RAD Software, a leading provider of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software solutions in Scotland has been acquired by Aspera Solutions.
AJ Cunningham, founder of RAD Solutions comments
“For a number of years it was clear to me that to achieve the growth that was possible for RAD Software, organic growth was not the immediate model for success. Hence, the search for a buyer that shared the same passion for great service and great products began.
From the very outset it was clear that Aspera Solutions share those same goals and put their customers and people at the heart of their service.
This common set of principles and goals sets the path for a great success for all RAD customers and employees. With increased skilled resource and capability, the vision for the future is secured and set, bringing a level of capability and knowledge unsurpassed as RAD and Aspera forge ahead as the largest Epicor ERP partner in the UK”.
Lonan Byrne, Managing Director of Aspera Solutions points out that the synergy created by the deal will enhance the service offering to the UK and Ireland customer base.
“Both organisations have exceptionally talented people and an inherent knowledge of how a well- integrated ERP solution delivers real business value. The coming together of our two teams ensures the continued delivery of the highest level of service to our customers in the UK and Ireland”
“The business drivers for investment in ERP solutions of increased complexity and regulation means that our customers require a fully integrated solution approach. Our core values ensure that Aspera Solutions engages with each of our customers in a collaborative and proactive manner. We look forward very much to working with RAD customers as we continue our growth as the leading provider of integrated ERP solutions to large and mid-sized organisations.”
