ProSource Selects Continuum’s Managed Services Platform to Gain Rapid Entry into the SMB IT Managed Services Market9 May, 2013
CINCINNATI, OH – May 8, 2013 – To capitalize on the $400+ billion SMB IT market opportunity, ProSource, the tri-state leader in office technology and business solutions, today announced its selection of Continuum’s fully integrated managed services platform to provide outsourced IT software and service delivery. ProSource’s decision to standardize on Continuum was based on their assessment that Continuum is uniquely qualified to meet ProSource’s IT managed services needs. Following this decision, ProSource sought and acquired West Chester-based Infitech, an IT managed services provider (MSP) and highly successful Continuum partner.
This acquisition jumpstarts ProSource’s entry into the managed services market and enables ProSource and Infitech to meet the comprehensive office technology and IT service needs of small to medium-sized businesses through a single-source solution. Growth Achievement Partners (GAP), a leading provider of sales and operational consulting in the office technology marketplace, played a role in the business model development and will assist in the sales and operational integration of the combined companies.
“The rapidly converging office technology and managed services market presents a tremendous opportunity for dealers who understand that gaining first mover advantage means partnering with the right technology provider who can offer advanced software, deep expertise, and comprehensive services to drive market entry and accelerate growth,” said Brad Cates, president and CEO, ProSource. “Because of their commitment to and success with the Continuum platform, we came to the conclusion that Infitech gives us instant operational capabilities to build on our office technology strengths and become the clear leader in IT managed services serving the tri-state area.”
“Continuum has played a vital part in our growth and success to date,” said Jeffrey Loeb, president, Infitech. “We are excited to join the ProSource team and help them deliver a single-source solution that simplifies management operations, reduces costs and maximizes productivity for our clients.”
“Partnering with ProSource and Infitech is a perfect example of how combining the complementary strengths of three growth-oriented companies can lead to an accelerated market leadership position in IT managed services that is the envy of other office dealers,” said Michael Amiri, Director, Office Equipment Industry at Continuum. “We look forward to helping ProSource and Infitech drive even greater success as newer, non-traditional products and services, such as mobile and cloud-based offerings contribute more to their overall office technology strategy, revenue and profitability.”
