PROFITsystems, Inc., the leading retail management and accounting software provider for the furniture industry, has acquired EasyChair Software, a competing firm. EasyChair is located in Minneapolis, MN and has been in business since 1986.
The acquisition strengthens PROFITsystems’ status as the premier provider of revenue-enhancing software for the home goods industry. Both PROFITsystems and EasyChair clients will benefit from combining EasyChair’s expertise and unique features with PROFITsystems’ technological leadership and corporate strength.
The new entity is poised to improve customer service levels for all clients and to reduce operating costs while growing sales. “Nothing is more important to us or more valuable to our continued success than the strong relationship we have with our customers,” said PROFITsystems President Jeff Niskern. “This transaction will give our clients, old and new, even better technology and service to help them make money.”
PROFITsystems’ financial position is strengthened by both external and internal investors. The Riverside Company, a two billion dollar firm, is focused on PROFITsystems’ position as the leading solutions provider to home goods retailers around the world.
