iSolve Business Solutions, a Microsoft Gold Partner, has acquired Foster Melliar. iSolve’s Learning Solutions division has merged with Foster Melliar. Both companies are subsidiaries of the Morvest Group.
The newly formed ‘Foster Melliar Learning Solutions’, will provide end-to-end solutions within the IT sector, with a specific focus on skills development and knowledge transfer. The new company, a certified Microsoft Gold training partner, will also offer consulting across IT business processes, methodologies, assessments, governance and risk management.
Peter Clark, MD of Foster Melliar Learning Solutions says the merger of these two companies has resulted in a unique training and consulting partner that focuses on people as well as IT best practice.
“Bringing these two businesses together has strengthened our offering significantly. We now can provide an integrated portfolio of IT best practice processes, skills and knowledge solutions to enable organisations to deliver world-class information technology services.”
He says that the approach addresses all aspects of a business, offering a unique end-to-end training solution.
“We are also able to assist companies in complying with the skills development and socio-economic development elements as per the revised B-BBEE codes of good practice.”
Foster Melliar Learning Solutions has a combined pedigree of 35 years. The “new” combined team will operate from premises in Sunninghill and will be under the leadership of Peter Clark and Adrienne Steyn, who will head up the product management and marketing for the new company.
“It is widely accepted that IT is not just a department anymore, but much rather an integrated business imperative that is essential to deliver customer value. Foster Melliar has two decades of experience in IT business process governance and risk. This brings immense value to the new training company and addresses a very real requirement within South Africa,” says Steyn.
