Clients Benefit from Quartet's Enhanced Business Intelligence and Other
TORONTO, Oct. 15 /CNW/ - Quartet Service Inc., a leading information
technology outsourcing firm focused on the underserved mid-tier corporate
market in the Greater Toronto Area, welcomes the professional services team
from insolvent NexInnovations Inc., which was an IT infrastructure and
"We are delighted to have NexInnovations' consulting talent on board,"
said Robert Bracey, Quartet's President and CEO. "These high-caliber and
highly-skilled professionals are a strategic addition to Quartet and a natural
fit with our service-oriented, entrepreneurial culture. While at
NexInnovations the team worked with some of Canada's leading corporations on
very sophisticated IT projects like security services for wireless networks,
VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol), Sharepoint deployments, work flow
re-engineering and much more."
The consulting and integration services staff from NexInnovations' former
Mississauga headquarters chose to move to Quartet after the company filed for
protection under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act (CCAA). Another part
of NexInnovations' business - its hardware technology solutions unit with some
200 employees - was purchased last week by Toronto-based Softchoice Corp.
Quartet's Bracey said it was an easy decision when he was approached by
the nine-person NexInnovations consulting team. "These people wanted to stay
as a team as they transition to a new work environment. They love what they do
and, quite frankly, they were driving NexInnovations business with many
high-margin projects. Their expertise truly enhances our service offerings to
not only mid-tier clients but also larger enterprises."
Quartet was launched almost a decade ago to answer the growing call from
mid-tier companies for sophisticated technical services such as remote
management, disaster recovery and third-party IT infrastructure management.
Quartet is a Microsoft Gold Partner with infrastructure and information
worker specialization, Cisco Premier Partner in the VOIP category and
certified Blackberry Partner. Like NexInnovations, it has sophisticated
capabilities in the areas of technology strategy, architecture and operations,
but focuses primarily on a mid-sized client base.
Most Quartet clients are too big or too sophisticated for "Two Guys and a
Truck" IT services and support, but they are also too small to get adequate
service from a large IT supplier. Quartet fills the void and has invested
millions of dollars in top-end infrastructure, technology and quality customer
service. Its smallest customer has four employees and the largest 5,000. The
average Quartet client has 45 clients.
Being a privately-owned and operated company with strong profit-sharing
and employee support programs, Quartet prides itself on its competitive
compensation, career development and work-life balance policies. "The decision
of NexInnovations' consultants to join Quartet proves our ability to attract
top talent," said Mr. Bracey.
Quartet is an IT outsourcing firm specializing in small and mid-tier
companies in the GTA. It offers 35 a-la-carte services backed by sophisticated
IT infrastructure to support its clients with Internet, telephony and data
services. Quartet's services range from designing its clients' data and
telecommunications networks and acquiring equipment to migrating data and
