2016 A Monumental Year for Charter

After a year of exponential growth, we are excited to recap Charter’s monumental year and share what this means for our clients and partners moving forward.

This spring, we announced that Charter has acquired Victoria-based Boardwalk Communications – one of the top Cisco network integrators in Western Canada. The merger fortifies Charter’s national presence and deepens the array of solutions we offer to our customers.

With the acquisition of Boardwalk, Charter adds industry-leading Cisco products to our solutions suite and increases the breadth of our team of technology experts. All of Boardwalk’s staff have joined Charter, growing our company to more than 90 employees in eight offices across Canada.

Together, we are exponentially more capable of providing our clients with powerful IT solutions to their business problems. We now have the capacity of a bigger IT company without losing focus on the personalized customer service and acute understanding of business requirements that has brought both companies to this point.

The acquisition of Boardwalk, a company that works extensively with healthcare providers, is a strategic move for Charter as our team continues to focus on building healthcare-specific solutions in 2017. Philip Stone, who is leading this effort, has added industry veteran Dave Mathieson from Cisco’s healthcare division, to the team.

Charter is also celebrating an award-winning year. This fall, Charter was named one of the Top 20 Most Promising IT Infrastructure Solution Providers in North America by CIOReview magazine for being at the forefront of providing technology solutions and our impact on the marketplace. Boardwalk was also recognized this year with the Architectural Excellence, Enterprise Networking award for Canada from Cisco after growing the company’s Enterprise Network business more than 100% in FY 2016.

Our company is growing, dynamic and modern, so we are excited to announce that our new and refreshed website www.charter.ca is now live!

Our new website is clean and easy to navigate so you can learn more about our growing solutions suite, our partners, and our technology success stories. We are also creating new ways to connect to our clients and partners. This blog will be updated monthly, and we will be launching a quarterly newsletter with case studies, technology news and tips, product updates and exclusive offers. At Charter, our most valuable asset is our people – so we will also introduce you to our team and share their stories.

Clients can easily access the My Charter customer portal and our Trouble Ticket system on the new website at www.charter.ca/my-charter.

After this monumental year, Charter is now positioned to address new technology challenges and build new solutions in 2017. We look forward to sharing more on this in the near future. For now, we invite you to explore our new website and sign-up for our quarterly newsletter.
