Asolvi, a European leader in field service management solutions, has acquired PC Data in Hull, England, its third acquisition in 2019 and fifth since 2016.
PC Data is the UK’s leading independent supplier of service management software for the fire & security systems industry. It is the architect of the popular Alarm Master solution and has more than 600 customers nationwide. Together Asolvi and PC Data will have more than 1,500 customers across 30+ countries.
“This is a logical step for us following our other acquisitions in the UK within the field service management space,” says Pål M. Rødseth, CEO of Asolvi. “The team at PC Data have served the UK fire & security sector with class-leading solutions for many years. Following discussions with Ken Symmonds and Philip Jackson of PC Data, we all agreed that we can create better, stronger products and secure the existing customer base by joining forces. Asolvi has a good number of customers in this vertical already, but now PC Data brings a pool of industry specialists to the table. This will help us deepen our expertise in fire safety and security systems and become Europe’s top provider of field service management software for this market.”
PC Data’s Ken Symmonds and Philip Jackson say, “We are firm believers that Asolvi is the right home for PC Data going forwards. We believe that being part of a larger software group will add strength to the product development that is needed in such a high-stakes market. We have also got to know Asolvi as a competent and dedicated company in the service management space and are confident that bringing the companies together will benefit our customers in the future.”
The consecutive acquisitions of Tesseract, WS Software, Purpose Software, Vantage Computing and PC Data are in line with Asolvi’s strategy to become the leading provider of field service management systems for SMEs in Europe. The company has now added Alarm Master and BASE to its broadening product suite, which already includes the world-renowned Evatic, Tesseract, WinServ, CBS, 2Serv, Service Accent and Vantage Online solutions.
Asolvi is a private company owned by the founders, management and Viking Venture.
