MONTRÉAL—Canadian communications company Bell announced that it has acquired technical services companies Stratejm and CloudKettle, adding professional and managed services expertise in cybersecurity and Salesforce to its existing capabilities.

These acquisitions will advance Bell's strategy to be a leader in supporting medium and large organizations' digital transformations and automation through cloud services. Combined with Bell's pure fiber and 5G networks, enterprises will benefit from an exceptional and seamless AI-powered end-to-end customer experience, the company noted.

Bell"Supporting enterprises with their digital transformation and cloud strategy is our core priority at Bell Business Markets,” said John Watson, group president, business markets, customer experience & AI, Bell. “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. 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."

Stratejm, based in Mississauga, Ontario, and servicing Canadian and international customers, leverages AI through its end-to-end Security-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions, real-time threat detection and response, and streamlining incident management processes, all supported by a vendor independent SOC2 Security Operation Center.

Stratejm has a long history of building innovative and customer-centric solutions, making it a trusted partner for organizations seeking industry-leading managed security solutions, Bell said.

"Joining forces with Bell marks a significant milestone for Stratejm,” noted John Menezes, president and CEO, Stratejm. “This acquisition not only amplifies our capabilities but also allows us to leverage Bell's extensive resources and reach.  Together, we are poised to deliver unparalleled cybersecurity solutions, and ensure our clients receive the highest level of protection and service. This is a powerful synergy that will enhance the value we bring to our customers and the market at large."

CloudKettle is a professional services provider based in Halifax, Nova Scotia operating within Canada and the U.S. As a Salesforce consulting partner, the company brings deep expertise in Salesforce enterprise implementation, including integration of the platform leading data and AI capabilities through Salesforce Data Cloud, Industry Clouds, Marketing Cloud, Einstein 1, and Tableau.

"CloudKettle has a long history of working with Bell and we are excited to join forces,” added Greg Poirier, president, CloudKettle. “We are proud of the strength of our team's talent and expertise and the value we have brought to our customers. We are looking forward to continuing to deliver quality Salesforce and revenue operations services with even greater impact with Bell's scale and reach behind us."

These two acquisitions complement the 2023 acquisition of FX Innovation, a provider of end-to-end multi-cloud services, IT workflow automation solutions and cloud consulting services. FX Innovation supports the integration of applications within business environments in Canada and internationally.

In addition, these acquisitions will enrich the range of capabilities available for customers to manage their public and hybrid cloud environments with the world's leading cloud providers. Customers now benefit from platform-centric expertise to drive productivity, resilience and security outcomes through deeply integrated IT systems and processes.

Both organizations will join BCE's group of companies, reporting to Guillaume Bazinet, Bell's FX Innovation CEO. Together with FX Innovation, these new acquisitions accelerate Bell's position as a tech services leader in Canada, the company said.
