Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Compel Group has renamed two of its three divisions and added a separate IT consultancy arm to its organisation. The reseller and services company today launched Compelscope, which consists of more than 60 consultants drawn mostly from the Compel Group, according to a company statement. Services include IT advice to businesses, design consultancy and implementation. Compelscope is headed up by its newly appointed MD, Julian Morgan, formerly a director of consultancy AT Kearney, an EDS subsidiary. The business has been formed by Compel Group taking out its various consultancy parts and consolidating them into a separate division. It will include staff from acquired companies Info'Products and Abtex, as well as from its own call-centre business. The expected turnover of Compelsource is over £10 million, compared to the group’s £300 million. The name changes involve Compel plc, the reseller and services part of the group, which from today will be known as Compelsource. It will concentrate on providing managed services for network computing and growing its outsourced services. Hamilton Systems, Compel's subsidiary mid-range reseller, has been renamed Compelsolve. Compel's PC rental business, Hamilton Rentals, is keeping its name. Neville Davis, Compel Group chairman and CEO, said: "The group now comprises four substantial and clearly focused businesses, each offering distinct services to meet the strongly growing needs of large organisations." Compel is one of the few resellers which seems to be able to successfully integrate the companies it takes over. Last December it bought struggling reseller Info'Products for £1, taking on £10 million of its debts. The remainder of Info’Products has now been integrated into Compelsource. In 1997 it also acquired P&P Rentals, Computer Microrentals and Scottish reseller Abtex. The two rental companies were then merged into Hamilton Rentals. Abtex has also been integrated into Compelsource. ®
