The move will net the company 33 new staff in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, increasing the company's presence on the east coast of Australia. ASG's head offices are in Perth but it has national operations.

The acquisition will enable ASG to provide consulting services in addition to its traditional managed services, according to ASG chief information officer Geoff Lewis.

"The acquisition of Dowling positions ASG uniquely within the Australian managed services marketplace by bringing together the senior management consulting capability of Dowling with the industry recognised capability of ASG's managed services platform," Lewis said in a statement.

Dowling's clients include Australia Post, National Australia Bank, Victoria Police, Bluescope Steel, Pacific Brands, CorpTech, Melbourne University, Adelaide University, StarTrack Express, Visy, ANSTO, Energy Australia, Nyrstar, Intact and SA Health.

ASG is currently looking at "a number of other acquisition opportunities", according to Lewis.

It has not been the only Australian IT services company on the acquisition path. SMS Management and Technology recently shelled out $6.7 million for an Oracle specialist.
