Deal strengthens Nubik’s offering for the manufacturing and distribution industry on the U.S. East Coast.
Montreal, September 6th, 2018 — Nubik Inc, a Montreal-based provider of cloud-based business solutions powered by Salesforce, announced today that it has acquired US-based Idle Tools, a full-service provider of Salesforce solutions headquartered in Raleigh, North Carolina. Under the agreement, Nubik and Idle Tools will merge their business operations to strengthen their offering in the Digital Transformation to Manufacturers and Distributors, High Tech and Professional Services organization and as well as providing the company with strategic positioning on North America’s East Coast
According to the terms of the agreement, Nubik will acquire Idle Tools’ assets, personnel, and customer contracts, and the merged organization will operate under the Nubik brand. The expanded business will serve over 800 organizations across the USA and Canada, with a total count of over 100 employees operating remotely on the continent.
The Nubik executive team is excited to welcome Idle Tools staff, their profound expertise in recommending and implementing Salesforce-based business solutions, and their hundreds of satisfied customers.
“Our mutual expertise in Salesforce solutions for the manufacturing and distribution industry, coupled with our complementary footprint throughout the U.S. East Coast was the driving force that lead to this win-win partnership”,
explains Katie Bussières, President of Nubik Inc.
“However, a collaboration such as this one would not be possible without a strong cultural fit. During our discussions, it became quickly apparent that we share a commitment and a strong set of values towards our customers and employees.”
This transaction has obvious synergy. Over the years, Idle Tools has developed several intelligent business tools based on the Salesforce platform that bring added value for manufacturers. Paired now with Nubik’s business solution from Lead Acquisition to Contract Renewals, customers will thrive in their shift to becoming digitally-powered smart factories or organizations, whichever the case may be.
“We are extremely thankful for the company we were able to build and very proud to become a part of the Nubik family”,
said Scott Thomas, CEO of Idle Tools.
“Becoming collectively stronger is the main driver in our decision to merge with Nubik. We both share a passion for building customer success on the Salesforce platform. We have been warmly welcomed and the positive Nubik culture they have established with their employees is already tangible and appealing for our people. We look forward to working together as a unified team.”

In June 2018, it was nominated “Best places to work in Canada”. In August 2016, Nubik was named the winner of the Montreal Young Chamber of Commerce award and Quebec Government for Best Work Life Balance.
While Nubik has been recognized as a Salesforce Platinum Partner for the quality of its consulting and implementation practices, an invaluable endorsement of what it provides comes from its customers.
