SINGAPORE (March 28, 2011) – Fredrik Marine IT Services Pte Ltd today announced that it has fully acquired the operational assets and clients of Tech Support Singapore Pte Ltd, a leading outsourced IT maintenance service provider in Singapore.
Post-acquisition, Tech Support Singapore will cease to exist as a registered corporate entity in Singapore and operate fully as a division of Fredrik Marine in providing outsourced ICT services for land-based offices. Additionally, Fredrik Marine assumes responsibility for providing service delivery to all existing technical service contracts of Tech Support Singapore. Since March 2011, Tech Support Singapore customers are invoiced by Fredrik Marine. Fredrik Marine will continue to market and sell Tech Support Singapore’s services to existing and new clients under the existing Tech Support Singapore brand name.
“In today’s world of the Singapore Small and Medium enterprise, more than ever, savvy business owners are recognizing the critical role technology plays in their organizations and the dangers of relying on amateurs deploying and managing what is essentially the heart of their business operational capability,” said Fredrik Marine Managing Director Nicholas Chan. “Every day we tirelessly work with these Captains of Enterprise to ensure their organization’s information and communication infrastructure run like clockwork securely without unexpected surprises.”
Chan concluded, “Our acquisition of the Tech Support Singapore assets improves our ability to offer our proven high-availability secure technical infrastructure and rapid response technical services to a land-based customer segment.”
The Tech Support Singapore brand will be further strengthened by the launch of the “on-demand Chief Technical Officer”, a new service offering to meet the growing sophistication and technological needs of Singapore Small and Medium enterprises by providing information management expertise from highly experienced individuals on-demand. With the benefit of the “on-demand Chief Technical Officer”, Singapore Small and Medium enterprises are able to elevate their use of infocommunications far above the common use of “digital typewriters” by providing their users with secure telecommuting capabilities, cloud storage facilities, web-based information management capabilities for all stakeholders and ensuring business continuity by a full range of business technology solutions.
In addition to offering the “on-demand Chief Technical Officer”, Fredrik Marine works with strategic partners to provide increased profitability and cost savings solutions in key business areas. These solutions include online branding and reputation management, intellectual property creation and management, business continuity management and physical security management, which help reduce operations costs while improving client and staff satisfaction.
