LIMERICK, Ireland--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AMCS, a leading global supplier of integrated software and vehicle technology for the waste, recycling and resource industries has today announced the acquisition of US-based SaaS solutions provider for the waste industry, DesertMicro, for an undisclosed sum.
DesertMicro has built up an impressive customer base over the last 20 years. In total, the acquisition will add over 250 customers from across the US and Canada to AMCS’ existing 1600 global customer list. AMCS’ solution portfolio will be further strengthened by DesertMicro’s suite of cloud software designed specifically for the waste and recycling industry, which includes a highly developed and fully-embedded payment channel.
Commenting on the acquisition, AMCS CEO, Jimmy Martin, said;
“The waste and recycling industry is going through a massive transition. Companies are re-positioning themselves in the growing, more circular economy. These organizations also have an increasing appetite to digitalize their business and automate business processes. It requires software companies like AMCS, with a certain scale, to be able to make the investments needed to support this transformation. With the addition of DesertMicro to AMCS, we have the opportunity to further strengthen our global footprint, expand our product portfolio and continue to invest in our state of-the-art AMCS Platform.”
