The Access Group has acquired ERP software specialist, EasyBuild to secure a market-leading position in the provision of software and services to the construction sector
Building on the acquisition of ConQuest in 2018, the addition of EasyBuild provides Access with a comprehensive set of software solutions.
EasyBuild was founded in 1999 with the aim of providing ERP software to meet the specific needs of this complex sector, including main contractors, civils, demolition and concrete frame, interior fit out, roofing and cladding, joinery, rail, highways and utilities – providing the critical tools needed to manage projects in a timely and efficient manner.
EasyBuild’s CEO, Carol Massay, brings over 30 years’ experience working within the construction industry. Starting with one of the top 10 house builders, Massay continued her journey with an established Irish-based civil engineering and building contractor. With this experience, she moved into construction technology where she has helped drive the message to embrace technology to promote a more efficient way of working within the sector.
EasyBuild has grown significantly in the last five years, winning awards for their software every year over the last four years.
‘A new level of expertise in integrated software solutions’
Brendan Flattery, managing director of Access ERP, commented: “The Access ERP business already has a strong footprint in the construction sector serving over 1,000 Access customers.
“Since the acquisition of ConQuest in 2018, we’ve been looking for other complementary solutions to expand our offering, primarily in the UK, but with an eye towards Europe.
“With their range of ERP solutions, specifically designed for the complex project management needs of this sector, EasyBuild was an obvious choice.
“We are really excited to be welcoming Carol and the whole EasyBuild team into the Access Group.”
Carol Massay, CEO of EasyBuild, added: “Joining Access gives EasyBuild a new level of expertise in the provision of integrated software solutions, an acceleration of our product development and gives our customers the opportunity to explore a wider range of business solutions from one provider.
“My journey in construction started over 30 years ago, and for the last 18 years I’ve focused on construction technology. It has been my personal ambition to help transform the sector and deliver the message to embrace technology to promote a more efficient way of working.
“My journey continues now as part of The Access Group, and I’m really excited to be joining Brendan and the team as part of the Access ERP business.”
