Mapal Group, a European developer and provider of hospitality management software solutions, has acquired of Easilys, a multi-site restaurant and kitchen management software provider based in France with offices in Paris, Geneva and Barcelona.
The acquisition is the latest in a series of investments by Mapal in complementary hospitality technologies, with a view to combining services to create a back of house multi-site operating system for the hospitality sector. This transaction follows the acquisition of UK-based Flow Hospitality Training in December 2019, US-headquartered Cloud Reputation in 2020 and Sweden-based GetCompliant earlier this year.
Jorge Lurueña, Founder and CEO of MAPAL, said, “Welcoming Easilys to the MAPAL Group family is very exciting, as we believe it represents one of the missing pieces of our puzzle in offering a full-suite of management tools to the hospitality sector. While we have been active in France for a while, we are excited to grow our presence in the country and use it as a base to grow in neighbouring countries also.”
Emmanuel Grelaud, CEO and Co-Founder of Easilys added, “Since first meeting the MAPAL team and learning of their vision of an integrated management solution encompassing all the tools a restaurateur needs, I believed it would be a good partnership. In our view, this means great opportunities for our customers, from complementary applications within the same operating system provided by an international partner they can expand with. For us, we believe it is an opportunity for growth across Europe and Latin America.”
Mapal Group is backed by funds advised by PSG, a growth equity firm partnering with middle-market software and technology-enabled services companies. PSG invested in Mapal Software in 2019.
