WBM Office Systems, a Top 100 solution provider announced Wednesday its acquisition of Agilisys, an F5 solutions and infrastructure management services provider in western Canada.
The Agilisys team will “continue to operate as usual, delivering on the many projects and ongoing engagements currently underway,” WBM said in a statement. The latter ranked 29th on CDN’s Top 100 Solution Providers list with revenues of between $50 to $75 million in 2014. It rose one spot from the previous year.
According to WBM, the acquisition is a response to the growing need for security in IT and managed services.
Under the terms of the agreement, all Agilisys staff will join WBM as part of the WBM Managed IT Services team, working out of the company’s Calgary Operations Center. WBM has operation centres in cities including Saskatoon, Calgary, and Regina, and will grow to 220 staff members with the acquisition.
“Today we get to welcome some fantastic people into the WBM family. They share the values that we admire so much, and it’s probably not a
coincidence that we already find ourselves working with many of the same great customers,” said Brett Bailey, Vice President with WBM in a statement.
