We've Expanded into Canada

Kristin Johnson // October 28, 2013

We have acquired Quadrus Development Inc., a leading IT services and solutions firm headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. As a five-time Inc500/5000 recipient (2009-2013 Honor Roll), the transaction is expected to increase Improving's annualized revenue by more than 20% and will expand its geographic reach beyond the United States and into Canada. 

Furthermore, this merger represents the continued execution and success of Improving's "Enterprise Model", an innovative business strategy focused on merging service companies who share a genuine commitment to excellence, service and culture. The model combines localized incentives and ownership behavior with the power and benefit of leveraged services and common vision. As a result, the entire Quadrus leadership team will continue operating and growing the Calgary business, contributing to Improving’s continued success across North America. 

"The secret is to truly preserve the local ownership behavior which has already made each of these companies successful," states Curtis Hite, CEO of Improving Enterprises. "Quadrus’ 20-year track record of business success and strong corporate culture makes them an ideal company to join the Improving team. They are a natural fit which will enable us to effectively leverage the cornerstone of Improving's success – sincere community engagement and overwhelming employee involvement."

The company’s service offerings are very closely aligned with a focus on Agile, Microsoft (.NET) and Java application development services. The merger will also significantly strengthen the breadth and depth of technical consulting services, business intelligence and data services, and training offerings that can now be leveraged across local and international markets. Furthermore, Quadrus also has an array of powerful development tools, including the Quadrus Estimator Suite, which is expected to expand the revenues of Improving’s entire group. 

"We are thrilled with the Improving/Quadrus merger”, states Brian Donaldson, co-founder and Chief Technical Director of Quadrus. “Both companies have a strong commitment to delivering quality services and providing a great place to work for our people – it’s a perfect fit. We look forward to bringing the best of both Quadrus and Improving to our projects and continuing to serve our valued customers in Western Canada, now as part of the Improving team.”
