Following its purchase of Onelan in June 2018, Uniguest has now extended its portfolio with the acquisition of Tripleplay.
According to the company, with ever-increasing demands to deliver live TV and video as part of a digital signage solution across key verticals, combining the respective strengths of the two organisations ensures customers can confidently access best-in-class IPTV and digital signage as a complete solution from a single global organisation to meet their customers’ specific requirements.
The acquisition presents the strategic opportunity for Uniguest to market Tripleplay’s IPTV and interactive portal to its own hospitality and senior living clients, while extending its reach with a complementary partner base for products; specifically, in the stadium, large enterprise and banking verticals.
The combined Tripleplay and Onelan organisation will be led by Steve Rickless, Tripleplay’s CEO, with the support of the Tripleplay and Onelan executive teams. Both comapnies will continue to operate from their respective offices with their current team members.
“This acquisition is a game changer for Tripleplay and will bring significant advantages to our valued customers and partners,” Rickless said. “Our market-leading solutions combined with the Onelan product set will be one of the most powerful combinations available in today’s market, and the partnership will allow us to deliver innovation and enhanced service. Backed by the strength of Uniguest, this gives us the opportunity to deliver our aggressive strategic vision for the business.”
Hugh Coghill-Smith, Onelan CCO, added: “As our clients’ needs continue to expand, we are very excited to combine the Tripleplay and Onelan solutions to provide additional value. This presents a considerable opportunity for our customers, partners and employees.”
“With the successful acquisition and integration of the Onelan business into our portfolio in 2018, we reviewed a number of providers who could offer complementary solutions which aligned with our core strategy to deliver digital engagement to the industries we operate in,” Jeff Hiscox, Uniguest CEO, commented. “Tripleplay was by far the best solution in the market and fit this profile perfectly; we’re delighted to bring them under the Uniguest umbrella. By pairing Tripleplay with Onelan, we are creating a powerhouse for the AV industry and are excited to start this journey.”
