US group acquires Solihull infrastructure services firm
Comply Serve, a firm focused on providing software to the rail sector has been acquired by US software group Bentley Systems.
ComplyPro is the core product of Comply Serve and is used on projects such as London’s CrossRail.
The business will continue to be led by its founder Chris Rolison, who founded the firm in 2005, and will operate from its current base on Warwick Road in Solihull.
He said: “My ComplyPro colleagues and I are excited to join Bentley Systems. I have long regarded Bentley’s comprehensive approach to software provision for advancing infrastructure to be where the potential for progressive assurance can be most effectively and timely realised.”
Rolison will also join Bentley’s OpenRail Task Force, which is working on new products for digital rail programmes.
Bhupinder Singh, Bentley’s chief product officer, added: “Users we share with ComplyPro, such as Crossrail, have stressed to us the potential benefits to asset program owners that could result from the integration of their requirements management and compliance management functions within Bentley’s project delivery and asset performance solutions.”
