TEAM Software Acquires Templa to Strengthen Offering to U.K. and Australian Cleaning Markets
Templa, the software company behind TemplaCMS® and the leading financial contract management system for cleaning contractors in the United Kingdom and Australia, has been acquired by Innovise, the U.K. subsidiary of TEAM Software. TEAM is the global technology leader specialising in software for security guarding, cleaning and facilities management businesses.
The acquisition brings together the two U.K. 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 U.K. and Australia.
Innovise is the U.K. arm of TEAM Software, a technology company 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 U.K. and Ireland, North America and Australia.
“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 U.K. and Australia, and we will work together to broaden this globally while evolving modernizing the TemplaCMS technology,” said Mike Taylor, Innovise President and TEAM Software Chief Strategy Officer.
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.
“After several decades of successful growth as an independent business, we are excited to be joining forces with Innovise and TEAM software,” said Stoor. “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.”
