“We are very excited to join forces with Fidus Global in our rapidly growing business for Connected Buildings,” said Dr. Patrick O’Neill, mCloud’s President for North America. “Because Fidus Global already has a solid customer base with large multi-site building portfolios, we expect to quickly add thousands of connected assets at a low cost of customer acquisition.”
