For some time, Total has been looking to launch a Cloud offering tailored to the Professional Services market and K-Cloud is the natural choice. Our investment in K-Cloud represents an opportunity to bring a proven end to end solution to our customers, whilst strengthening both existing businesses.
David, Malcolm and the team at K-Cloud have built an innovative and solid Cloud proposition in a rapidly expanding market. With our funding and support, they can continue to grow and further develop their capability as they evolve future Cloud products and services."
David Fazakerley, CEO of K-Cloud Ltd, added: "The new partnership between Total and K-Cloud brings together established telecoms excellence in the Legal and Professional Services sector with K-Cloud's Legal desktop and outsourced IT services. K-Cloud's current and future clients can look forward to enhanced offerings across the Virtual Desktop, Legal Applications, Telecoms, Networks and IT Services portfolio.

Duncan Hannigan, Head of Professional Services at Total Ltd also commented: "This is extremely positive news for Total and our own client base. We are committed to the sector in delivering a full portfolio of telecoms solutions, and Cloud services form a natural progression in enhancing our service and product set.
