West Perth-based Qbit has expanded its offering after acquiring two technology companies, PCGURU and Innov8ive Technology. 

The information technology company has bought computer support provider PCGURU and IT solutions and managed services provider Innov8ive Technology. 

PCGURU and Innova8ive Technology managing director Debra Harpley decided to retire, and selected Qbit to continue its operations.

As part of the acquisition, Innov8ive Technology’s staff and clients will be integrated into Qbit’s system and the Innov8ive brand will be dissolved.

In a statement, the company said management expected a smooth transition for clients and staff of Innov8ive Tech into Qbit as they share similar management systems and software.

PCGURU will remain its own brand and retain the in-house, onsite and remote computer support services it offers.

Qbit director Fabio Suffell said the company was the perfect fit for Innov8ive Tech and PCGURU.

“Our business development managers, Jamie Duff and John Williams, have made good progress in securing new clients and this acquisition will definitely boost our progress in reaching our annual growth goal,” said Mr Suffell. 

He said the merger would increase Qbit's regular managed services customers to 250. 

"It's a nice big step up," Mr Suffell told Business News

Qbit acquired five staff in the merger, bringing its total number of employees to 37. 

Mr Suffell said the new staff would give the businesses expertise in the mining and aged care sectors.
