Intact has acquired UK-based software house, Blue Rock Systems. The Southampton business has been reselling, implementing and supporting Intact ERP systems (enterprise resource planning) for over 16 years.
Intact CEO, Justin Lawless, commented: “The acquisition of Blue Rock Systems is part of Intact’s strategy to become the leading provider of ERP and business software solutions in the merchant and distribution sector.
“This important development adds to our strong customer base and involves a team of highly skilled individuals, with deep software industry expertise, who will enhance customer service and support our growth plans.”
Blue Rock Systems’ full team has been retained as part of the acquisition deal, which will see Intact employee numbers increase from 200 to 243 staff across Ireland and the UK.
Blue Rock Systems already implement and support Intact developed systems across a network of UK trade customers and has successfully developed complementary products including e-commerce, POD scanning and online auctioning, to expand the solution on offer. The company specialises in the same target verticals as Intact, primarily merchants and distribution.
