ConnectWise, the Tampa-based provider of business automation software for technology solution providers, has announced the acquisitions of Continuum and ITBoost, as well as a strategic partnership with Webinfinity.
The convergence of ConnectWise’s PSA, RMM, and CPQ platform with the service-enabled RMM, security and NOC/SOC and Help Desk from Continuum, IT documentation from ITBoost, and partner relationship management (PRM) from Webinfinity, is intended to substantially increase value to channel partners by connecting the partner upstream to its suppliers and downstream to its customers.
“The combination of Continuum and ConnectWise enables solution providers to transform their business leveraging artificial intelligence, autonomic remediation, and a global workforce when necessary providing our partners with infinite and elastic scale,” said Michael George, CEO of Continuum. “Our two organizations complement each other perfectly, and the journey Continuum has been on for the past eight years—including our acquisitions of R1Soft, CARVIR and BrightGauge—have led to this transformational merger.”
The combined platform represents an opportunity for ConnectWise to serve the much broader partner market by offering turn-key resources that help partners to sell service offerings immediately, and low startup costs that enable the creation of new practice areas or even new services startups.
