Verisae, Inc. ("Verisae"), the leading global provider of the Connected
Facility - the integrated software platform that combines maintenance,
machine to machine monitoring, energy, and sustainability software
solutions into one - today announced the signing of a definitive
agreement to acquire ViryaNet (News - Alert) Ltd. (OTC QB: VRYAF) ("ViryaNet").
Headquartered in Westborough, MA, ViryaNet's mobile workforce software
solutions optimize and allow for the continuous improvement of service
processes for companies with mobile workforces.
"ViryaNet is a strategic acquisition to Verisae's family of cloud
software products," stated Jerry Dolinsky, Chief Executive Officer of
Verisae. "Our customers require a mixed model of leveraging internal and
external mobile workforces to service their facilities and assets. By
adding ViryaNet's comprehensive mobile workforce capability to our
end-to-end facility platform, our customers will have the ability to
improve the productivity of their mobile workforce."
Currently, over 35,000 service companies use Verisae's SaaS (News - Alert) software
when servicing Verisae's customers in more than 20 countries. The
acquisition of ViryaNet will enable Verisae to offer its mobile
workforce capability to those service companies as well as to Verisae's
customers, enabling both service companies and facility owners to
improve their efficiencies and lower the cost of delivering service.
Combining Verisae's deep-rooted domain in cloud software for asset
management, energy, sustainability, and machine to machine monitoring
with ViryaNet's mobile workforce solutions will allow the combined
companies to better understand and support the needs of the market
throughout the entire spectrum of the service supply chain. Verisae will
continue the growth in its integrated solution, and is uniquely
positioned in its ability to integrate traditionally siloed data across
distributed facilities into its single solution. The company plans to
continue developing new capabilities ahead of the market and on behalf
of ViryaNet and Verisae customers alike.
"The acquisition is an exciting opportunity to continue our mobile
workforce management journey and deliver innovative solutions that
empower service organizations to achieve their business goals," stated
Memy Ish-Shalom, President and Chief Executive Officer of ViryaNet.
"Together with Verisae we are better positioned to accelerate the
delivery of our joint vision, which will benefit our employees,
customers, and future growth."
ViryaNet will become a strategic business unit of Verisae. The ViryaNet
team will stay intact, and its solutions and development resources will
be expanded. Subject toregulatory approvals, Verisae expects the
transaction to close in fiscal Q3 of 2014.
