TORONTO, ON, July 9, 2018 – Constellation Software Inc. (TSX: CSU) announced today that it has purchased 100% of c-Systems Software Inc.’s shares through its Perseus division. The acquisition further expands Constellation’s presence in the dealership management software market.

Headquartered in Arlington, Texas, with customers across the United States and Canada, c-Systems is a leading provider of business system software to outdoor power equipment (OPE) dealers in North America.

“c-Systems will join Constellation’s Dealership Software Group, which is comprised of several leading software products designed specifically for dealerships,” said Daniel Zinman, the Vice President of Constellation’s Dealership Software Group. “With its addition, over 5,000 dealerships across North America and the United Kingdom will be able to use one or more of our software products to run their business. We welcome the employees, customers and products of c-Systems to the Constellation family.”

As part of the acquisition, founding partners Steven Stinson and Jim Phelan will be retiring from the business. Ideal Software’s General Manager Ajay Thakur, will be appointed as the executive General Manager in charge of both businesses units.

“c-Systems and Constellation’s Ideal Software are the two leading software brands for OPE dealers,” said Thakur. “Together these software brands represent, by far, the largest and most capable dealer network in the industry. Through our combined efforts, we are excited to provide innovation, new capabilities and operational efficiencies to these dealers, so they can continue to successfully differentiate themselves from big-box retailers.”

What our customer's have to say about us:

"I like how Infinity fits our business and I feel that it was designed for what we do in our business, which is OPE.  I also liked that it was full of features and had in-house employee training as well.  Your system was designed with OPE in mind and wasn’t just a simple, generic solution for our company."

Phelp’s Outdoor Power Equipment, Fritz Holzer – General Manager


“If another dealer were to ask me about business management systems, I would absolutely recommend c-Systems.  I’d tell them, ‘Buy it.  It’s money well spent.’  Actually we’ve already promoted c-Systems and helped someone buy your system.”

Burleson Outdoor Power Equipment, Wayne Shamblin – Owner


"Ten years ago, my accountant unexpectedly passed away on Memorial Day weekend.  He was a main user of the system at our business and I felt lost without him.  But for two weeks straight after the incident, I received outstanding help from your support.  They helped me complete all of my daily tasks and answered any questions I had.  I felt that they were very understanding and patient, as well as knowledgeable and nice. c-Systems support is Bar-None the best support I’ve seen."

Chad Little Outdoor Power Equipment, Bruce Weeks


"Not having a separate accounting software and business system has helped a lot and made it easier to manage my business.  Having my system all in one place has helped with entry errors, managing my wholegoods, and overall has made my life a lot easier.

The Automated Warranty Claims feature saves a lot of time and keeps us from having to enter the information twice.  Learning about new lines coming out for this feature is great to hear and makes me excited!

I love the Product Registrations feature."

Bossier Power Equipment, Charlie Williamson – Owner 


"I did research before I started looking for a new business system partner, and saw that most of the best dealers in the country, were using c-Systems Infinity.  After talking to a lot of them, I knew that for me to grow my business to another level, I would need a system and partner like c-Systems."

Clay’s Power Equipment, Jerry Clay – Owner
