ScanSource’s Acquisition of Canpango


O’Melveny represented ScanSource, Inc. on the deal

ScanSource, Inc. (NASDAQ: SCSC), a leading global provider of technology products and solutions, today announced the acquisition of Canpango, a longstanding Salesforce implementation and consulting partner. Canpango provides professional services for companies across the globe, including Salesforce solution configuration and implementation, business process consulting, training and education, application development, data migration and reporting.

With this acquisition, ScanSource and Intelisys partners can build out their customer relationship management (CRM) capabilities and professional services offering without starting their own practice. CRM is essential for a successful customer experience and the gateway to other opportunities. With Canpango’s expertise and resources, partners can uncover and expedite new revenue streams and opportunities, such as CRM and customer support solutions integrated directly with contact center as a service (CCaaS) and unified communications as a service (UCaaS).

Canpango has approximately 70 employees and is headquartered in Milwaukee, WI, with offices in Chicago, New York, London and Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Matt Lautz, along with the Canpango team, will join ScanSource. Lautz will lead Canpango as ScanSource’s CRM and business process consulting practice, broadening the company’s reach and continuing to build a long-lasting global relationship with Salesforce and the growing partner community. Previously, he was a co-founder and CEO of Corvisa, a cloud communications provider that was sold in January of 2016 to ShoreTel, a long-time strategic vendor partner of ScanSource.

The O’Melveny team was led by Corporate partner David Smith (Picture) and included associates Zach Greenberg (in Newport Beach), Matt Carter (in Los Angeles), and Steven Xie (in Century City).
