“The team at Integrity Growth Partners [IGP] was happy to help fund this strategic acquisition for ScalePad,” stated Doyl Burkett, managing partner and founder at IGP, who led ScalePad’s first round of external funding in July 2021. “We see a tremendous opportunity in the MSP market and Backup Radar was a natural fit with ScalePad’s people, partners and platform. We look forward to working with Dan and his team on future acquisitions that will strengthen their position as a leading technology provider for MSPs worldwide.”
“We are excited to welcome Backup Radar employees and partners to ScalePad,” said Wensley. “While we share hundreds of partners globally, our plan is to leverage our combined resources to deliver increased value and enhanced services to all partners and both platforms while maintaining each products’ independence in the market.
