MSP, Professional Services Merger: Bulletproof Solutions, SLI Global

Jeff Shaw

Bulletproof Solutions and SLI Global Solutions LLC have merged their IT services divisions. The combined company, united under the Bulletproof banner, has 120 employees with offices in Canada and the United States. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Bulletproof, an IBM, Microsoft, Dell Technologies, VMware and Cisco channel partner, specializes in outsourcing and managed services, IT professional services and learning services. SLI Global's services division, meanwhile, features Quality Assurance (QA) and Testing, Systems Modernization and Governance, Risk and Compliance expertise.

Bulletproof, by merging with SLI, expects to "improve the quality of client software systems, manage risk and get products to market quicker, reducing the overall cost of project implementation,"  the companies say.

Bulletproof Senior Leadership

Bulletproof's senior management team, led by CEO Steven Burns and COO Jeff Shaw, will be joined by SLI's VP of QA and Professional Services Gregory Doucette -- who will be responsible for the SLI divisions transferred in.

We've reached out to Bulletproof to determine if the SLI Global Solutions deal involves all of SLI or just a piece of that business.
