BCM Acquiring SkySwitch for Expanded UCaaS Services

BCM One, backed by private equity firm Thompson Street Capital Partners, has acquired Tampa, Florida-based SkySwitch, a white-label UCaaS (Unified Communications as a Service) provider. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

This is M&A deal number eight that ChannelE2E has covered so far in 2021. See all technology M&A deals for 2021 and 2020 listed here. Moreover, M&A activity involving UCaaS companies remains steady.

The acquisition will allow BCM One to expand its UCaaS offerings and grow its channel audience reach, according to the company. The company’s network of resellers includes MSPs, VARs, ISPs, WISPs, interconnects and channel agents. BCM One says it will now be able to provide these retailers with white-label communications services to offer their customers.

The SkySwitch leadership, wholesale sales and support teams will become part of BCM One, the companies announced. This acquisition also expands BCM One’s geographic footprint to include a fifth office location in Tampa, Florida.
