Fisher’s Document Systems will top off a busy five-month period by rebranding itself as Fisher’s Technology on July 1.

The company entered the outsourced information technology service industry by purchasing IT companies Xenial Technology and Freemanz.net in February.

Fisher’s, which expanded from Boise to Twin Falls and Idaho Falls last year, purchased competitor Digital Imaging, which has locations in Boise and Twin Falls, in May. Terms of the deals were not disclosed.

Digital Imaging’s parent company, Capitol Copy and Print, will retain Digital Imaging’s offices. Fisher’s will gain some assets and inventory, but made the purchase primarily to gain market share, President and CEO Chris Taylor said.

“Essentially, we are buying their customer base,” Taylor said.

Fisher’s has 75 employees and will hire three more in the coming months, he said.

Taylor said the company saw an opportunity to combine its expertise in document software and management systems with IT services.

“At a larger organization, if you have a question about a phone or a printer or an application on the server, you can call one number and have it solved,” Taylor said. “We are now in a position to manage all of that and offer that level of internal IT support for smaller organizations.”

Taylor said he plans to continue expanding the company through acquisitions and starting offices in new cities.

“There are certainly advantages to statewide coverage,” Taylor said. “We already have southern Idaho, so northern Idaho should be on the road map for some point.”
