BCN Group, a Manchester-based managed IT, cloud and digital transformation specialist, has acquired application and analytics business Public View for an undisclosed sum.
It is part of the group’s expansion strategy into the healthcare sector, following the acquisition of analytics, data and automation specialist Cloud2 last year.
Public View, a cloud application company, provides performance monitoring and benchmarking services to the NHS and collates data from public data sources. It then automatically combines them into a single portal for NHS leaders, where subscribers can identify areas that are high performing, progressing well or where there is a cause for concern.
BCN Group also has offices in Leeds, Bradford and Runcorn.
Rob Davies (pictured), CEO of BCN Group, said: “The acquisition of Public View allows us to provide existing and new clients with a complete and comprehensive suite of cloud based analytics services delivered by skilled and experienced experts.
“It not only complements and strengthens our existing market position offering but takes our combined capability to the next level and further establishes BCN as a key service provider across the public sector and healthcare arena.
“I am delighted to welcome Public View to the BCN family, and to work alongside its incredible team as we seamlessly merge its products, services and processes into the wider BCN Group.”
Tom Ridgeway, Founder at Public View, added: “I’m incredibly excited about the acquisition and what it will mean to the Public View clients as we bring the combined capability of the two businesses together to continue to deliver exceptional services and outcomes to our clients.”
