Intelligent Software Solutions Acquires Xpect Software
Acquisition Will Expand ISS’ Reach Into New Countries And Markets
Xpect Software, based in Mount Laurel, New Jersey, was founded in 2004, and provides a wide range of data analysis and management solutions to federal, state and local governments across 22 countries. The company’s software assists users in identifying, collating, analyzing, visualizing and exploiting any type of information. Its principal product, Dfuze®, has evolved into the de-facto global standard for Counter Improvised Explosive Devices (C-IED), Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) and counterterrorism operations around the world.
The acquisition of the Dfuze product suite and other Xpect assets help ISS expand into new international markets in its core business areas. The Dfuze family of products complements ISS’ flagship products WebTAS® and CIDNE®, both used by defense and security agencies for reporting and analysis. It allows the company to expand its range of offerings in the law enforcement and public safety arenas with the combined expertise of the ISS and Xpect teams.
“The move into new markets and the ability to leverage Xpect’s sales model are very compelling benefits for ISS,” said Jay Jesse, chief executive officer, ISS. “We are taking our current business, which is very vibrant and growing steadily, and blending it with new capabilities both in terms of verticals and international footprint. It is a tremendously exciting event in the history of ISS.”
“Xpect sees this acquisition as an opportunity to instantly enhance the service and product range to our customers,” said Laine Napier, president, Xpect. “We have received acquisition offers in the past but the criterion was always to grow our vision and enrich our customer base with quality products. The capabilities of the two companies together provide a fabulous opportunity to realize this vision.”
Napier will be joining ISS as vice president of a new Xpect Solutions Division.
The acquisition was completed earlier this month.
