Simon Systems, a leader in mid to large mainframe sales, has acquired International Technical Support (ITS), a company specializing in supporting and monitoring mainframe systems.

The purchase of ITS, based in the UK, further increases Simon System’s market share in the mainframe sales and servicing space.  The acquisition also improves and strengthens the presence of RSF Services Worldwide, benefitting many companies that rely on the service.

“The merger of Simon Systems and ITS will benefit customers in a number of ways, including additional technical resources, continued research and development for monitoring new generations of mainframes along with other mid to large systems platforms, and greater access to repair parts,” said David Christensen, President of Simon Systems.

“Simon Systems and ITS have had a long-standing relationship. The ITS addition was a perfect fit.  We will continue to provide all the aspects of the ITS Support, with the additional resources that Simon Systems has to offer.”
