Grand & Toy And CompuCom
One Company To Meet All Your Technology Needs
(VAUGHAN, ON) July 4, 2018 - Grand & Toy is excited to announce we are taking our first steps towards a strategic transformation to having a broader services and solutions platform. We're expanding from one of Canada's largest B2B office product providers to now also offer full-fledged Technology Services. In October 2017, our parent company Office Depot acquired CompuCom, a market-leading provider of award-winning IT services, products, and solutions.
Having access to CompuCom's services will grant Grand & Toy a unique opportunity to provide end-to-end digital services to enable dynamic workplaces for companies of all sizes. Integrating and combining the world-class IT support services of CompuCom with Grand & Toy's established office solutions will provide businesses with a one-stop shop for all office and technology needs.
"This is an important milestone in Grand & Toy's ongoing journey to become a cutting-edge office solutions provider," said Stan Dabic, Vice President, Canada at Grand & Toy. "We understand that technology is at the core of what keeps a business running and by adding CompuCom's digital services to our existing offering, we can increase workplace productivity for our customers and set ourselves apart from the competition."
Since its inception in 1987, CompuCom has been consistently recognized as one of the leaders in managed workplace services. By combining forces, Grand & Toy and CompuCom's collective team will grow to approximately 2,000 associates in Canada with 500 licensed technicians, operating from 10 distribution facilities across the country.
"Grand & Toy's established brand and national customer base will help us develop greater awareness of our quality technology services and further our goal of expanding our offering to more markets," said Reem Gedeon, Senior Vice President of Sales, Canada at CompuCom. "By combining our complementary capabilities, we'll be able to provide a distinctive and convenient offering for Canadian businesses of all sizes."
Some of Grand & Toy's combined new services will include expert multi-device management, digital consulting, cloud migration services, deskside and remote service desk support, data recovery, IT security, migration, and analytics. These services will help Grand & Toy to be a resource that companies can count on to take care of any business challenge.
