ACI Group, a UK-based distributor specialising in the food, pharmaceutical, and construction industries, has announced its acquisition of software company Oomph Works. It is hoped that this will help ACI Group to ‘support and deliver complete end-to-end visibility in the supply chain’.
Oomph Works, previously operating under the name Go Media, is a developer of business systems based in Wakefield. Established in 2007, it develops systems for SMEs, some of which being in the logistics sector.
The group has explained that the acquisition is part of a strategic move to ‘reduce global bottlenecks and tackle increased costs’. It considers the supply chains in the aforementioned markets to be ‘antiquated’, and hopes that, through the implementation of innovative software, ACI Group can bring these up to modern standards.
Karsten Smet, ACI Group’s Director, said: “The extraordinary challenges of the last few years have shown us why access to real-time, high-quality data – and knowing exactly what to do with it – is the key to solving complexities in the supply chain.”
