The Access Group, the Loughborough provider of business management software, has bought Isys, a Derby- and Horsham-based organisation offering management software solutions designed to support a range of industries throughout waste management, aggregate and material sales to dairy and food services.
Isys was founded in 1979 with the aim of providing administrative and back-office solutions across the sector, recently adding web and mobile solutions to its portfolio.
Brendan Flattery, managing director of Access ERP, said: “Access ERP already has a strong footprint in many emerging, high growth sectors in the UK such as construction, manufacturing and facilities management, offering industry-leading solutions supported with core business management software, serving over 9,000 Access customers across the UK, US, Australia and New Zealand. We’re keen to add new and innovative software solutions such as Isys to the Access portfolio, which are tailor-made to support the growth of key industry sectors. With its focus on waste management in the UK, Isys is a perfect fit for our growing ERP solution set.
“We are really excited to be welcoming the Isys team into the Access Group.”
Richard Bowers, managing director, and Chris Kings, sales director, of Isys will be staying on at Access as members of the ERP leadership team.
Bowers commented: “Joining Access gives Isys a new level of expertise in the provision of integrated software solutions, an acceleration of our product development and allows our customers the opportunity to explore an even wider range of business solutions from one provider.
“My journey with Isys started over 27 years ago. I’m really excited to be joining Brendan and the team as part of the Access ERP business.”
Kings added: “Becoming part of The Access Group gives Isys many exciting opportunities. Our clients will see increased investment and development that will see our products flourish.”
