Templa, the software company behind TemplaCMS and a leading financial contract management system for cleaning contractors in the UK and Australia, has been acquired by Innovise.
Innovise is the UK arm of TEAM Software, a technology company specialising in software for security guarding, cleaning and facilities management businesses with customers on five continents and approximately one million users under management. The combined group supports many of the leading cleaning and security companies in the UK and Ireland, North America and Australia.
The acquisition brings together the two UK market leaders in the cleaning sector: Innovise with its trusted workforce management software and Templa with its fully integrated financial contract management software. The combination creates a significant offering for cleaning and facilities management businesses, primarily in the UK and Australia.
Commenting on the acquisition, Innovise Managing Director Graeme Hughes said: “Our mission is to extend our offering in the rest of the world to mirror the deep financial management capabilities provided by WinTeam to our North American customers. Adding TemplaCMS to the Innovise portfolio provides an immediate solution for our customers in the UK and Australia, and we will work together to broaden this globally while evolving modernising the TemplaCMS technology.”
The new partnership will mean that clients of both Templa and Innovise benefit from enhanced technology expertise, improved product scope and global scale.
As part of the partnership, Rick Stoor, Templa Managing Director, has joined the Innovise senior leadership team. Stoor said: “After several decades of successful growth as an independent business, we are excited to be joining forces with Innovise and TEAM software. This is essentially a merger of committed, ambitious technology companies who want to serve the cleaning industry more effectively.
“We are excited to work alongside our new colleagues at Innovise and TEAM to set the standard for world-class solutions in our target markets globally.”
