Computer systems supplier Kerridge Commercial Systems has bought TIS Software, which trades as Strategix OneOffice and Global Business Systems.
The company provides ERP solutions specifically designed for the wholesale and retail distribution, logistics and service sectors.
Kerridge CEO Ian Bendelow says: “Kerridge Commercial Systems and TIS Software already share some customers and in some areas operate in similar markets. We complement each other very well. I am confident that the blended skills, resources and capacity that the organisations offer together will further strengthen our solutions and services.
“In other markets we add to each other’s capabilities and solutions. In those areas, we look forward to extending our reach and growing business together. The combination will bring our joint customers a much more comprehensive solution and deliver even greater value to customers who are constantly innovating and building their own service.”
Mike Johns, CEO of TIS Software, says: “We feel the two businesses are a great fit together, with very similar history, culture and values. TIS Software has grown through the hard work of its people and constant support of its many customers. As a part of the larger Kerridge group I am confident that our customers and staff will benefit from broader opportunities and further enhanced longer term options”.
