Proteus, the US arm of 2ergo, has taken the name of the UK based, AIM listed parent company. The move to 2ergo, a leading provider of convergent mobile communications, is part of the group's plans to scale the business globally.
Proteus officially becoming 2ergo Americas Inc. follows the group's acquisition of the US provider of mobile marketing products and solutions in 2006. This move strengthens 2ergo's position as a global brand, providing it with access to more global opportunities worldwide and enhancing key business areas, such as product management and development, marketing and customer support.
Chris Brassington, managing director of 2ergo Ltd, said: “Increasingly, we are working with more and more international brands. With our new global identity, we have a consistent customer focus, on a local and global scale, enabling us to deliver the highest levels of customer experience to our clients and partners.”
Guy Vidra, managing director of 2ergo Americas, commented: “It's great to be part of a well-respected business, with so much potential. We are now in a stronger position to take the world of mobile communications by storm.”
Since forming in 1999, 2ergo has earned a reputation for its technical expertise, which has enabled the group to team up with, and provide mobile products and solutions to some of the world's most respected brands. This has contributed to the group's significant growth, further demonstrated by its recently published mid-year financial results, reporting revenues up 13 per cent and pre-tax profit up by 20 per cent compared with the same period last year.
