PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Anexinet Corporation, a leading provider of digital business solutions, and a Mill Point Capital LLC portfolio company, today announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Light Networks. The acquisition will allow Anexinet to leverage its Artificial Intelligence (AI), process automation, and strong digital solutions alongside Light Networks’ Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS), Contact Center as a Service (CCaaS), and network/telecom solutions to elevate digital interactions for their customers, employees, and partners.
“The acquisition of Light Networks, following our acquisition of SereneIT in Atlanta, demonstrates Anexinet’s rapid growth trajectory and commitment to best-of-breed, innovative solutions for our clients,” said Brian Glahn, CEO, Anexinet. “The company’s engineering-led approach will expand Anexinet’s portfolio with unique voice, video, and collaboration capabilities, while also significantly adding depth to our networking abilities with Cisco engineering expertise.”
“Cisco is very excited about Anexinet’s acquisition of our Atlanta-based Premier Partner, Light Networks. We believe this growth strategy with Light Networks will generate substantial synergies as a Cisco market influencer adding fast-track value creation for our joint customers,” said John Moses, VP Sales, Cisco.
Light Networks’ specific customer experience and workplace modernization solutions are complementary to Anexinet’s core solutions. Founded in 2006 by Robby Paul and Bill Gregory, privately-held Light Networks is currently headquartered in Atlanta, GA, and will expand Anexinet’s footprint in the U.S. Southeast.
“Anexinet’s methodology and client-first culture is perfectly aligned with our culture, making them an ideal partner,” said Robby Paul, co-Founder, Light Networks. “We are excited to combine our contact center and collaboration expertise with Anexinet’s digital transformation and automation/AI capabilities. We believe the combined practices will continue to improve how our clients can effectively engage with their customers, to ultimately drive growth and optimize costs.”
“Light Networks builds contact centers; Anexinet provides broader digital transformation solutions,” said Michael Perdue, Anexinet Chairman of the Board and Mill Point Capital Executive Partner. “This makes an ideal union, strengthened by the fact that both companies have teams of client-focused technology leaders with a history of surpassing client expectations and loyalty.”
