Wavenet partner’s Canon to widen its portfolio to include print services

United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, 10 June 2024 – Wavenet, a managed services provider offering businesses cybersecurity, communications, and connectivity, has onboarded a range of Multifunctional Printers (MFPs) as part of its next phase of growth as a Canon partner. By widening its portfolio, the business will be able to expand its customer base and build new revenue streams.   

Founded in 2000, Wavenet provides businesses with technology solutions to ensure they are fit for the future. Currently the power behind Canon’s IT Services proposition, this two-way partnership and the synergy between the companies has grown stronger, with both working together to identify opportunities that’ll maximise growth.

There has been a natural progression for Wavenet to move into the print space and this next phase will see the business thrive as a trusted Canon partner. By integrating print into Wavenet’s value proposition, it closes the loop and provide its customers – from Small and Medium-sized Businesses (SMBs) to large enterprises - with a complete end-to-end service. This holistic offering will give Wavenet a competitive advantage to stay ahead in the fast-paced technology market.

Canon’s all-in-one MFPs are designed to drive digital transformation, enhancing productivity and efficiency, without compromising on quality. These innovative devices work hand-in-hand with smart software to digitise business processes. With Canon’s MFPs, Wavenet’s introduction to print can be refined and simple, while the next stage of the partnership will see the business move into software solutions such as uniFLOW Online. 

For Wavenet, success is growth in its customer base and an increase in revenue. As part of the consultative approach to the partnership, Canon will be on hand to offer expert counsel and advice while the business develops its own in-house specialist sales team to achieve its long-term goals.

Antony Black, Director of Wholesale, Wavenet comments: “We are at a pivotal stage in the market, whereby IT vendors are starting to include print in their offering. We can’t wait to strengthen our strategic alliance with Canon to widen our portfolio, meet customer needs and accelerate business growth.”

Stuart Miller, Director, Channel Partners, Canon UK & Ireland adds: “At Canon, our partners are at the centre of our business and we are delighted to be taking our long-standing relationship with Wavenet to the next level as a trusted partner while reaffirming our position also as a Wavenet IT partner. We’re working closely with the team to support them throughout this learning process, so that they can expand their capabilities for existing and new customers.”
