Canon Canada investment accelerates Supra’s plan Canada-wide service delivery

By : Sanjeev Spolia

Supra ITS’ ambitions as an independent managed services provider have always been to expand across the country. The recent minority investment by Canon Canada will allow us to expand our existing relationship while developing innovative solutions that combine Canon’s world-class technologies with Supra’s nimble and flexible IT services model.

The investment in Supra by Canon further builds on an exclusive relationship to deliver managed information technology services across Canada, including business process services, systems integration, managed security, and corporate IT support. Since embarking on this relationship three years ago, we have grown our combined portfolios to serve a wide array of Canadian businesses across different industries. This expanded relationship enables Supra to accelerate our five-year plan to grow the organization into a truly national IT services provider and scale up our services to meet the needs of the enterprise market.

In turn, Canon will be able to grow its services portfolio to build out a broader, deeper suite of services that adds managed IT services to its already robust document management and workflow offerings, and seamlessly merge print and IT technologies so Canon’s customers have a single partner in the form of Supra ITS to support their end-to-end technology needs.

The investment by Canon will not mean any changes to the leadership, management, or day-to-day operations of Supra ITS. Canon is joining the Supra team as a minority partner with seats on the executive committee and board.

Supra’s focus will continue to be on providing small and medium-sized enterprises spanning multiple regions with managed security, business process services, and corporate IT support, with an emphasis on helping customers integrate document and workflow solutions with organizational IT. Over the past two years, the company has also pivoted to support new and existing customers with their efforts to support productive, secure remote work options and expects this to continue as Canadian businesses adapt to a hybrid office model while continuing with their digital transformation efforts.
