1:HCC and InterNiche. What is happening?
HCC is proud to announce that it has acquired the networking business of
InterNiche Inc of Campbell California.
HCC has already transferred key technical and business staff to its office
in San Jose to ensure the continuation of technical support and sales for
InterNiche customers. Business will operate uninterrupted whilst we undertake
the exciting task of integrating the systems and products to create a new
embedded company with a strong set of embedded networking,
security and storage software.
2:How will this merger benefit engineers?
Previous customers of both companies will have access to a much richer set
of embedded technologies - HCC customers will now have access to a richer base
of embedded network applications and protocols. InterNiche customers will have
the option to integrate flash storage, USB and other similar technologies from
HCC. Overall developers will be able to get specialist networking & flash
storage technologies that can remove complexity, speed development and help
create safer, more secure, higher quality applications.
3:Where is the business located?
HCC has been located in Europe for 15 years with a small sales presence in
InterNiche has been located in California's Silicon Valley for 26 years.
Technical and sales staff from InterNiche are co-located with HCC staff,
creating a fully staffed technical and commercial base in San Jose.
This means that support will be provided where appropriate from both the
USA and Europe.
4:What will happen to existing software and support contracts?
HCC has agreed to assume responsibility for all existing contracts and software exactly as InterNiche has, customers should see no break in service or change in terms. In most cases the software will be supported by the same engineers as before. HCC has made a pledge to maintain all networking software previously distributed by InterNiche for as long as customers keep their Support Agreements active.
5:What things will change?
HCC is working on integrating InterNiche to its existing processes for sales
and support as it makes no sense to have duplicate web content or email functions.
Over the coming weeks we will merge websites, sales and support systems.
There will be appropriate re-directions in place for some time but customers
will be encouraged to migrate their links to HCC addresses as they become ready.
