In mid July Made2Manage Systems Inc. (Indianapolis), a provider of enterprise software and services, acquired Seattle-based Intuitive Manufacturing Systems , a provider of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for discrete manufacturers.
Backed by investors Battery Ventures and Thoma Cressey Equity Partners, this is the sixth acquisition by Made2Manage since it was taken private in August 2003. The acquisition will reportedly enhance the company’s portfolio of ERP products focused on the manufacturing sector and reaffirms its commitment to the small and midsize manufacturing space.
“I’m thrilled to bring two very strong companies together,” said Jeff Tognoni, CEO of Made2Manage Systems. “The Intuitive product line will become a sister product line to the Made2Manage product line, allowing us to serve an even broader share of discrete manufacturers in the small and midsize enterprise market.”
Intuitive’s headquarters in Seattle will remain open to serve west coast customers of both organizations.
