Providence Strategic Growth-Backed Imaweb/ IDF Group Completes Acquisition of TMS-Soft
Imaweb/ IDF Group, a leading independent provider of customer relationship management (“CRM”) solutions and dealership management systems (“DMS”) for the automotive industry in Europe, today announced that it has completed its acquisition of TMS-Soft, a leading provider of digital car registration workflow software in France. Imaweb/ IDF Group is backed by Providence Strategic Growth (“PSG”), the growth equity affiliate of premier asset management firm Providence Equity Partners (“Providence”). Financial terms were not disclosed.
Founded in 2008, TMS-Soft automates and streamlines processes associated with vehicle registration through its cutting-edge, digital platform. The company is the largest of only three non-governmental organizations authorized to issue vehicle registration credentials under the French system, the système d'immatriculation des véhicules (SIV). TMS-Soft’s team serves over 3,700 clients ranging from used car dealerships, auto centers, and online car sales marketplaces.
Patrick Prajs, CEO of Imaweb/ IDF Group, said, “Our acquisition of TMS-Soft will enable us to offer clients a highly valuable add-on to their existing suite of Imaweb/IDF Group products, which are centered around our core CRM and DMS products. We will also be able to reach a broader base of customers – especially used-car dealerships – across all our markets. Today’s announcement is a testament of the momentum we have sustained since partnering with PSG, and we are optimistic about the road ahead. We are pleased to welcome the TMS-Soft team to our family and look forward to working together as we solidify our position as a leading European provider of CRM, DMS, and now digital workflow solutions for the automotive industry in Europe.”
Lionel Amrouche, Founder and CEO of TMS-Soft, said, “This transaction underscores the strength of the TMS-Soft brand and importance of our offering. We are excited for the future and look forward to growing the business under the Imaweb/ IDF Group umbrella.”
Since its formation following PSG’s investment in September 2019, Imaweb/ IDF Group has become one of Europe’s premier full-service providers of automotive CRM, DMS and other digital solutions. In the last 12 months, Imaweb/ IDF Group has also completed the acquisitions of ITMotive, a Netherlands-based distributor and servicer of DMS in the Benelux region, and Serinfer, the computer software segment of the Alvariño Group, a Spanish developer, distributor and supplier of DMS.
