Major Acquisition: MS Solutions Becomes a Quebec Leader in Cloud Computing Solutions

QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - June 21, 2016) - MS Solutions, a traditional and cloud computing solutions provider for organizations, has increased its impact and effectiveness by acquiring two major players in the industry, ExpertCloud and Teklach. In doing so, the company has become one of the largest providers of cloud and IT solutions for events in the province.

Completed on 1 June, the transaction has also enabled MS Solutions to double its client base in the field of cloud computing solutions. The company can now rely on a team of more than 40 experts to serve its customers in all regions of Quebec. Moreover, the ExpertCloud employees based in Saint-George-de-Beauce will stay there in order to continue to efficiently address this market's many needs.

"In acquiring ExpertCloud, we now have access to an extremely efficient technology infrastructure and business process, but more importantly we have a team of highly qualified professionals with very valuable expertise. We are thus building on our know-how in cloud computing for our fast-growing client base," MS Solutions president Maxime Dion explains.

Thanks to the acquisition, MS Solutions now has at its disposal an additional data centre to securely host its servers, for a total of two in Quebec City and one in Montreal. The Montreal centre has been certified by the PCI Security Standards Council.

"We have increased our hosting capacity for all our current and future customers. We now guarantee more than ever before that they can count on continuous operations thanks to various redundant systems," Mr. Dion asserts.

A LEADER IN IT SERVICES FOR EVENTS

With the Red Bull Crashed Ice, Défi Beauceron, Ski Tour Canada 2016, Snowboard Jamboree 2016 and Transat Québec-Saint-Malo, Teklach has gained an excellent track record over the years by successfully providing wireless computer communications services at these key events.

"Teklach has in-depth knowledge of the various wireless technologies used for large-scale outdoor events. The strength of its technology enables event promoters and sponsors to fully benefit from the opportunities offered by the facilities," Maxime Dion explains.

Since MS Solutions was already in charge of the IT aspects of such major events as the Memorial Cup and National Bank Cup, "the company has now become the biggest provider of event-related IT services in Quebec City," Mr. Dion is pleased to point out.

"These large-scale events," Mr. Dion adds, "first and foremost need a reliable network for the organization's staff and members, as well as for the general public, who are increasingly demanding in this regard."

"An event with a sound network is more efficient and makes life easier for the organization, but it also enables visitors to share more information on social media. In 2016, a good wireless network is no longer a luxury. It is an essential tool for promoting events both here and around the world!" Maxime Dion says in conclusion.
