There is a huge growth opportunity in the health and safety SaaS sector and with our long history of developing SaaS applications there is a great fit between the two companies. We built the original application alongside Tony, the founder and have closely followed their progress over the years.”

“With four SaaS applications already under our management, this deal allows us to expand our portfolio and at the same time, enter an exciting and very important sector in the form of health and safety, one which touches every organisation and business across New Zealand and Australia” – he added.
