July 23, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
South Florida based SLPowers, a leading provider of managed Information Technology (IT) solutions, has announced the acquisition of Guardian Angel Computer Services, a network support and managed services company with offices in Norwalk, Connecticut and Melbourne, Florida. The acquisition will be effective August 1, 2009.

For over 15 years, Guardian Angel has been providing comprehensive IT solutions including expert computer network design, network implementation & support, and their nationally recognized network management platform, AngelWatch™, to businesses in Florida & Connecticut. Guardian Angel also has an established EMR (Electronic Medical Records) practice in common with SLPowers.

"SLPowers is happy to welcome Guardian Angel's clients to the SLPowers family," stated Bob Hochmuth, SLPowers' Vice President of Sales. "And we are excited that Laura Steward, Guardian Angel's CEO will be joining our leadership as Director of Healthcare Services. Her experience will be a welcome addition as our Healthcare SBU (specialized business unit) continues to grow."

"We're finding that many IT service companies want the benefit of associating with a larger organization, an experienced management team and a brand name", said Rory Sanchez, CEO of SLPowers. "Guardian Angel is a perfect fit for us. Also, Guaranteed Networks®, our award winning network management platform is second to none and as a result [of this acquisition] we're going to raise the bar as to what Connecticut businesses can expect from an outsourced IT services company."

Guardian Angel is the second acquisition made by SLPowers during the last two years, who has already established a presence in South Florida, Metro Atlanta, Jacksonville, Nashville and is actively seeking other potential acquisitions.

For over 20 years, SLPowers has focused on delivering enterprise class IT to small and medium sized businesses. Their flagship managed IT and business continuity platform, Guaranteed Networks®, provides flat fee computer network service contracts, hosted EMR and infrastructure management services. SLPowers, a Microsoft Gold Partner for Advanced Infrastructure, provides IT professional services and IT procurement & logistics services to businesses around the US and the Caribbean.
