On Wednesday, Xerox Holdings Corporation revealed that it had acquired Powerland, a leading IT services company in Canada. Xerox’s IT services portfolio in North America, which includes cloud, cyber security, end-user computing, and managed services, has been improved by the acquisition.
Powerland provides a wide range of technological solutions and services to customers across Canada, including cloud, hybrid cloud, cyber security, and end-user computing solutions depending on unique company needs. Nvidia Partner of the Year, Dell Marketing Partner of the Year North America, HPE Service Partner of the Year, and Tech Data Circle of Excellence are among Powerland’s latest industry honors.
“Today, the ability to quickly adapt to change and remain competitive requires a strong IT partner. Combining the talented teams of Powerland and Xerox IT Services provides a greater value proposition for customers with support, information security expertise, and technology solutions from major IT manufacturers. We manage our customers’ technology so they can manage their business,”said Martin Bachant, president, Xerox Canada.
SMBs will expand their investments in essential IT solutions such as cloud infrastructure, managed IT services, collaboration solutions, and cyber security, according to recent research. With the addition of Powerland, Xerox will be able to expand its reach in North America and provide more value to clients across the country.
“We are thrilled to join a world-class innovator like Xerox and look forward to enhancing business outcomes and technology transformations for our clients across Canada,”said Curtis Dery, executive vice president, Powerland.
Xerox’s aim to grow its IT services sector is demonstrated by this acquisition. In March 2020, Xerox bought both ITEC Connect, a pioneer in IT services in the United Kingdom and Digitex, a provider of IT services in Canada. Competitive Computing (C2), a Vermont-based IT services firm, was bought by Xerox in October 2021. According to Techaisle, the global IT services business is worth more than $680 billion every year.
