clear is that Silxo are experts in their field and we are excited about how the partnership will evolve.”

Acora and Silxo have already delivered this partnership approach when working for a client where the planning, design and ongoing project management was successfully delivered between the two companies.

“It was this seamless joint delivery which provided us with a blueprint for replicating in the future,” said Marc Silvester, CEO at Silxo.

“Our expertise is in helping organisations overcome the challenges they face when undergoing technology transformation, and part of this is recommending and implementing best-of-breed technology tools. 

“Acora has great strength in project delivery, managed services and Microsoft accreditation which means by working with them we can deliver a tailored solution to meet the client’s exact requirements.”

From its service operations centres in Sussex and the West Midlands, Acora delivers managed services and Microsoft-centric business software and cloud solutions to mid-market companies who want to modernise their IT.

More than 200 companies trust Acora to take responsibility for part, or all, of their IT services, from the design and build of complex systems to the day-to-day management of services.
