We are thrilled to have them join PwC.”

The Stratus360 team will join PwC’s front office transformation practice, which has seen increasing demand as companies digitally accelerate in the pandemic era. Salesforce consulting remains a particularly hot area, and larger consultancies have been eagerly bolting on boutique firms like Stratus360 to quickly scale up. Canadian Salesforce specialists AppCentrica, Relation1, and Foundry52 have been snapped up in the last 12 months.

The deal follows PwC’s September acquisition of Avaleris, an Ottawa-based cybersecurity consulting firm with 30+ employees.
