Systech buys Apostrophe to get bigger in serialisation

Cloud computingSystech International has acquired Apostrophe Systems, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) and cloud software company, in a move that it says increases its capabilities in the cloud services serialisation market.

The packaging execution system (PES) specialist said that: "for more than six years, customers have run Systech and Apostrophe systems together, making the two companies a natural fit."

Apostrophe Systems president Robert Magee said the company's technology allows customers to deploy RFID and bar-coding solutions quickly in the cloud or on any type of computer or embedded device.

Systech has been building a strong position in the emerging market for consumer product serialisation in recent years, and has already implemented dozens of coding projects in the pharmaceutical sector.

Last year, the company forged a partnership with Zetes to offer European pharmaceutical manufacturers serialisation systems in light of national initiatives in France and Turkey and the upcoming requirements for coding at the EU level.

In addition, Systech recently opened a dedicated centre at its European headquarters in Brussels, providing testing/staging areas, demonstration space and training facility for drugmakers which are implementing serialisation.

"Apostrophe Systems' strength in cloud services, combined with [our] leading PES and serialisation solutions, creates new opportunities for our companies and enables us to serve the marketplace even more effectively," said David Harty, Systech's ice president.

Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
