Dixons Carphone to acquire price comparison service Simplifydigital

Jan 2, 2018

Dixons Carphone to acquire price comparison service Simplifydigital Electrical and telecom retailer Dixons Carphone has entered into agreement to acquire telecom-switching and price comparison service Simplifydigital for an undisclosed sum. Simplifydigital offers consumers an Ofcom-accredited price comparison and switching service for broadband, digital TV and fixed line telephone contracts. The deal, which is expected to be completed by March-end, will include Voltz energy-switching app. Voltz app helps track the market for the best energy prices and enables customers to switch providers on their mobile phone. Dixons Carphone CEO Seb James said: "People want great deals - and help in choosing and switching between a bewildering array of offers - and the combination of Simplifydigital and the unique reach we have through our shops and digital channels will make us the obvious place to go. "The acquisition also includes the Voltz energy switching tool, a hugely innovative and exciting app-based technology, which tracks the market for the best energy deals every day and allows customers to switch energy providers directly on their mobile at the tap of a single button. "Bringing Simplifydigital into the Dixons Carphone family will further solidify our position as the best place for customers to receive independent advice across all their technology, connectivity, media content and service needs and positions us well to take advantage of emerging trends in the market, such as quadplay. "It is also an important part of our wider plan of building a significant Services business, where Dixons Carphone becomes the trusted partner in our customers' homes for responsive, accessible, expert and affordable technology support." Simplifydigital CEO Charlie Ponsonby said: "We have grown rapidly to become the UK's largest TV, broadband and home phone switching service. In doing so we followed a path originally blazed by Carphone Warehouse - so I can't think of a business better suited to help take Simplifydigital to the next level than Dixons Carphone. We are excited to enter this next phase of growth together." Image: Dixons Carphone will buy telecom-switching service Simplifydigital. Photo: Courtesy of Dixons Carphone plc. Share:
