To reinforce its status as a leader in digital transformation in the UK construction sector, the Causeway Group has acquired Ermeo.
The Causeway software suite enables construction and industrial companies to improve operational productivity, reduce costs and make better decisions.
Causeway is a supplier to almost every major group and SME in the UK and its clients include ECL Civil Engineering, Kier Highways and Ringway Jacobs which manages the largest motorway contract in the UK.
Ermeo is a SaaS software solution that enables the standardisation and digitalisation of operational processes. The objective is to enhance the core business of field operators by ridding them of unnecessary tasks.
Launched in 2015 by Pierre Joly (CEO), Victor Payan (CPO) and Christophe Joly (COO), Ermeo employs over 30 people and has raised €2.5m from Partech Partners, d'Hi-Inov and Axeleo Capital since its creation. Ermeo has established itself in France as a key solution for companies in the industrial sector to achieve productivity and quality gains by improving the operational efficiency of their technicians. The solution has attracted more than 40 major customers, including SNCF, Total, Eurotunnel, Eiffage and Bouygues.
In an industry where digital transformation is a top priority, this acquisition is a major strategic move for the Causeway Group. Causeway Group. With Ermeo, Causeway will be able to bring even more value to its clients and open up a new market.
Causeway and Ermeo were both born out of an ambition to improve productivity and operational efficiency in sectors where there is a strong underlying need for process digitization and where, historically, the adoption of new technologies has been low. With Ermeo, I am convinced that we will finally be able to provide a complete solution that will enhance the work of field operators.
Phil Brown, Chief Executive Officer of Causeway Group.
When we launched Ermeo, our ambition was to provide operators with a solution allowing to improve their daily lives. We wanted to succeed in putting their activities back at the center of the company's value chain by connecting them to each other. With Causeway we will achieve this goal much faster.
Pierre Joly, ex-CEO of Ermeo
