“We are very excited to announce the acquisition of Symphony Teleca’s TEM Business, which we expect will enhance Tangoe’s relationship with key channel partners and further expand our customer base globally.

Symphony Teleca was formed by the merger of Symphony Service Corp., a provider of product development services for Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), and Teleca, a supplier of product development services and solutions for mobile appliance Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and telecommunications operators. The merged company employed more than 6,100 personal working in 35 offices located across Asia, Australia, Europe and the Americas.
