Charter signs Letter of Intent to acquire Swift Harbour

Victoria BC:

Charter Telecom Inc. a leader in digital transformation and simplifying the business of IT is excited to announce the acquisition of Swift Harbour, an innovative, leading edge technology platform for the hospitality industry. The acquisition of Swift Harbour continues Charter’s commitment to add value to our customers businesses and guide them along their digital transformation journeys. Charter’s extensive data management solutions will integrate Swift Harbour’s unique software development capabilities, skills, and experience to further optimize our customers business through application development, delivering better analytics, and operational automation.

“Historically there has been a clear demarcation between Infrastructure and the Applications that run on it. Today, Infrastructure is increasingly becoming virtualized and programmatic, while simultaneously raising its awareness of Application demands, resulting in the eroding of the boundaries between these two domains. I am therefore very excited to have Swift Harbour joining the Charter family. We are looking forward to how this will lead to faster and more reliable service delivery for our customers, through increased use of automation, machine learning, data analytics, and improved end-user experiences.” –Ronnie Scott, Chief Technology Officer Charter

Together we can converge the best of their world and ours to deliver incredible value, innovation, and organizational agility to our shared customers. I am thrilled that Swift Harbour is joining the Charter family and can’t wait to get to work.” –James Copeland, Founder Swift Harbour
