Incom and CNS join forces
Award-winning business communication solutions provider Incom Business Systems (Incom) and Complete Network Services (CNS) have joined forces to create a market-leading communications business with an enhanced nationwide presence across the private and public sectors.
Both businesses have experienced dramatic growth in recent years due to their success in attracting numerous high profile customers including Haribo, The Range superstores, StepChange, Bentley Motors, Kellogg’s, BLM and Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The combined group revenues will exceed £11 million in 2015.
The integrated business has grown its geographical reach, with 5 offices offering extensive nationwide coverage. Employing a team approaching 100, the firm has ambitious plans for growth, due to strong market conditions, excellent current trading and the increasing demand for Unified Communications (UC) and advanced Contact Centre solutions that incorporate multimedia, social media capabilities and workforce optimisation.
The venture sees Incom and CNS lead the way in the delivery of bespoke solutions for ShoreTel and Mitel platforms. Retaining the strength of both brands, the group will continue to invest heavily in the recruitment of high calibre individuals who are passionate about solutions-based communications that drive operational efficiencies and cost savings.

By joining forces with CNS, we can build on our success with enhanced professional expertise, proven best practices and an extremely strong leadership team that will help us to continue to deliver operational and service excellence. We are poised for significant and rapid growth and this milestone signals yet another exciting chapter in our history.”
