B&W spin-off MCH+ acquired by German software companyPMCS.helpLine Software Group has acquired the software developer MCH+. The dutch company based in Leiden, close to Amsterdam, develops and distributes software designed for organizing and optimizing field service teams. Currently the MCH+ products support 15.000 mobile users. MCH+ was conceived in 2002 by Wilbert Willems and Laszlo Bax together with Hereward Burgers who at the time switched roles from being a senior innovation consultant of the W&W (B&W predecessor based in The Hague, NL) consultancy company to being the CEO of the startup. W&W self-financed the venture for the first few years, securing the first launching customers, creating the product and the full service solutions, and ensuring the required service levels.
By then, MCH+ was a healthy but very small start-up with big ambitions. To finance further growth, mid-2007 the company reached agreement with QAT Investments regarding a 1.8 million euro first round investment. Since then, MCH+ moved on to the next growth step, putting all the structures, tools, people and technologies together to reach a market leader position. B&W congratulates all the key players on the successful deal made and is proud of MCH+ successfully moving into its next growth stage as part of a bigger organisation.
