Kerridge Commercial Systems (KCS) has completed its acquisition of MAM Software Group (MAM).
With a strong presenece already in the merchant sector, MAM is also a leading global provider of on-premise and cloud-based business management solutions for the automotive parts, tyre and other vertical distribution industries.
Ian Bendelow, CEO of Kerridge Commercial Systems, said: “KCS offers end-to-end ERP solutions including Supply Chain Management, Financial Management, CRM, Warehouse Management, Plant and Hire Management, Transport Management, Business Intelligence, ePOS and more, specifically for the distribution and manufacturing markets. Bringing MAM into the KCS group will strengthen our presence in the automotive aftermarket sector. We believe our broadened set of complementary solutions will allow us to better serve existing customers of both KCS and MAM over the long-term while also providing a very compelling alternative for new customers.”
Bringing MAM into the KCS group will strengthen our presence in the automotive aftermarket sector.
Mike Jamieson, CEO of MAM Software, added: “The completion of this combination marks a significant milestone for both MAM Software and KCS. Working in partnership with KCS will provide MAM with opportunities to more effectively serve its customer base through the deep and broad resources of KCS, which has a strong base of more than 15,000 customers globally. We are confident KCS will be able to enhance MAM’s leadership position in the automotive aftermarket space by leveraging the domain expertise of the KCS organisation. We look forward to an exciting new chapter together as part of the KCS group.”
The move follows the deal last year for Kerridge Commercial Systems to acquire EDP. EDP was subsequently incorporated into the KCS brand, with its Vecta sales analytics and CRM software remaining as a standalone product.
