Intdev Internet Technologies, a business solutions specialist company, has acquired MegaWeb Internet Services in a bid to expand its South African service offering.

The acquisition, which comes into immediate effect, adds a complementary layer of services to the company’s current value offering plus a team of Internet connectivity specialist that will no doubt benefit both current and future customers and fortify support and service delivery.

The move follows the recent merger of Intdev and Liquid8 which saw the establishment of one entity called Intdev Internet Technologies and falls in line with the company’s strengthening position in the South African and African marketplaces.

MegaWeb, is a local success story. Set up in 1996, it has diversified its ISP offering to include software development, virtual private networks (VPN), domain administration, hosting and networking. The company has focused predominately on the SME marketplace.

“Our acquisition of MegaWeb was no doubt a strategic one as we believe the company and its team offers the additional skills and experience to enable us to grow our own business and offer services that differentiate Intdev Internet Technologies in a highly competitive marketplace,” says Christiaan Mienie, CEO of Intdev Internet Technologies.

“We are extremely excited to; for example, add Megaweb’s software development skills to our own team.  In a world where tailored, customised offerings have become increasingly important, MegaWeb’s expertise will enable us to enhance our offering to companies that require solutions that geared towards their specific business needs.”

Intdev Internet Technologies, with the acquisition of Megaweb, will offer services such as: dedicated servers; 3G; WiMAX; VoIP; ecommerce platforms; and CRM systems backed by an experienced 24×7 support team and bespoke software development skills.
