Fort Collins company DataSplice sold to Prometheus

FORT COLLINS — DataSplice LLC, a Fort Collins-based company, has been purchased by Prometheus Group, a provider of software to heavy-equipment operators for optimizing plant-maintenance operations. Prometheus Group, based in Raleigh, N.C., also acquired Canadian company Solufy Information Technologies Inc.

DataSplice specializes in IBM’s Maximo enterprise asset management system, and Solufy provides a suite of planning and scheduling applications for EAM.

“Solufy and DataSplice each combine deep domain expertise — Solufy in maintenance planning and scheduling and DataSplice in mobile work execution — with an established presence in the Maximo ecosystem,” Eric Huang, founder and CEO of Prometheus Group, said in a prepared statement. “These acquisitions continue to build on our strategy of providing a completely unified planning, scheduling and work execution platform for plant maintenance operations across any technology environment.”

“Maximo has one of the largest customer bases in the EAM market and we’re excited to offer an integrated suite of applications on a common platform to help companies maximize their return on investment from their EAM system. Customers will be able to utilize the Prometheus platform to drive operational excellence across all aspects of their plant maintenance operations from routine maintenance through complex shutdowns and turnarounds” said Jeff Kinard, Prometheus Group’s vice president of professional services.

The combined company will use the Prometheus Group name and will be led by Huang. Mario Boileau, co-founder and CEO of Solufy, and Gerry Lamarche, co-founder and vice president of operations for Solufy, will remain with the company. Scott Kunze, founder and CEO of DataSplice, will also remain with the company as director of mobile — Maximo.

“DataSplice was built around integrating customer systems in a seamless fashion and providing users with intuitive applications to execute work in the field. Prometheus Group shares a similar heritage, which makes the combination a natural continuation of what we’ve built,” Kunze said.

Terms of the acquisitions were not disclosed.
