Mr Brendan O'Kane, CEO and Managing Director of OtherLevels said: "This exciting acquisition is an important step towards the Company's goal of becoming the premier Australian supplier, and a global leader in digital marketing technology solutions. OtherLevels believes that the future go-tomarket model for the sale and distribution of marketing technology ("mar-tech") will be direct sales to a small number of large sophisticated enterprises, and a service led solution combining mar-tech and related services to the broader mid-market. A strategic and selective acquisition program, provides the opportunity to consolidate a fragmented sector, while securing further distribution channels for the OtherLevels platform."
"Acquiring XCOM is a first step that increases distribution capability into the mid-market and has the additional strategic benefit of strengthening OtherLevels presence in the travel and hospitality sector."
XCOM currently provides digital marketing automation solutions to leading clients including Tourism Queensland, Destination Gold Coast and Fiji Airways. XCOM has deep expertise in email and mobile messaging which is complimentary to the OtherLevels platform.
XCOM will enable OtherLevels to implement a number of cross marketing programs which along with cost savings in premises and back-office, will deliver revenue and cost synergies to OtherLevels.
The completion date for the acquisition is November 1st, 2018.
