Seattle-based services company Aris has acquired the UK's Barefoot Computer Training to triple the number of its UK facilities.
The US consultancy and training firm, which specialises in educating people to use Microsoft software, bought Oxford Computer Group in February last year and its managing director, Hugh Simpson-Wells, will take over the UK operation when it is merged with Barefoot.
Aris already had an undisclosed share in Barefoot but took over the whole company in return for Aris stock worth $7.8 million. The deal means Aris will expand from 17 London-based classrooms to 26 and will boost the training it offers on Microsoft packages, according to Aris chief executive and president Paul Song.
"The addition of Barefoot gives our UK operations considerable economies of scale," he said.
