InSource Acquires Beck Strategies: ServiceNow Partner Backgrounds

In addition to ServiceNow know-how and staffing resources, InSource has expertise in the Snowflake data management and Okta identity management markets. Also, InSource has its own software -- called StandardizedPro -- for asset visibility and management.

In a prepared statement about the deal, InSource CEO Mark Lafond said:

“What we have seen from our clients is a broadening need within the ServiceNow ecosystem where one can deliver on multiple workflow requirements throughout an organization. We feel that BECK Strategies is a leader in two of the fastest growing segments on the ServiceNow platform which is Security Operations and Integrated Risk Management. BECK Strategies has experience providing Managed Services to clients and we see this as a growth area for both ServiceNow license and implementation sales. This level of expertise and experience will be key drivers in our double-digit growth plan for this year and beyond.”

“For our clients, this acquisition allows us to present to them additional enterprise expertise in business and asset management, as well as advisory and support services. Also, the colleague-first and customer-centric cultures of InSource and BECK Strategies are totally compatible with each other which should provide great benefits to our employees and customers.”
