Dimension Data announced the acquisition of Xigo in February 2012, fast-tracking its Services strategy of becoming a fully-fledged Managed Communications Service Provider and enhancing its ability to deliver greater client value with an integrated cost optimization solution for communications spend analysis, sourcing, provisioning and invoice processing.

The demand for telecom and mobile expense management technologies is being driven by technology trends, including Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and cloud computing.  Employees have become increasingly mobile and depend on personal smartphones and tablets as the main device for staying connected to work while on-the-go. As a result of this influx of personal devices being used in the workplace, business are being challenged by mobile and fixed network costs that need to be managed in order to remain cost-efficient. Xigo provides unique mobile and telecom expense management services that help organizations manage their voice and data networks more cost-efficiently with a complete lifecycle of services.
