LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Oct. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- ClearPointe, a managed IT service provider headquartered in Little Rock, Arkansas today announced the acquisition of Do IT Smarter, a managed service provider based in San Diego, California. The addition of Do IT Smarter makes the third acquisition for ClearPointe in the past year. In October 2009, they acquired TecWatch, a Dallas-based provider, followed by Savant Technologies in January 2010. However, the Do IT Smarter acquisition is different from the previous ones, according to Jeff Johnson, President and CEO of ClearPointe, "Do IT Smarter is what's known in the industry as a 'channel only' company. They became a successful Master Managed Service Provider by developing a unique service platform, offered through their network of partners located across the U.S. and Canada." Johnson went on to say, "ClearPointe has been blessed with double digit business growth for the past few years and the addition of Do IT Smarter to our business family strengthens our capabilities and allows us to provide unprecedented service to a wider range of customers."
Lane Smith, president of Do IT Smarter added, "It is very exciting to be a part of ClearPointe. This move provides us with additional resources to continue our growth as a Master MSP and better serve the smaller and mid-market customers with the high level of service both companies have been known for. It's a great fit."
Do IT Smarter will continue to operate under the same business name and the Do IT Smarter executive management team will continue to manage operations for this segment of the business. ClearPointe executive Tom Allen will oversee the delivery of these services through ClearPointe branch offices located in San Diego, CA, Dallas, TX, Rogers, AR and Little Rock, AR. Services optimized for upper mid-market customers will continue to be based at ClearPointe's corporate headquarters in Little Rock.
