Vesta Software Group acquires MWC Partners

Wallingford, United Kingdom, July 1st, 2024 – Vesta Software Group Ltd. (“Vesta”) is pleased to announce the acquisition of MWC Partners Ltd. (“MWC”), a specialist in retail payments technology with expertise in the integration of point-of-sale software and payment systems for global payment service providers.

Richard Clancy, Group CEO of Vesta, stated “Today we welcome MWC into our portfolio. MWC’s status as the leading independent vendor of Cegid Retail in the UK and the company’s proven ability to develop, deliver and maintain integrations between POS software and global payment service providers, will enhance Vesta’s existing presence in the merchant services market. We look forward to supporting the company, its employees and clients in growing and strengthening their service offerings.”

Steve Watson and David Mahoney, MWC Partners’ founders, shared their perspective on the acquisition, saying, “When we founded MWC Partners eleven years ago, we had a vision of delivering market-leading solutions and services into the retail sector and we have been proud of our achievements to date. We have also developed, during this same period, a widely recognised expertise in integrating POS solutions with payment software, which has resulted in our working with many of the world’s largest PSPs.

Deciding to move to the next phase of the company’s evolution was made easier by Vesta’s style and vision for the future. Our goals, ambitions and values are very much aligned, and we are confident that with Vesta’s backing, we will continue to grow and offer the same level of services to our existing customer base and into new markets.”
