Norigen Communications Acquires Liberty Technology Services

[Toronto, CANADA] Norigen Communications has entered into an agreement to acquire Liberty Technology Services, a Canadian e-business consulting and integration services company.

The acquisition brings new capabilities to Norigen that complement the company's One source communications services to include e-business information management tools and implementation services.

Norigen's One source telecommunications services product includes a full array of communications services including high speed Internet, enterprise, and mobile as well as local and toll services using a simplified, one bill, one point-of-contact solution.

"Liberty's success in designing and building customized e-commerce and knowledge management solutions for some of Canada's top companies allows us to deliver end-to-end solutions from the carrier network to the desktop."

Liberty's existing customers include utility giants Enbridge Commercial Services and Union Gas, as well as Compaq Canada, Stuart Energy Systems, Transcontinental Publications, Dofasco, Canadian National, Kodak Canada, and various public sector customers including the Province of Ontario.

According to International Data Corp., e-consulting will be one of the hottest segments of IT over the next several years, with spending in the sector expanding in excess of 50 percent a year over the next four years.

Larry Baldachin, president and chief executive officer of Liberty Technology Services said that its opportunity resides in the fact that most organizations today simply don't have the internal resources to take advantage of the proliferation of rich internal corporate information services resulting from the rapid development of intranets, enterprise applications, and electronic business.

Its Enterprise Portal Services are designed to connect a company's customers, business partners, and employees to the information they require to create a "Web-based e-business value chain."
