by Brianna Crandall — November 11, 2019 — iOFFICE, a provider of digital workplace experience solutions, just announced it has acquired Hippo CMMS, a provider of asset and preventive maintenance management software. This move further broadens the scope of iOFFICE’s intelligent cloud-based solutions and expands its digital technology suite to meet the entirety of its customers’ needs for managing the workplace and workforce of tomorrow.
iOFFICE’s acquisition of the Hippo computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) software as a service (SaaS) reinforces its commitment to helping organizations strengthen their investment of their physical assets, drive positive business decisions through data-driven solutions, and continue to simplify and enhance the employee experience.
Founded in 2004 in Winnipeg, Canada, Hippo CMMS has since become a leader in the asset management industry and provides maintenance management software solutions that appeal to any size business. Hippo serves more than 1,200 customers with over 32,000 active users across multiple industries, including Rolls-Royce, the Los Angeles Clippers and Planet Fitness. The company’s software provides essential features that help facilities managers (FMs) manage, organize and track their maintenance operations.
Mark Peterson, chief executive officer (CEO), iOFFICE, stated:
Our acquisition of Hippo brings a true innovator and global asset management leader into the iOFFICE suite of workplace management solutions. The demand for data intelligence has surged in recent years as leaders look to solve issues and plan for their workforce’s future needs. With Hippo’s expertise in maintenance management, our customers will now have access to every possible touchpoint to maintain and manage their workplaces for today and tomorrow.
iOFFICE provides enterprise workplace leaders with the SaaS platform, mobile tools and analytics to simplify facilities management (FM), empower employees and increase workplace productivity. The iOFFICE platform easily connects to the company’s HUMMINGBIRD suite of employee-centric digital workplace solutions, and to the iOFFICE MARKETPLACE, a vetted collection of critical workplace application partners. This allows organizations to optimize their workplace while streamlining their technology stack.
Since the acquisition of iOFFICE by Waud Capital, iOFFICE has seen significant growth with its workplace software solutions. The acquisition of Hippo will continue to support that growth and will enable iOFFICE’s corporate customers to address their expanding workplace, workforce and asset maintenance needs from one cloud-based application.
