Quartet Service Acquires Strategic Telecom Advisors



    Professional Services Consulting Beefed Up at Quartet

    TORONTO, Nov. 22 /CNW/ - Quartet Service Inc., a leading information
technology outsourcing firm focused on the underserved mid-tier corporate
market in the Greater Toronto Area, announces the acquisition of Strategic
Telecom Advisors Inc., also known as the Outsourcing Lab.
    "This latest acquisition fits perfectly with our aggressive growth
strategy to fulfill clients IT needs whether big or small," says Robert
Bracey, Quartet's President and CEO. "Strategic Telecom's know-how in picking
and implementing the right telecom system for each client gives us yet another
arrow in our consulting division's quiver. We're targeting not only
traditionally underserved mid-tier firms with platinum service and products,
but also more large enterprises like the Greater Toronto Airport Authority."
    With more than 20 years experience serving organizations in the private
sector and non-profit areas such as education, manufacturing, financial
services and healthcare, Strategic Telecom Advisors is an expert in modeling
telecom infrastructure, benchmarking and outsourcing IT services, negotiating
vendor contracts, and much more. The purchase of STA comes a month after
integration of a large consulting team from NexInnovations Inc., the insolvent
IT infrastructure and services company, with Quartet's professional services
team.
    "The strengths of Strategic Telecom Advisors are many, but telecom
cost-benefit analysis is where it truly shines," says Piero Romani, Quartet's
vice-president of consulting solutions. "That is why STA services are in high
demand not only among business firms but also among non-profits with tight
budgets."
    STA recently project managed and deployed an advanced VoIP network
linking 20 locations of a not-for-profit home healthcare organization with
3,700 employees.
    Quartet is a Microsoft Gold Partner with infrastructure and information
worker specialization, Cisco Premier Partner in the VoIP category and
certified Blackberry Partner. It specializes in serving the growing call from
mid-tier companies for sophisticated technical services such as remote
management, disaster recovery and third-party IT infrastructure management.
