AppSmart has acquired Converged Network Services Group (CNSG), a technology consultancy from Charlotte, North Carolina. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

AppSmart runs a digital B2B marketplace of more than 200 technology providers. The addition of CNSG gives AppSmart’s portfolio a boost in the master-agent community – those companies at the top of the distribution food chain. CNSG joins two previously purchased master agent companies, Telegration and World Telecom Group (WTG).
