accesso/Lo-Q continues expansion with acquisition of Siriusware

accesso/Lo-Q continues expansion with acquisition of Siriusware
January 31, 2014

Attractions technology solutions leader accesso Technology Group plc has announced the acquisition of Siriusware.

The acquisition of Siriusware reinforces accesso's presence in the theme park and attractions industry, expands its presence within the cultural attractions segment and allows the company to break into the ski market.

Explaining the acquisition, accesso Chief Executive Tom Burnet stated "this acquisition aligns two like-minded teams and two highly complementary product offerings that, together, can unlock greater value in traditional markets and in new ones.

"Siriusware's solutions expand our capabilities and allow us to offer support and innovation across multiple touch points in a guest's leisure journey from ticketing and queuing to payments and point of sale."

The move is in line with a growth strategy that, in December 2012, saw Lo-Q acquire accesso (changing the name of the new group to accesso in November 2013) and now brings a strengthened position in terms of integrated technology for the 'guest journey' in the attractions industry but also allows expansion into the ski sector.

Siriusware is a leading North American provider of ticketing and point-of-sale (POS) software and hardware solutions to the leisure industry. From a strong base servicing more than 130 ski resorts from North America to New Zealand, Siriusware has diversified recently to include more than 120 clients across the attractions industry. The company's products include ticketing, membership, retail, food and beverage, group scheduling, reservations and other solutions through a single integrated platform.

accesso Chief Operating Officer for North America and Europe Steve Brown added "Siriusware is a company we admire for the quality of their solutions and, importantly, their deep commitment to customer service which is core to accesso's operating philosophy.

"We are thrilled to have the Siriusware product and team join our organization. Operators are in search of comprehensive solutions that can handle all facets of their business and with Siriusware onboard, accesso can more readily deliver a broader offering across ticketing, queuing, payment processing and point of sale."

Under terms of the acquisition, Siriusware will retain its New Mexico, USA headquarters and Mark Danemann, Siriusware founder, will serve as President of the Siriusware division of the company. All 60 Siriusware employees will continue to work for the company.
