iA Financial Group is one of the largest groups of insurance and wealth management companies in Canada, employing over 9,000 people. 

As a partner of iA Financial Group since 2018, Solotech is responsible for supplying, installing, supporting, maintaining, and servicing the company’s audiovisual and videoconferencing rooms. 

When iA Financial Group’s ambitious redevelopment project, including deploying nearly 200 Microsoft Teams rooms across Canada, came calling, Solotech answered the call by mobilizing a team dedicated to project implementation and follow-up. 

Requiring a significant amount of equipment within a tight timeframe, procurement was a key factor in successfully executing the project. So, the Solotech team turned to Crestron for its videoconferencing systems and room reservation screens, in addition to Poly, Jabra, Biamp, and LG products, to ensure the delivery of state-of-the-art rooms that would delight both customers and user alike. 

Michel Fortin, Business Developer at Solotech, is proud of the project’s success, which was reflected in the ability to overcome challenges related to the delivery and acquisition of equipment. “The trust and strong alliance established with the customer, the support of a passionate project team, coupled with customer satisfaction, represent our greatest source of pride. It’s a testament to our dedication to putting the customer at the center of our priorities.” 

For his part, Jean-Pierre Lefebvre, IT Analyst at iA Financial Group, spoke on behalf of his team to underline the important collaboration of Solotech’s experts: “Solotech has been an important partner in our office redevelopment projects across Canada, despite construction and procurement delays and last-minute additions. Their greatest strengths are flexibility, staff competence and availability. They had to deploy a team from Quebec City to Toronto to meet deadlines, and that was no problem. I don’t think our deployment of some 200 hybrid conference rooms in 6 months would have met the deadline without their invaluable collaboration. A huge thank you to Solotech for their professionalism!”
