Parsippany, N.J., February 1, 2023 – Bluewave Technology Group, LLC (“Bluewave”), a strategic, high-growth technology advisory and lifecycle management company, today announced that it has acquired Single Point Communications Group, LLC (“SinglePoint”), a Louisville technology consulting and advisory agency. This transaction further expands the company’s footprint in Louisville following the announcement of Virtual Telecomm, making it the most significant I.T. advisory firm in the region. Bluewave now has nearly 140 employees and offices throughout the U.S., serving over 6,000 clients.
SinglePoint has a rich history in I.T. advisory, having been formed in 2016 when Soterra Capital, an investment and asset management firm, acquired Kentucky-based Single Point Solutions and 50% of Palladium Communications Group. To expand its footprint, SinglePoint acquired two leading I.T. agencies in 2021: Engaged Pro, based in Louisville, Kentucky, and Sky Technology Partners in Wayne, New Jersey. In 2022, the company acquired the remaining 50% of Palladium as well as Single Point Solutions of Central Kentucky, another I.T. agency based in Lexington, Kentucky. The combined entity operated under the Single Point Solutions brand, providing an enhanced single-point-of-contact experience to support their clients’ long-term I.T. solutions, sourcing, and service needs.
With deep I.T. specialization capabilities in the healthcare industry and a strong track record of delivering value and driving cost savings to customers in retail, logistics, banking, and finance segments, SinglePoint has built trusted partnerships with enterprise clients. SinglePoint has focused on optimizing critical infrastructure and applications through its expertise in building and executing high-value cloud computing, Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), and data center solutions for clients with mission-critical needs.
“Soterra is a unique, long-term focused, family-office-backed sponsor that had no interest in selling SinglePoint,” said Jeremy Carter, Managing Partner at Soterra. “Our expectations and plan were for SinglePoint to be a near-permanent hold, but as we came to understand Bluewave’s strategy and team, we realized we have a similar view of this market and how to best position for the future. By coming together with Bluewave, we decided that we could generate more value with lower risk for our team and owners and deliver a better experience to our customers. We are excited and eager to continue transforming this industry together.” Following this transaction, Soterra will continue to work with Bluewave and Columbia both to help build a world class business and to leverage its unique relationships and experience in the Channel to bring other companies into the Bluewave ecosystem.
“The Bluewave team shares our DNA of ensuring that customer outcomes are top of mind,” said Nic Jones, President of SinglePoint. “As we envisioned all of us as one team, it became apparent that our people and clients would greatly benefit by locking arms with Bluewave to lead customers through the I.T. procurement landscape moving forward. The added scale and expertise will bring significant value to clients as we look to disrupt and set a new standard for I.T. procurement and consulting.”
“SinglePoint was embracing a similar strategy as our company. And after four successful acquisitions, Soterra determined that joining forces with Bluewave to create a leading national I.T. advisory business was a better strategy than going it alone,” said Seth Penland, Founder and CEO of Bluewave. “With SinglePoint, we are strengthening our presence in Kentucky, New York, and New Jersey. And we are doubling down on our enterprise focus with investments in experienced technologists who are vital in enabling organizations to stay ahead in the fast-changing market.”
The acquisition of SinglePoint further enhances the level of support Bluewave delivers to clients while expanding its portfolio of I.T. advisory expertise and capabilities. It marks an essential milestone in the company’s aggressive growth plan with Columbia Capital, a sector-focused investment firm with investments in enterprise I.T., digital infrastructure, and mobility, to build a national technology advisory services provider. The financial terms of this transaction were not disclosed.
