MSP Merger: CompuVision, Savvia Combine Forces
> Updated Aug. 19, 11:15 a.m. ET: CEOs from both companies explain the merger to ChannelE2E.
Founded in 2010, Savvia is an IT advisory firm based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. In recent years the company has emphasized Office 365 migrations.
Founded around 1992, CompuVision is an MSP headquartered in St. Albert, Alberta. The companies “bring together not only complementary expertise in technology strategy and operations, but a shared corporate culture driven by curiosity, teamwork and a drive to excel and to serve,” according to a statement from both firms.
At some point within the next few months, the company will leverage CompuVision as its core brand. Together, the combined companies expect to have about 135 employees by years end — including staff in Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver and Houston, Texas.
ChannelE2E has reached out to CompuVision and Savvia for more details about the deal. We will update this article if/when those details emerge.
