How was the acquisition process?

Because of the Covid pandemic, all communication had to be completed remotely for the acquisition. Despite this, we were able to use our knowledge and experience of buying vertical market software companies to keep the process straightforward and smooth for all those involved.

As part of a succession plan organised separately and prior to the acquisition, Paul Flood, who had previously been Operations Manager for 15 years, had taken over as General Manager. When Stephane stepped down, he took on the role of an Ambassador within Vesta Software Group to help support us with further acquisitions.

As part of the group, we get the best of both worlds. We've maintained our small, friendly feel, but also now have the reassurance and stability of being part of a bigger, established group.
