Britain's biggest reseller Computacenter has bought a minority stake in a Basingstoke-based cloud specialist.

Computacenter is paying £500,000 for shares in ICS Solutions Limited, a Microsoft Gold Partner and collaboration and cloud specialist.

In a statement to the London Stock Exchange Computacenter said the cash investment would help it "pursue wider opportunities in the deployment of its Microsoft Collaboration service and solution offerings".

ICS was founded in 1994 and has had Gold Partner badging for over 15 years. It is also known for running the Dream Team portal - a place to find MS contractors and permies. ®
