We are excited to announce that inspHire has joined Kerridge Commercial Systems (KCS), a leading supplier of software to wholesalers, merchants and other distributive businesses. Acquiring both inspHire and Current-RMS, provides KCS fantastic opportunities to strengthen two leading hire software providers. We have welcomed the acquisition, as KCS will be investing in the development of our products, as well as maintaining and supporting us in the future. A further key benefit for us is the support KCS will provide around our expansion in the US, UK and Europe, which is very important for us.
Solutions provided by UK-based KCS are used by 15,000 companies worldwide and include fully integrated ERP systems comprising of supply chain management, financial accounting, CRM, warehouse and transport management, eCommerce, ePOS and business intelligence.
inspHire will continue to operate as an independent business unit with the same people, the same management and the same products. However, the acquisition will add value to all stakeholders; our customers, our employees and our investors.
Ian Bendelow, CEO of KCS commented:
“The acquisitions of inspHire and Current-RMS deliver a great opportunity for us to strengthen our presence in the hire software market in the UK, as well as developing further global opportunities in this sector. They are both very high-quality businesses with offerings that are complementary to our own. We’re looking forward to working with their employees and to welcoming them to the KCS family.”
Graham Dobbs, Managing Director at inspHire adds:
“inspHire is the leading rental software provider in the market with aspirations to offer software to a wider rental world. We knew this wouldn’t be easy but was a challenge we welcomed. Joining forces with KCS has made that challenge a lot easier as KCS already have a global footprint which will accelerate dual growth, plus, our two companies complement each other on many different levels. Our customers can look forward to accessing more features and functions from our combined offerings in the near future. We are all very excited at the opportunities this acquisition brings, and we are looking forward to the future with our new home, KCS.”
