St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador (PRWEB) June 01, 2011
Atlantic DataSystems, Inc. (ADS) (http://www.atlanticdatasystems.com), the largest Sage Business Partner in Newfoundland and Labrador and a provider of enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM) software, announced today that it has acquired Fundy Computer Services, Inc. (FCS) (http://www.fcs.ca), an IT services provider with offices in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.
With this growth opportunity, ADS gains a strategic, complementary service offering and team of industry professionals. It will enable the company to further solidify its position as a top ERP provider in the small to midsized business space (SMB) in Eastern Canada - doubling the size of its Sage ERP Accpac practice, while significantly expanding its IT services offering. This combined synergy will enable ADS to provide a broader range of services to growing businesses, while increasing its exposure to more diverse end-to-end projects in the mid-market.
One of the most valuable components of the acquisition is FCS’s managed IT offering, iSupport. This solution allows SMBs to take advantage of monitored IT infrastructure and network services, traditionally reserved only for corporations with large, in-house IT departments. iSupport will continue to be an integral tool in the ADS portfolio, positioning the firm as the IT department for SMBs helping businesses leverage technology to achieve their competitive goals.
“Aligning with our strategic plans for growth, we are excited about this acquisition because of the wide range of solutions and services we will now be able to offer customers throughout Atlantic Canada and Ontario,” said Derek Sullivan, Vice President of ADS. “This acquisition will enable ADS to emerge as a prominent regional partner with a team of passionate experts throughout the region, who are committed to providing solutions tailored to our customers’ changing IT needs”.
“The ADS acquisition is an incredibly natural fit for both us and our customers after 30 years in the industry”, noted FCS President, David Duncan who now joins the ADS team as Manager, IT Services and iSupport. “We are excited to join forces with a successful company like ADS to further build our iSupport and IT services offering throughout the Atlantic region, while having the opportunity to develop our ERP practice. We could not think of a better company to join during this exciting growth transition”.
Since 2008, after being acquired by corporate parent zedIT Solutions (http://www.zeditsolutions.com), ADS has been executing on a strategic plan for growth that has seen significant expansion in Newfoundland and Labrador, and exploration of new markets. This latest acquisition positions the firm to further grow into the broader Canadian market as a specialist in ERP software, backed by a full service IT monitoring solution.
