Morganville-based cloud services provider Breakthrough Technology Group today said it acquired CelPro Associates of Manhattan, a purchase intended to boost BTG's mobile business.
Cost of the acquisition was not disclosed.
BTG CEO Jeff Kaplan said the acquisition enables BTG, which also provides information technology and telecommunications solutions, to become a "one-stop shop where organizations of all sizes can solve their mobility and wireless problems."
"Mobility is at the heart of the technical evolution, as mobile app development and deployment affects every corner of operations as part of an ongoing quest to improve productivity," Kaplan said in a statement.
CelPro, now the mobility division of BTG, will continue to operate from Manhattan. The mobile systems integrator and managed services provider has served business and government clients for 19 years, deploying more than 150,000 devices in North America.
CelPro will offer multiple services to BTG, including support for iPhone, Android, Blackberry and Microsoft systems.
BTG expects to add about 15 employees to staff as a result of this acquisition, atop the approximately 100 workers it employs now. Privately held BTG does not disclose revenue.
BTG said in addition to bring-your-own-device policies, where employees are permitted to bring their own laptops or mobile appliances to work, many businesses have rising demand for mobile device management solutions to support an increasingly remote work force.
Kaplan said as carriers like AT&T continue to build out 4G networks, businesses will need partners to deploy scalable and secure systems.
"BTG Mobility not only address the paradigm shift in business computing and communications, but is also a prescient examination of what the marketplace is calling for," Kaplan said.
