Following the merger all account management, customer service and support and development arrangements for the product suites of both businesses will be fully maintained. Through the merger the combined business will be focused on delivering increasing value to our clients and achieving continued business growth.

PelicanCorp is continuing its strategic development plan aimed at expanding its product range and opening up to new geographic markets through both a strong organic growth approach and the acquisition of TelDig.
