FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE August 17, 2016
ST. ALBERT AND EDMONTON, ALBERTA — CompuVision Systems Inc. (“CompuVision”) and Savvia Inc. (“Savvia”) announced today the merger of their two companies, creating a full-stack IT company that delivers a comprehensive portfolio of managed IT, cloud computing, and technology advisory services to clients across North America. With a combined thirty years of service in the IT sector, these two companies bring together not only complementary expertise in technology strategy and operations, but a shared corporate culture driven by curiosity, teamwork and a drive to excel and to serve.
“Having jointly delivered on five major projects last year with great success, we realized that by bringing our companies together we wouldn’t simply be more of the same,” says Savvia CEO Lindsay Dodd, “Our combined strengths create a unique and powerful ability to serve our clients from boardroom to the field, from business goals and strategy to the day-to-day needs of frontline staff.”
“This strategic merger will allow the new firm to effectively enter deeper into the IT enterprise space and add significant value to our current combined customers,” says CompuVision CEO Ryan Vestby.
In the coming months, the combined company will be adopting the CompuVision name, while bringing an expanded and enhanced suite of services to all their clients. The new company’s head office will remain in the Metro Edmonton area, with 120 employees working out of offices in Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver, and Houston, Texas. In addition, continued growth has already created the need to recruit at least 12 additional people and the new company anticipates expanding to 135 employees by year’s end.
Founded in 2010, Savvia Inc. is a premium IT advisory company based in Edmonton, Alberta. It has quickly established a reputation for delivering insightful strategic guidance, successfully managing complex technology projects, and bringing businesses to the cloud. Savvia is also a dedicated corporate citizen, actively supporting such groups as the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation, the United Way of the Alberta Capital Region, Ronald McDonald House Northern Alberta, and the Edmonton International Street Performers Festival.
