SmartSource Expands Worldwide Presence with Acquisition of Global IT SOS

October 23, 2019 GMT

ST. CHARLES, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 23, 2019--

SmartSource, Inc., a leading IT solutions provider, has acquired Costa Rica-based IT solutions and staffing firm Global IT SOS. With the acquisition, SmartSource gains a proprietary network of more than 250 partners in 132 countries. Global IT SOS President Diego Soto will become SmartSource’s new president of international operations.

“SmartSource is committed to delivering the people and processes businesses need to advance and win with technology,” says SmartSource CEO Joe Iovinelli. “Our acquisition of Global IT SOS does just that by giving our clients access to a pool of hundreds of IT partners in countries worldwide. Serving as a one-stop-shop when it comes to IT support and solutions, we now can service our clients at their offices around the globe.”

SmartSource’s many U.S.-based clients – including an established base of Fortune 1000 companies and 10 of the top 20 value added resellers (VARs) – now will have access to IT solutions and staff globally. Additionally, SmartSource clients will be able to leverage Global IT SOS’s international call center, which services IT and networking issues remotely for any client.

“We are thrilled to become part of the SmartSource family,” comments Soto. “The acquisition brings the support of a larger sales force, access to an established base of clients, and a broad range of working capital to our significant network of suppliers.”

The acquisition comes on the heels of significant growth at SmartSource, which has hired more than 35 people at its St. Charles, Ill., headquarters in 2019. The company’s additional expansion plans include building out its sales force in New York, New Jersey, Atlanta, Seattle, Los Angeles and San Francisco in the coming year.
