AMCS acquires US-based SaaS software solutions provider DesertMicro
Acquisition in-line with company’s growth strategy, further positioning AMCS as a global technology leader in the waste and recycling sector
UK-based AMCS has acquired DesertMicro, the Florida-based SaaS (software-as-a-service) solutions provider for the waste industry. According to AMCS, the acquisition is in-line with the company's growth strategy and furthers its position as a global technology leader in the waste & recycling sector.
AMCS says their solution portfolio will be further strengthened by DesertMicro's suite of cloud software designed specifically for the waste and recycling industry, which includes a highly developed and fully-embedded payment channel. DesertMicro has built up an impressive customer base over the last 30 years. In total, the acquisition will add over 250 customers from across the US and Canada to the existing global customer list of 1,600.
Commenting on the acquisition, AMCS CEO, Jimmy Martin, said;
"The waste and recycling industry is going through a massive transition. Companies are re-positioning themselves in the growing, more circular economy. These organisations also have an increasing appetite to digitalise their business and automate business processes. It requires software companies like AMCS, with a certain scale, to be able to make the investments needed to support this transformation. With the addition of DesertMicro to AMCS, we have the opportunity to further strengthen our global footprint, expand our product portfolio and continue to invest in our state of-the-art AMCS Platform."
"I would like to take this opportunity to welcome DesertMicro's customers and employees to AMCS and assure them that they will experience a seamless transition and a high level of support from our global organisation," said Michael Winton, President of the region for ACMS. "Going forward, I am confident they will benefit from an increased level of support and access to even broader and more powerful technology offerings, designed to improve their operational efficiency and support their plans for future growth."
The acquisition follows the recent announcement that AMCS had successfully completed another round of investment from Insight Venture Partners and Ireland Strategic Investment Fund (ISIF). In January 2018, AMCS completed the acquisition of Brady Recycling solutions from Brady PLC and in recent years has completed eight other key acquisitions across the globe, continuing to strengthen its position as a world leader in software and technology for the waste & recycling sector.
