Ingentive Successfully Acquires the business of Software Solved to Expand Digital Transformation Capabilities
In a strategic move to enhance its digital transformation services, Ingentive is pleased to announce the acquisition of the business of Software Solved, a leading UK-based digital transformation specialist. Known for its expertise in Pro Code and Big Data solutions, predominantly using Microsoft technology, Software Solved is set to bring a new dimension to Ingentive’s existing capabilities.
Andrea Bright, CEO of Ingentive, expressed her enthusiasm about the acquisition: “This union brings together Ingentive’s strengths in Low Code, Modern Work, Security, AI, and Cloud capabilities with Software Solved’s specialised Pro Code, Big Data, and AI expertise. This synergy is pivotal in fortifying our position as a comprehensive digital transformation partner.”
Founded in 2019 under the name Akari Solutions, Ingentive was later acquired by Woolf Partners in early 2023. The company underwent a rebranding in October 2023, marking a significant expansion in its consulting, implementation, and managed services across various Microsoft Digital Transformation technologies.
As part of this acquisition, Thomas Coles, Chairman and Founder of Software Solved, Matt Portt, CFO and Chris Rhodes, NED will be stepping down. Gareth Mapp, the acting CEO and CRO of Software Solved, will join Ingentive’s leadership team, leading the Pro Code and Big Data sales division.
Reflecting on the acquisition, Andrea Bright commented, “Observing Gareth and Thomas build a highly esteemed technology firm, we realised their expertise would greatly complement and extend our offerings. This strategic investment not only brings fresh talent and innovative ideas but also bolsters our ever-expanding portfolio.”
Gareth Mapp added, “Merging our businesses is a natural progression. Andrea’s leadership and the collective experience of her team will be instrumental in driving the growth of our combined enterprise to new heights.”
Ingentive’s future strategy includes further acquisitions and significant investments in organic growth, cementing its commitment to being at the forefront of digital transformation services.
The acquisition process was facilitated by IT ExchangeNet, a global leader in mid-market mergers and acquisitions, specialising in DevOps, MSPs, MSSPs, and key channel partners including Microsoft, Oracle, Salesforce, and ServiceNow.
