The Answer Company Acquires Accounts from Caron Business Solutions

The Answer Company is excited to announce that it has acquired a large part of Caron Business Solutions’ customers. Caron was a Top 5 Canadian Reseller of Sage solutions in a number of verticals. While they shift operations to focus solely on their mining clients, The Answer Company will now manage all of their other accounts. Caron’s business, clients and strategic focus complement and fully align with The Answer Company’s.

The acquisition will accelerate The Answer Company’s growth momentum and long-term growth strategy by strengthening its market position. They are fortunate; despite the economic downturn, they are forecasted to see double-digit growth in 2020.

Bringing these new accounts and resources into the equation enables them to provide better value and better service to their clients and employees. A number of Caron staff will join the team at The Answer Company, giving it a combined workforce of more than 80 professionals.

“We’re very excited about this new partnership with Caron. We have worked with Paul and his employees for many years. We know that their purpose and business strategy are in line with ours and we believe that we can make this a seamless experience for both teams, and of course, the customers,” said Shawn Ostheimer, CEO and President of The Answer Company. “In the middle of such an uncertain time, this is welcome good news!”

The Answer Company is a strong presence in the Canadian ERP market, as one of the top technology consultancy firms. They are Sage’s largest partner in Western Canada, and second-largest nationally, with over 1,700 clients in their portfolio. The Answer Company has no plans to move its headquarters, staying put in New Westminster, BC. They have offices across Canada, in Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg and Toronto.

Paul Caron, the founder of Caron Business Solutions, said:

“Many of the Canadian partners have known each other for years, and we’ve had the chance to work alongside The Answer Company on a number of occasions. Their expertise and commitment to their customers make this move so much easier. I’m looking forward to focusing in on our niche, mining, safe in the knowledge that my former clients will be in great hands.”
