Canon UK has announced a new strategic partnership with managed services provider AdEPT Technology, which will see the pair provide a host of IT channel services for UK businesses.

The collaboration will combine Canon’s portfolio of print, imaging, and software solutions with AdEPT’s managed IT services and technical knowledge, as well as give customers access to expertise around digital strategy, unified communications, as well as IT infrastructure management.

Announcing the move, Craig Leverington, Canon Business Services Director at Canon UK & Ireland, highlighted the increasing need to support the entire customer journey.

“With cloud adoption and digitisation now commonplace across almost every organisation and sector, it’s vital our customers are fully supported on their digital journey,” he said. “With many years’ experience working with large organisations to optimise IT infrastructure, we’re excited to have formed a partnership with AdEPT on this new venture.”

The offering will be delivered directly through this new alliance with AdEPT, a company that has grown to become one of the most prominent providers of managed IT services in the UK. Founded in 2003, the company now provides managed services and telecommunications solutions to more than 12,000 organisations across the UK.

The Tunbridge Wells-headquartered firm also tackles cloud, unified communications, connectivity, and voice solutions, working across a range of sectors.

In a company LinkedIn post, AdEPT said internet connectivity has “blurred the boundaries of technology” and companies are now looking to “unite their IT world under one umbrella MSP”.

“Technology systems have so many moving parts, and many organisations are seeking out counsel on how to rationalise, optimise and reduce complexity, and in turn reduce cost,” said Phil Race, CEO of AdEPT. “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Canon to offer its customers expert support, and the best technology solutions to drive success for the future.”

Canon IT Services, powered by AdEPT are available now for select Canon customers, with availability set to expand to the company’s wider customer base in the coming months.
