Loughborough software giant expands again with swoop for public and third sector specialist

The Access Group's HQ in Loughborough

The Access Group, the Loughborough provider of business management software, has bought of DutySheet, trading as Assemble and DutySheet, a supplier of cloud-based volunteer management software to charities and public sector organisations.

The business will be incorporated into The Access Group’s non-profit and education division, which has over 10,000 customers.

Simon Baines, managing director of Access non-profit and education, said: “The acquisition of DutySheet Ltd proves once again our dedication to supporting our customers in making a greater impact on their causes, offering end-to-end solutions that improve their core mission and operations, whether that’s greater awareness-raising, increased donations and other fundraising activity, better relationships with their volunteers, or more efficiency.”

Ben Hayes, co-founder of DutySheet, said: “Having met the team at Access we believe we have found a company with a similar ethos to our own and see exciting times ahead for our customers and all the team at DutySheet. We know that the organisations and volunteers that we support will benefit greatly from the broader range of connected solutions they will now have at their disposal through the integration of Assemble with Access Workspace for Charities.”
