Cloud Sherpas Acquires Omnetic
Google Apps reseller Cloud Sherpas today said it has acquired Google solution provider Omnetic for an undisclosed sum.
By acquiring Omnetic, Cloud Sherpas says it will have the largest concentration of Google Apps Certified Deployment Specialists outside of Google. Cloud Sherpas says it has migrated 800,000 users to Google Apps, while Omnetic has moved 100,000.
The move by Atlanta-based Cloud Sherpas to acquire Omnetic will give it a West Coast presence, since Omnetic is based in San Francisco. Besides its Atlanta headquarters, Cloud Sherpas has offices in Austin, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.
"The addition of Omnetic significantly enhances our presence on the West Coast," said Cloud Sherpas CEO Jon Hallett in a statement. "With an office and a highly trained staff in San Francisco, we can bolster relationships with regional clients and prospects, and with Google itself, which will be critical as Google introduces new products and programs for customers and partners."
Cloud Sherpas also pointed to Omnetic's customer base, which includes National Geographic, Dr. Martens, Design Within Reach, Mazda Raceway and the Schumacher Group.
In addition to providing integration services, Cloud Sherpas offers the SherpaTools IT admin tool for Google Apps, which the company said is installed on 16,000 domains accounting for 3 million users.
