Bell acquires two tech services companies

July 9, 2024
The company reports that the addition of Stratejm and CloudKettle Inc. will strengthen its cybersecurity and Salesforce capabilities.

On July 9, Bell announced that it has acquired two technical services companies: CloudKettle Inc., a professional services provider and Salesforce consulting partner, and Stratejm, a Security-as-a-Service solutions provider. These acquisitions, reports Bell, will advance the company’s ability to support the digital transformations of medium and large organizations through automation and cloud services.

Bell’s group president of business markets, customer experience & AI, John Watson, said in a press release that the acquisitions support the company’s key priority of supporting digital transformation and cloud strategy.

“Bell has become the trusted leader in delivering workflow automation and IT cybersecurity, supported by best-in-class acquisitions of entrepreneurs like Stratejm and CloudKettle,” said Watson. “We look forward to working with and expanding this expertise as we create an unparalleled service experience for our customers. We offer truly comprehensive solutions for all tech and cloud services powering businesses.”

These acquisitions follow Bell’s 2023 acquisition of end-to-end solutions provider FX Innovation. Both new organizations will report to Bell FX Innovation’s CEO, Guillaume Bazinet.

“Having joined Bell ourselves just a little over a year ago, I can attest to the exceptional strength of offerings created through this partnership,” said Bazinet in the press release. “Bell has invested millions of dollars in the advancement of our platform and capabilities, supporting the development of leading solutions for our customers, such as Service Bridge. Combined with the FX Innovation team’s expertise in cloud services, we will create robust, synergized offerings for Canadian enterprises.”
