Thursday 18 July 2019

18 July 2019 - US-based cloud-based business management solutions provider ECi Software Solutions has acquired Spruce Computer Systems Ltd., a UK-based reseller of ECi's Spruce software for managing timber, hardware and building materials businesses in the United Kingdom, the company said.
Spruce Computer Systems Ltd. will become part of ECi's LBM and Hardlines division, led by John Maiuri.
ECi has been selling its merchant software solutions in the United Kingdom for nearly 20 years through its partnership with Spruce Computer Systems Ltd.
The acquisition not only cements that strong relationship, but also creates an official UK presence for ECI's LBMH division and continues ECi's global expansion.
This deal marks the company's second international acquisition this month, coming on the heels of Pacsoft, a provider of inventory management and point of sale software solutions for hardware retail and trade businesses in Australia, which joined ECi on July 1.
The deal closed on July 8, and terms were not disclosed.
ECi Software Solutions provides industry-specific business software solutions and services, focusing on cloud-based technologies.
For 30+ years, ECi has served small to medium-sized manufacturing, wholesale/retail distribution, building and construction, and field service organizations. Privately held, ECi is headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, USA, with offices throughout the US, Canada, Mexico, England, the Netherlands, and Australia.
