Ben Dorks

Nottingham-based Ideagen, a software solutions company, has expanded its Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS) offerings by acquiring the Australian company Lucidity.

The deal marks Ideagen’s second Australian acquisition in 2023, after OnePlace Solutions in May.

With this acquisition, Ideagen has invested approximately £78m in Australian software businesses.

This also marks the third addition to Ideagen’s EHS solutions in the past year, following the acquisitions of DevonWay last month and ProcessMAP in 2022.

Ideagen CEO, Ben Dorks, said: “Australia is a hot bed of good, innovative tech businesses and Lucidity is a great example of this – a class-leading solution offering customers depth of functionality and scalability to meet their EHS and quality needs.

“The addition of Lucidity builds our footprint and increases the support we can offer to regulated industries in that region, and we are looking forward to amplifying that great tech globally.”
