Valsoft Corporation Inc. (“Valsoft”), a Montreal-based company specializing in the acquisition and development of software companies in vertical markets, is pleased to announce the acquisitions of Italy-based MPS Monitor s.r.l and Denmark-based Euroform A/S, two leading developers and providers of Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM) and Managed Print Services SaaS solutions for the print industry.
Valsoft will be entering into the Managed Print Services space by acquiring 100% of both MPS Monitor and Euroform and will be leveraging the leading market positioning, product strength, and expertise of the two combined companies to provide an integrated SaaS offering to Dealers and Managed Print Providers across the world.
“We are very excited to enter the printing management vertical through our acquisition of both EuroForm and MPS Monitor,” said Michael Assi, CEO of Aspire Software, the operating division of Valsoft. “The talented teams, company values, and established position in the market of these great companies combined, will make this a platform acquisition poised for continue future growth and continuous product innovation for years to come.”
The two companies are globally recognized as the providers of leading, innovative, integrated and secure RMM systems available to the print industry, and both have close partnerships and collaborations with all the major players in the printer market.
With these two acquisitions, Valsoft’s entry into the Managed Print Services Vertical will be led by Nicola De Blasi, while maintaining his role as CEO of MPS Monitor, and also taking on the role of CEO of Euroform.
“This is an extremely exciting moment in the history of MPS Monitor and Euroform, our customers and our combined team,” explained De Blasi. “We’re about to embark on a whole new chapter supported by the resources, experience, and global footprint of Valsoft. The timing coincides with growing market demand from dealers and MPS providers for secure, flexible, scalable and sustainable SaaS solutions that provide business intelligence and detailed insights, while also helping to drive down operational costs, and increase the overall security of their print environments.
