Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 02, 2012
Global Enterprise Technologies, Inc. (GET) and Netrix, LLC announced last week they have signed an agreement that outlines a transaction required to successfully merge the two companies.
The merger of these two Cisco partners brings together Netrix’s proven background in data center, virtualization and cloud-based solutions, with GET’s extensive collaboration and networking capabilities. By combining these strengths, the winner in this merger is the client. The GET-Netrix combination aligns with Cisco’s vision to provide clients with a complete end-to-end solution, which allows its clients to work from anywhere, at anytime and on any device or computing platform.
The combined organization will be a Gold Certified Partner with Advanced Borderless Network Architecture Specialization, Advanced Collaboration Architecture Specialization, and Advanced Data Center Architecture Specialization. Other authorizations include Webex, IronPort, TelePresence and ATP TelePresence Video Express.
Founded in 1998, Global Enterprise Technologies (GET) is an information technology-engineering firm that specializes in the design, implementation, and support of Cisco’s portfolio of enterprise solutions, as well as the management and monitoring of its clients’ complex infrastructures from the 24x7x365 Network Operations Center.

“The way our clients are working and collaborating today is different than 5-10 years ago. Customers want a partner that can look at their business challenges, understand how they leverage technology to run their business, provide insight and then execute on a technology strategy to help them turn IT from a cost center to a profit center. By combining the strengths of GET with the strengths of Netrix, I am confident we have the depth and experience to help our clients transition to the new economy” said Mike Gleason, Managing Director of GET.
Tony Donato, a managing partner at Netrix, added, “We’ve known and worked with the management teams at GET for more than a decade. We’ve had intimate knowledge of their business and leadership. In any strategic merger culture is number one. There is zero doubt about our cultural fit. The new organization is a product of complimentary environments. Netrix and GET have now doubled the engineering capabilities, service offerings and the infrastructure to expand our market share”
