Isys Interactive Systems, which supplies management software solutions for a range of industries, has been sold.

The Access Group has announced it has acquired the Derby firm, whose software supports a range of industries throughout waste management, aggregate and material sales to dairy and food services.

Isys, which also has a base in Horsham, was founded in 1979 with the aim of providing administrative and back-office solutions across.

It recently added web and mobile solutions to its portfolio to support its growing customer base.

As part of the deal, Richard Bowers, managing director, and Chris Kings, sales director, will be staying on at Access as members of the leadership team.

Richard said: “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.”

Chris said: “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.”

The Access Group is a leading provider of business management software to mid-market organisations.

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.”

Isys was advised on the deal by Roger Buckley, a partner at BDO.

He said: “We’re delighted to have advised the shareholders of Isys Interactive Systems on a deal that brings together two complementary businesses that have invested significantly in recent years in the design and development of market-leading software solutions, targeting niche and highly specialised sectors.

“Operationally, Isys complements the Access portfolio of software in the construction and hospitality sectors and extends the range of services to their existing customer base.

“The combined business is committed to the continued development of the team and software to further the momentum shown by both companies.”
