Thomas Duryea doubles managed services, digital revenue

Thomas Duryea Consulting has reported "substantial growth" for the 2016 financial year, following Logicalis' $17 million takeover.

The consultancy firm doubled its digital sales growth across its entire business, which includes networking, collaboration, data centre projects and managed services.

National general manager Michael Chanter (pictured) pointed to managed services as the big winner for the year, growing 100 percent in the last quarter on top of 70 percent annualised growth.

“June has been our largest single record sales month ever, which is significant in terms of the Logicalis acquisition and the confidence customers have in the added value of the combined companies now being delivered,” said Chanter.

The biggest overlap from the Logicalis acquisition was in managed services, although Thomas Duryea gained added capability from Logicalis' offshore 24/7 service desk.

Chanter said the company now has the capability to go up against large systems integrators when competing for enterprise contracts.

The combined company is aiming to become a joint $120 million solutions provider, backed by Logicalis' South African parent company Datatec. Datatec also owns giant multinational distributor Westcon.

Last month, Logicalis Australia chief executive Basil Reilly revealed that 18 acquisition targets were considered before the Thomas Duryea deal came to fruition.

"It really came down to the brand and the reputation – TD had a great reputation with its customers around technology transformation and being really passionate about technology. They had a very good reputation around delivery," he said at an event celebrating the merger.
