Alabama’s DataPerk makes third acquisition in five years, eyes continued growth

The Alabama-based technology solutions company DataPerk has made its third acquisition in five years.

The company has acquired ByteSize, one of its competitors in the local market, according to a release from the company.

Founded in 2001 by Troy Wallwork, DataPerk offers a wide range of services, including web design and hosting, network design and cabling, and hardware and software support.

ByteSize was founded by Jerry Feld in the Birmingham area in 1985.

Wallwork envisions his company delivering the same quality service to its new customer base.

“Our goal was is to continue the legacy of customer service that Jerry worked so diligently to maintain for over 30 years,” he said.

Wallwork told Yellowhammer News that while his company does not have a particular vertical, it does have a significant customer base in the legal, healthcare and manufacturing sectors.

DataPerk can customize a plan for businesses seeking to build or upgrade their technology infrastructure, Wallwork noted.

“We always recommend a thorough analysis and comprehensive plan and roadmap,” he explained. “Even if you can’t afford to implement all aspects at once, an understanding of the critical aspects such as connectivity and security and how they fit into your overall plan is crucial.”

As an expert in the industry, Wallwork also sees the urgency in Alabama’s effort to expand access to high-speed internet.

“I’ve long been a proponent of universal access to broadband,” he stated. “Now with Covid-19 and remote learning it has become even more important. Having the infrastructure in place to support both the young minds that become future leaders and the opportunity to create jobs in those areas is crucial for our future. I feel it is important to remove barriers such as limited connectivity to level the playing field.”

This is the third acquisition for DataPerk in the past five years. The company also acquired IT Express, which focused on providing computer consulting services for many law firms in Birmingham and Mobile, as well as VentureNet in Birmingham.

DataPerk maintains offices in Birmingham and Mobile.
