Vancouver’s Clevest has been acquired by Chicago’s IFS. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
Clevest is a leader in mobile workforce management for energy and water utilities and has a long and successful track record of creating, deploying and supporting solutions around the world. Over 240 electric, gas and water utilities have chosen Clevest, from some of the world’s largest to many rural electric cooperatives.
Thomas Ligocki, CEO and founder of Clevest noted, “To accelerate the global growth of the company I founded almost 15 years ago, I found in IFS the perfect strategic partner. By bringing together these two companies we will undoubtedly be able to offer the best Field Service Management, Mobile Workforce Management and Advanced Network Deployment solutions on the market. It also brings new opportunities and clear benefits to Clevest partners and customers as they seek new ways to scale globally.”
Announced this week, the acquisition extends IFS’s leadership in service management solutions with Clevest’s proven utilities domain expertise, market-leading capabilities and impressive international blue-chip client bases.
“Clevest demonstrates a clear commitment to delivering value for its customers in a key industry vertical for us,” commented IFS CEO, Darren Roos. “Clevest is already leveraging technology that brings unique business value to its customers, including Smart Metering, Smart Networks, Mobile Workforce Management and additional capabilities around optimization of scheduling dispatch-all with the ability to digitize core processes across the use cases that matter most to utilities. I am confident it will add value to what we already do for our customers in this space.”
