Canada’s MNP Acquires Technology Firm

Calgary, Alberta-based MNP has acquired Mantralogix, a technology firm that will merge with MNP on July 1.

Kerry Mann, president and CEO, and COO Jess Mann will be made new partners and bring a staff of 20 experts to MNP. Mantralogix is located in Mississauga, a suburb of Toronto.

Sean Murphy, MNP’s regional MP of consulting for eastern Canada, says, “Merging in Mantralogix, a full-service business management software solutions company and IT consulting firm, will allow us to build on our existing strengths and offer new solutions, particularly in the area of cloud and on-premise enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions, in order to bring even greater value for our clients.”

According to the Canadian Accountant, the move is part of a trend of national accounting firms providing ERP software solutions and IT consulting. All Big 4 firms have partnerships with software businesses: PwC with SAP, Deloitte with Oracle and SAP, KMPG with Oracle, Microsoft and IBM, and EY with IBM, Microsoft and SAP.

MNP says Mantralogix’s partnership with the Acumatica and Sage enables them to build, support and maintain successful IT solutions.

“In this dynamic environment the needs of Canadian companies are always evolving, so we are constantly working with our clients to better understand how we can best support them,” says Jeremy Cole, executive vice president for MNP’s Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic region. “MNP has a strong presence serving diverse clients right across the country and we are committed to helping more businesses reach their full potential.”

Kerry Mann says the union will add more specialized services and a broader range of industry expertise and experiences to clients.

“We are always looking at new ways to help our clients achieve their goals. That starts with having the ability to look at a business from every angle to make sure we understand the challenges and opportunities they face and how we can truly help to bring value to the relationship,” says Mann. “This merger is a great example of how two firms can come together to enhance each other’s service offerings and give our clients the edge they need to stay competitive and grow for the future.”

The Mantralogix team plans to move into MNP’s Mississauga office in the future. MNP has more than 4,500 employees in more than 75 locations.
