Verteda Limited acquires Agilysys (Europe) Limited

Xperiology’s good friends Adrian Burns and Trevor Roberts have led the purchase of Agilysys (Europe) to form Verteda Limited.

Verteda Limited acquires Agilysys (Europe) Limited and enters into a multi year Distribution Agreement to resell Agilysys Inc. software applications across UK, EMEA and the sports & entertainment sector internationally.

Verteda Limited, formerly Agilysys (Europe) Ltd, a leading provider of innovative hospitality software solutions and services across EMEA, announced the outright purchase of the existing EMEA business and entry into a multi-year EMEA distribution agreement pursuant to which Verteda will be the exclusive UK distributor of the Agilysys InfoGenesisTM POS, a point- of-sale system; Agilysys Eatec®, an inventory & procurement system; and the Agilysys Workforce Management SolutionTM.

“The purchase of the UK based business by Verteda and entry into a multi-year exclusive distribution agreement is extremely complementary of the Agilysys Inc. strategic direction to optimise Sales and Support of hospitality & retail software solutions internationally,” said Adrian Burns, Verteda Managing Director. “Crucially the service and support we extend to our valued UK and International clients and speed in which we can adapt to geographic needs remains at the heart of all decisions we make. This re- modelled partnership with Agilysys Inc serves existing and prospective customers extremely well”.

Based in Warrington, Cheshire, Vertada is led by the former Agilysys Europe management team of Adrian Burns, Managing Director and Trevor Roberts, Sales Director, who employ a dynamic team of specialist Software & Support Engineers, Developers, Project Managers, Sales and Admin staff. “Our customer list reads like a who’s who of leading, forward thinking innovators across hotels & resorts, Sports & Entertainment venues, restaurant chains and foodservice partners” said Trevor Roberts. “In this fast paced industry where technology, trends and consumer behaviours change rapidly, our solutions and development road-map perfectly align to the positive experiences our customers wish to extend to their guests, whilst supporting the efficiency of their operational processes”.

Jim Dennedy, Agilysys Inc. President and Chief Executive Officer added, “The Verteda team has the experience, commitment to customer service, and necessary local resources and contacts to drive further growth in EMEA and select global markets. We are excited to begin this new partnership and look forward to providing the hospitality industry with innovative software solutions that help them build lasting connections with their guests.”
