c-Systems Software, Inc., a leading provider of business management systems for the outdoor power equipment, powersports and agricultural industries, announces the acquisition of Softpower Business Solutions.

The combination of c-Systems and Softpower creates the largest, most technologically advanced business-system vendor in the outdoor power equipment industry.

“Sharing technology, uniting resources and eliminating duplication of effort will produce a company more focused, adept and agile,” c-Systems co-founder, CTO and CFO Jim Phelan said.

Effective April 1, the combined companies will continue their traditions of quality, innovation and industry leadership for the benefit of their current and prospective customers.

“Both companies have a long, proud history of providing the finest dealer management systems and are considered the premier companies in the markets they service,” c-Systems president and co-founder Steven Stinson said.

c-Systems and Softpower have been in the same markets for more than 20 years, creating a great deal of synergy between the two organizations.

“By combining, we are able to create a stronger, more robust, and efficient organization,” Softpower president Bob Senger said.

Beginning in April, c-Systems will rebrand Connecticut-based Softpower’s programs as Softpower by c-Systems and SoftBiz by c-Systems.

“The end result becomes a huge win for both companies, our customer base and the industries we serve,” Phelan said.
