EUGENE, OR, April 06, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/
-- MPulse Maintenance Software, a division of SpecTech, Inc., announced today that it has been acquired by JDM Technology Group, a leading provider of software solutions for the global construction industry. As of April 1, 2017, MPulse Maintenance Software became MPulse Software, Inc., a JDM Technology Group company.
The acquisition will position the companies to lead the maintenance management software industry in providing reliable scheduling, tracking, and reporting tools for equipment and facilities maintenance organizations.

"Our new relationship with JDM carries on the legacy of MPulse founders Steve Brous and Gil Achterhof," Johnson said. "Our choice to partner with JDM was based on a mutual commitment to our customers and employees. Our strong presence in the maintenance software industry, coupled with JDM's expertise in the construction industry, will further expand our ability to make maintenance operations more productive and efficient for customers around the world."
"This acquisition strengthens and extends MPulse's ability to provide industry-leading CMMS software products and services to our customers worldwide," said Randall Brous.
