The partnership with Octopus means we can accelerate growth of the business across markets, and strengthen our position as a competitive, global player, in the provision of remote workforce management software.
Acquisition of assets, companies, and intellectual property are core to the HAS Technology Group business strategy. Our M&A efforts are global, especially in the following territories: UK, Australasia and United States. HAS Technology Group strongly believes in its ability to leverage its core strengths – developing world class technology solutions, cost effective customer acquisition, a disciplined approach to managing costs and great customer support.
We are a business founded and run by entrepreneurs so can offer a range of deal structures to assist vendors with achieving their exit objectives. You may want to join a larger group as part of your vision to expand your business or you may be seeking an orderly handover to pursue other personal objectives. We don’t have a rigid template that we work to, so are able to construct bespoke structures for each deal. We have significant financial resources to be able to move quickly and deliver the overall transaction.
