Levio buys software program engineering consultancy Voonyx
Levio, a technology consultancy headquartered in Montreal, has acquired Voonyx, a Quebec-based software development consultancy.
Voonyx was founded in 2010 and specializes in digital transformation and software development and has expertise in Java, web applications, mobile applications, DevOps and quality assurance, among other things.
The company has particular expertise in implementing Guidewire, a major insurance software suite with products such as PolicyCenter, ClaimCenter and BillingCenter. The company also implements EIS, another software package for the insurance industry.
Voonyx has more than 120 consultants in offices in Quebec, Montreal and Boca Raton, Louisiana. The company has been recognized as one of the Top 100 Employers in Canada (SME category) for at least six years.
Levio’s acquisition of Voonyx will bring the company’s workforce to more than 1,600. Levio has eight offices in Canada, the United States, and Morocco.
“Voonyx is a dynamic and growing company that stands out in the market for the high quality of its consultants and the excellence of its services,” said François Dion, President of Levio. “Levio welcomes these new consultants who will add value to our clients while giving them access to new career opportunities and even more rewarding and motivating projects.”
Levio has grown rapidly since its inception eight years ago and was named the 2nd fastest company in the 2019 edition of Canadian Business Magazine’s Growth 500 list. The company acquired Landry & Associates, a Montreal-based boutique management consultancy, earlier this year, and Montreal-based IT consulting firms Logimethods and ERP Connex last year.
“Joining a Quebec-based company was clearly an important element of our decision,” said Philippe Larouche, Co-President of Voonyx. “Having a shared vision and values will make our integration into the group much easier and ensure that everyone is headed in the same direction. Our ambitions are high and we believe that we are excellently positioned to offer our customers an incomparable range of services. “
