Australian small business IT specialist Calvert Technologies has expanded its capacity, especially in the real estate industry, after acquiring the assets of Adelaide-based technology company Vivid IT.

Calvert Technologies is an Adelaide-based Microsoft solutions company that services real estate agencies and networks as well as small business, corporate and government customers throughout Australia.

Founder and managing director Dean Calvert said that Vivid IT was a “great cultural fit” with his company.

“Vivid IT was a smaller version of our company, providing managed services and core products such as Office 365 and security, so there’s a great alignment,” the founder said.

“We decided to bring these two businesses together because collectively we can deliver better services to customers than we could separately.”

In particular, Mr Calvert said that Vivid IT’s strength in the real estate sector will extend the company’s existing portfolio of real estate agencies.

Set up in 2013, Vivid IT had a customer base throughout Adelaide, from several real estate agencies to brick-and-mortar retailers.

Calvert has also recruited Vivid IT founder Bobby Collier as an account manager.

As well as running his own company, Mr Collier has technology experience that includes positions in the defence industry with Raytheon and the Australian Air Warfare Destroyer Alliance.

Mr Collier said that his new role is a “perfect” fit for his skills.

“A lot of account managers have never run their own gig, so Vivid IT has equipped me to see things from both sides of the fence,” Mr Collier said.
