St. John’s, Newfoundland – March 30, 2020 – Today, Vision33, Inc. (Vision33) announced the acquisition of silver-level SAP® channel partner, ProjectBlue Software Applications, Inc. (ProjectBlue), headquartered in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. This acquisition fits strategically with Vision33’s product and service offerings and strengthens Vision33’s long-term position as a leading partner for SAP® solutions for growing businesses across Canada. Headquartered in Eastern Canada, Vision33 maintains a strong presence in Canada with six (6) offices throughout St. John’s, Newfoundland; Montreal, Quebec; Toronto, Ontario; Edmonton and Calgary, Alberta; and Vancouver, British Columbia. This acquisition broadens Vision33’s geographic reach throughout all Atlantic Canada, including a new office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.
As a silver-level SAP® channel partner, ProjectBlue has an excellent reputation in Atlantic Canada as an SAP® Business One reseller, providing business software and professional services to growing businesses. The company boasts a satisfied and loyal client base and a team of highly skilled, certified Consultants that Vision33 can leverage from day one.
Mr. Blake Barkhouse, who served as CEO of ProjectBlue, will join Vision33 as Vice President of the Canada region and be based out of Vision33’s new office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. “A few months ago, we decided to join Vision33. Their unsurpassed SAP® expertise and customer-focused approach, along with TOTAL Care and The Saltbox Platform, give our customers access to a broader array of knowledge, skills, and technology to grow their businesses,” said Mr. Barkhouse. “I look forward to leading Vision33 Canada to build on current successes and expand the SAP® customer footprint throughout all of Canada.”
Continuing its successful and aggressive growth plan, Vision33’s decision to acquire ProjectBlue was simple: ProjectBlue has a long-standing reputation as a successful and focused SAP® Partner, providing a strong customer experience in focused industries. Having both been early partners in the Canadian SAP® channel nearly 20 years ago, Vision33 and ProjectBlue have maintained a collaborative and mutually respectful relationship at the executive and operational levels.
“I’m excited to welcome Blake Barkhouse and the ProjectBlue team to the Vision33 family,” said Tony Whalen, President of Vision33. “The recent acquisition of ProjectBlue is a natural extension of our growth strategy and continues to position us among the largest and most experienced SAP® resellers in Canada. We’re in a great position to offer new and existing customers in Canada a full range of SAP®-related solutions for growing businesses and service and support that’s second to none.”
“Many people wonder how Vision33 continues to experience substantial growth in a changing economic climate,” states Mr. Whalen. “The answer lies in our deep understanding and a fundamental belief in the power of technology and how it can positively affect business operations. We understand the challenges our SMB customers face and how important their software investments are. Our focus remains on helping them through this difficult time through our long-standing relationships and by providing related products, services, and support to help them get the most out of their technology investments. In this time of crisis, we see more and more customers that can quickly pivot, work remotely, and proactively reduce risks because they have full and consistent visibility into their data.”
