MPulse Software announced its parent company, JDM Technology Group, has acquired East Greenwich, RI–based EPAC Software Technologies, provider of award-winning CMMS and EAM software. The transaction closed as of June 28, 2019, after approval by EPAC’s founders and owners, C. Paul Oberg and Robert B. Lane.
EPAC Software Technologies has been providing maintenance software since 1999. The EPAC team has collectively been involved in the maintenance business for 75 years working in plants, facilities, or government. With these deep-roots in the maintenance business, the EPAC team knows and understands the complex requirements of today’s maintenance technicians. The acquisition strengthens the JDM Technology Group with a broader offering of maintenance management software solutions to its global customer base.
“We are pleased to have found a good home for the EPAC business moving forward,” said C. Paul Oberg, co-founder of EPAC. “EPAC has been committed to serving our customers with the best software solutions for maintenance since 1999. Joining the JDM Group represents a great opportunity for our customers and employees, with access to additional resources, technology, and expanded global footprint to ensure the continued growth and longevity of the business.”
Having acquired numerous companies since 2004, the JDM Technology Group has established a proven strategy for integrating acquired companies into its existing infrastructure. EPAC will continue to operate as a separate brand with its existing staff, while combining with the resources of MPulse Software, a JDM Technology Group company based in Eugene, OR, with which EPAC shares a similar customer and product focus. Jason Johnson, President of MPulse Software, will lead EPAC and oversee day-to-day operations of both EPAC and MPulse. C. Paul Oberg will continue with the company during the transition period in a consulting and advisory capacity.
“Our strategy to Buy and Build great software businesses ensures that customers will have access to the best technology globally. In addition, by retaining the EPAC staff and organization, customers will continue to receive service and support from the same people they are used to,” said David McFarlane, Vice-President of Corporate Development of the JDM Technology Group. “We do not end-of-life products, allowing customers to continue use of their preferred software. The JDM Group’s long-term focus in conjunction with our Buy and Build strategy continues to make us a great home for vertical market software companies focused on the construction industry and built environment.”
MPulse Software welcomes EPAC to the JDM family.
