Who We Are
Your Trusted Technology Partner
Innov8 Digital Solutions Inc. is B.C. largest independently owned and operated office equipment sales and service organization. Innov8 is the cumulation of several independent corporations into one strong, customer focused business. The business that started it all was the acquisition of Lakeside Office Systems in Kelowna by Andre Brosseau in 2013 from Canon Canada. Lakeside was a mid-size operation with 10 employees servicing over 600 clients in the Okanagan Valley and Kamloops. Within two years the client base nearly doubled and Innov8 was recognized as the fastest growing Canon Dealer in Canada.
In May 2015 Andre teamed up with long time colleague Brent Cartier to purchase Unity Business Machines Ltd. based in Victoria, BC. Unity had been operating since 1978 and was known as the industry leader and largest in the market.
September 2016 was a pivotal point which saw the bringing together of Innov8 and Unity under the same corporate structure of Innov8 Digital Solutions Inc. Christmas came early and on December 1, 2016 Innov8 acquired Unity Business Systems Ltd based out of Nanaimo B.C. who also had sales and service offices in Courtenay and Campbell River. This gave Innov8 the Island wide coverage they were wanting to offer their client base and set them up for the next move.
On February 1, 2017 Canon Canada sold their Vancouver Island operations to Innov8. With this, Innov8 became recognized as the largest supplier offering the best service coverage on the Island.
With a team of over 50, and 6 sales and service offices, the support for customers across the Thompson Okanagan and Vancouver Island is second to none.
