AMCS acquire US software solutions provider
Latest DesertMicro acquisition strengthens company’s position as a global technology leader in waste and recycling sector
IRELAND-based AMCS, software specialists for the recycling and waste-management sector, have purchased Florida-based DesertMicro for an undisclosed sum. The recent acquisition is in line with the company’s growth strategy and will further its position as a world technology leader in the waste and recycling industry.
AMCS say their solutions portfolio will be bolstered by DesertMicro's suite of cloud software (eg fully embedded payment channel) designed specifically for waste-management and recycling operators. Over the last 30 years DesertMicro have built up an impressive customer base and the acquisition will add over 250 North American customers to an existing AMCS global customer list of 1,600.
Jimmy Martin, chief executive officer of AMCS, said: ‘The waste and recycling industry is going through a massive transition. Companies are repositioning themselves in the growing, more circular economy. These organizations also have an increasing appetite to digitalize 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.’
Discussing the direction of the company in North America, Michael Winton, AMCS president of the region, said: ‘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 organization.
‘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.’
