By Allan Swann

Vodafone Global Enterprise has announced that it has acquired technology and consultancy group BlueFish Communications, a move that will strengthen its unified communications portfolio.

The acquisition value was undisclosed, but the value of the company’s gross assets is £3.14m.

Vodafone says Bluefish will form the nucleus of a new Unified Communications and Collaboration unit which will focus on advising multinationals on mobile, fixed line and IT services, as well cloud adoption.

"Having the right information at the right time, in the right place, has never been more important to business success and this acquisition will enhance our ability to advise multinationals on how to maximise value from their communications," Vodafone Global Enterprise CEO Nick Jeffery said.

Bluefish has been recognised as one of the fastest growing technology companies in both the UK and Europe, winning the Sunday Times Tech Track 100 Fastest growing UK technology companies for three consecutive years running (2007- 2009). It has also appeared in Delloite’s Fast 50 UK’s fastest growing technology companies 2010, and in the Fast 500 fasting growing technology companies across the Europe, Middle East and Africa.

Founded in 2004 and headquartered in Reading, UK, Bluefish is a technology and professional services company, concentrating on consulting, resourcing and outsourcing.

Vodafone’s shares were this morning at £1.72, valuing the company at £86.61bn.
