Getting Off The Ground: Q&A With George Ferris Of New Service Provider CompassMSP

You mentioned potential acquisitions in the future. What do you have your eyes on?

First of all, we've defined ourselves as serving small and medium-sized businesses, so that’s an important part of it. We want to make sure that we are focused on a set of skills in managed technology and to a degree, managed telecom … but we want to basically provide a relatively full suite of services to our clients however they choose to run their technology, whether it's on-prem, in our private cloud, or in a public cloud. We just want to basically bring sophisticated technology solutions to our customers and become their IT partner.

If there are other acquisition opportunities for us, it will [involve] people who share that vision and where their business profile fits that strategy. There are obviously many out there and we've spoken to a number already.
