STRATACACHE, a leading provider of scalable, high-performance digital signage, media distribution, and enterprise video acceleration technologies, today announced the acquisition of supermajority control of Scala Inc.
Combining the largest U.S. digital signage company with the largest international digital signage company will provide significant operational synergies and allow both firms to deliver enhanced solutions and services to customers across the globe. STRATACACHE’s strong balance sheet and large-scale operations will enhance Scala’s competitive edge – and Scala’s global channels and significant reseller and partner network will fuel STRATACACHE’s growing business outside of the United States.
"STRATACACHE has great admiration for the Scala platform, the Scala team, the Scala Reseller Channel and the great history of the company,” says Chris Riegel, CEO of STRATACACHE. “With the STRATACACHE acquisition of Scala, we believe that we can help Scala and its partner channel realize the runaway success that STRATACACHE has experienced in the digital signage industry, while significantly improving the depth and breadth of products and services for Scala customers and channel partners worldwide."
The acquisition brings significant operational scale and cost advantages to Scala and will directly benefit the Scala dealer channel through STRATACACHE’s commitment to additional channel investment, resources and solutions that will broaden the scope of offerings for the reseller channel.
Together, the two companies will increase the value for customers by delivering richer and more comprehensive solutions to engage customer experiences across multiple digital platforms all around the world.
