News from Fujitsu

Now that we’re partnered with Fujitsu, we will from time to time re-blog some of their announcements. (If “re-tweet” is a word, why not “re-blog”? As the late great sportscaster (and Nova Scotian) Danny Gallivan once said, “it’s a word now!”…

Partnership with Fujitsu Consulting

It was my pleasure to spend the last two days in Halifax with David Shearer, President and CEO of Fujitsu Canada.

Fujitsu Consulting, the consulting and IT services arm of Fujitsu Canada (which previously operated in Atlantic Canada as DMR Consulting) has selected Nicom IT Solutions Inc. as its business partner in Atlantic Canada. We spent his time here visiting customers and new prospects. David is no stranger to Atlantic Canada; having lived in Nova Scotia for 4 years and attending Dalhousie University.

As our partnership progresses, I look forward to introducing David to additional customers and prospects in our region.

  • Devices and Deployment (which is more on the hardware end of things).

We are proud of these certs and the people who make them happen.
