Kofile, a company focused on local government services, has acquired Data Preservation Solutions Inc., a provider of document restoration, preservation, indexing, and imaging services for local governments throughout Texas.

“The next twenty years will be the most important time in the history of document preservation and access,” says Michael Crosno, CEO of Kofile. “The accelerated pace of digital transformation, the shifting expectations of employees and constituents alike, and an increasingly complex cyber security landscape have all converged to present challenges, but also opportunities. Our acquisition of DPS enables us to rise to meet these challenges and develop creative solutions that will preserve the legacy of our government partners for hundreds of years to come.”

“In evaluating Kofile, we found a new management team that has re-committed the organization to putting the customer first in everything they do,” said Brian Rathe, owner and president of DPS. “They share our belief that it is paramount to build trust with customers by going above and beyond what’s expected. We’re confident that we’re partnering with an organization that will continue the legacy of what we’ve built while preserving the history of local governments across the U.S.”

“Accelerating change has made accelerated innovation a necessity,” says Jonathan Mohn, president, Kofile Services. “While technology use in the private sector has traditionally outpaced Government’s use, our vision for the future is different. Meeting the standards for tech-enabled services is not enough. We want to set the standards and we’re moving quickly to make that a reality. This acquisition underscores our commitment to leading this market and providing our customers with the highest-quality products and services possible.”
