Verisae to Acquire ViryaNet: Expands its Capabilities for Mobile Workforce Management

Verisae, Inc. (“Verisae”), the leading global provider of the Connected Facility – the integrated software platform that combines maintenance, machine to machine monitoring, energy, and sustainability software solutions into one – today announced the signing of a definitive agreement to acquire ViryaNet Ltd. (OTC QB: VRYAF) (“ViryaNet”). Headquartered in Westborough, MA, ViryaNet’s mobile workforce software solutions optimize and allow for the continuous improvement of service processes for companies with mobile workforces.

“ViryaNet is a strategic acquisition to Verisae’s family of cloud software products,” stated Jerry Dolinsky, Chief Executive Officer of Verisae. “Our customers require a mixed model of leveraging internal and external mobile workforces to service their facilities and assets. By adding ViryaNet’s comprehensive mobile workforce capability to our end-to-end facility platform, our customers will have the ability to improve the productivity of their mobile workforce.”

Currently, over 35,000 service companies use Verisae’s SaaS software when servicing Verisae’s customers in more than 20 countries. The acquisition of ViryaNet will enable Verisae to offer its mobile workforce capability to those service companies as well as to Verisae’s customers, enabling both service companies and facility owners to improve their efficiencies and lower the cost of delivering service.

Combining Verisae’s deep-rooted domain in cloud software for asset management, energy, sustainability, and machine to machine monitoring with ViryaNet’s mobile workforce solutions will allow the combined companies to better understand and support the needs of the market throughout the entire spectrum of the service supply chain. Verisae will continue the growth in its integrated solution, and is uniquely positioned in its ability to integrate traditionally siloed data across distributed facilities into its single solution. The company plans to continue developing new capabilities ahead of the market and on behalf of ViryaNet and Verisae customers alike.

“The acquisition is an exciting opportunity to continue our mobile workforce management journey and deliver innovative solutions that empower service organizations to achieve their business goals,” stated Memy Ish-Shalom, President and Chief Executive Officer of ViryaNet. “Together with Verisae we are better positioned to accelerate the delivery of our joint vision, which will benefit our employees, customers, and future growth.”

ViryaNet will become a strategic business unit of Verisae. The ViryaNet team will stay intact, and its solutions and development resources will be expanded. Subject to regulatory approvals, Verisae expects the transaction to close in fiscal Q3 of 2014.
