DME software provider Brightree announces it has acquired privately held mobile delivery and cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider Apacheta Corporation, further expanding the SaaS portfolio of Brightree’s owner, ResMed.
The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Apacheta’s mobile delivery management solution is designed to enable post-acute care equipment providers to automate and streamline delivery operations.
The company and its Media, Pa-based employees will join Brightree, whose platform it has been integrated with since 2015. Brightree will guide the further innovation of Apacheta’s solution and help increase adoption among Brightree customers, notes a media release from Brightree.
“Apacheta solves many of the business challenges HMEs face in managing deliveries, particularly eliminating missing, lost, or incomplete delivery information,” says Brightree CEO Matt Mellott, in the release “It has already helped Brightree customers save significant time and money, and we look forward to investing in its continued innovation and scalability.”
“We’re thrilled to become part of a healthcare leader that shares our mission: leveraging technology to digitally transform field service management and delivery functions providing quantifiable business efficiencies, better customer care, and improved visibility to logistics practices,” states Apacheta CEO Gregg Timmons.
“The HME business is becoming more and more challenging, and like Apacheta, Brightree offers software solutions that eliminate complexity in order to increase productivity,” Timmons adds. “The entire Apacheta team and I look forward to becoming part of the Brightree/ResMed family.”
Apacheta is Brightree’s third acquisition in the past 18 months, following Conduit Technology, which enhances HMEs’ custom forms and workflow solutions, and AllCall Connect, providing live call center services. Both of these additions strengthen Brightree’s offerings to HMEs, while ResMed evaluates where else they may be integrated within its larger SaaS ecosystem, according to the release.
“Adding a reliable market-tested mobile delivery platform to ResMed’s SaaS portfolio helps our customers work more seamlessly and provide a better experience for their patients,” said ResMed SaaS President Raj Sodhi, in the release. “In addition to driving further innovation of this platform, we will explore bringing this solution to other care settings and platforms that would benefit by having a mobile delivery solution.”
