ORANGE, CA--(Marketwire - September 27, 2010) - Insight Integrated Systems (IIS), a division of Insight Investments LLC, the industry expert in technology solutions and financial engineering, today announced it has acquired Arizona-based CORE Technology Services, a provider that designs, implements and manages IT solutions. The acquisition is financially accretive from day one and accelerates IIS' strong momentum in the virtualization, cloud computing and managed services arenas, as it pushes the boundaries beyond technology acquisition and implementation to single-source delivery.

CORE Technology Services' consulting-focused offerings are an excellent complement to IIS' specialized value-added reseller business because companies today demand complete, cost- effective solutions that deliver great value, productivity and an aggressive return on investment. With CORE, IIS takes its product and service portfolio to the next level and sets new standards in the industry for storage, server, network and virtualization. 

"In today's IT environment, companies of all sizes are faced with scarce resources and often lack the technical expertise required to implement and manage integrated technology solutions," said Richard Heard, president, Insight Investments, LLC. "We have in the past, and are currently, successfully partnering with CORE to deliver customer solutions. It is evident that the combined companies will provide more effective service and solutions. Together, we are an exceptional provider that delivers total solutions backed by the best experts in the industry. Our global customers can depend on us to help them better run their businesses with optimal cost savings while gaining rapid, remarkable results." 

With CORE, IIS enhances and broadens its product offering and services portfolio with IT strategy, requirements identification, project management, networking and managed services. CORE also provides IIS with an immediate presence in staff augmentation, furthering IIS' strength as a single point of contact for the entire solution. As a result, IIS now offers the industry leading public and private cloud computing solutions for storage, server, network and virtualization. Existing and new customers spanning a variety of industries including healthcare, aerospace, consumer products and technology will immediately reap the benefits of fully managed solutions that range from financing and technology acquisition to strategic planning, implementation and ongoing support and services. The additional technology resources will also provide many advantages for existing vendor partners who rely on IIS to drive new business for their key products offerings. 

"CORE Technology Services was created by IT executives who have worked on the other side of the desk and recognize the need to help companies choose, implement and manage technology solutions that support companies' people and processes," said Ken Crabtree, president of CORE Technology Services. "With IIS' strengths in financing and implementing best-of-breed products through its top-tier partner network, we can now complete the circle with a true end-to-end portfolio."

The acquisition of CORE positions IIS to take full advantage of current market trends and meet the immediate demands of its growing customers. With CORE Technology Services, IIS adds more than 50 technical resources, state-of-the-art facilities and unique industry planning software to its business.
