Winxnet, a Microsoft partner and managed IT services provider for small and midsize businesses, has acquired the MSP division of Forza Technology Solutions.

The move comes shortly after the merger of Winxnet and K&R Network Solutions. That original deal helped the combined company to become a national provider of outsourced IT solutions, Winxnet has asserted.

As Winxnet points out, a growing number of SMBs are outsourcing their IT support as they struggle to keep up with the changing technology field. “IT Managed Services is the modern approach organizations leverage to access the latest technologies and the experts required to support them,” said Chris Claudio, Winxnet CEO. “Instead of relying completely on an internal IT team or paying for expertise on a time and material basis, MSPs allow you to outsource all or part of your IT support for a fixed monthly fee with guaranteed service levels.”

Winxnet says the acquisition of Forza’s Managed Services Division will add talented personnel to its team as it seeks to become a “one-stop shop for all IT needs including cybersecurity, cloud, and Office 365.” It will also expand the company’s footprint into Cleveland.

“Over the past 20 years, we have achieved industry-leading levels of customer satisfaction through the skills of our technical team, our core value to always do the right thing, our self-healing automation, and our operational maturity,” says Mike Williams, Winxnet president. “This acquisition demonstrates our commitment to build the best and most skilled team from coast to coast.”
