As part of its growth strategy in Australia and New Zealand, Canon Business Services ANZ (CBS) announced the acquisition of WA-based Satalyst.
The acquisition supports CBS’s customers in the region and the business’ commitment to local innovation, by ensuring it continues to develop and invest in local products and services aligned to the future needs of businesses across the region.
Satalyst, a leading Microsoft cloud and security partner, primarily services customers in Western Australia, Queensland and South Australia. Sale capital is expected to accelerate the company’s expansion across Australia’s Eastern seaboard.
CBS CEO Luke Clark said, “Satalyst is an excellent strategic and technical fit that broadens our capabilities and supports our commitment to local innovation, businesses and services. The business shares our values, is aligned with our customer portfolio and has enjoyed significant growth during the past two years. We’re thrilled to have them join the CBS family, growing our application, data and AI capability while deepening our security offering.”
Todd Elliott, CEO, Satalyst said, “We’re delighted to join forces with CBS and look forward to playing our role in achieving future growth plans. We’ll continue to do what we do best in transforming business processes and productivity across Australia with Canon’s support. Collectively we’re a big, new local player in the market, and that’s exciting.”
Canon Business Services (CBS) ANZ is a newly unified brand merging the two specialist brands of Harbour IT and Converga into a single go to market offering. The transition completes a significant milestone in Canon’s journey to providing a unique business transformation offering for its customers and the market.
Dave Yoshida, Managing Director of Canon Australia, is confident the CBS model will continue to deliver for the wider business.
“This will be an exciting year of growth for Canon Business Services,” he said. “We are uniquely positioned to support our customers in their digital transformation journeys. Bringing together Canon’s leading reputation in business printing, with the combined services of CBS and Satalyst, I see strong synergies for our customers.
“Canon will continue to actively inspire and enable people to achieve more than they ever thought they could through products, services and solutions for businesses and consumers.”
