We are happy to announce that Ideal Computer Systems’ parent company, Constellation Software Inc., has purchased 100% of c-Systems Software Inc.’s shares through its Perseus division.

Headquartered in Arlington, Texas, with customers across the United States and Canada, c-Systems will join Constellation’s Dealership Software Group, which also houses Ideal and other dealership-focused software businesses. Just like Ideal, c-Systems is a business software provider for outdoor power equipment (OPE) dealers in North America.

“With its addition, over 5,000 dealerships across North America and the United Kingdom will be able to use one or more of our software products to run their business,” said Daniel Zinman, the Vice President of Constellation’s Dealership Software Group. “We welcome the employees, customers and products of c-Systems to the Constellation family.”

As part of the acquisition, founding partners Steven Stinson and Jim Phelan will be retiring from the business.

“c-Systems and Ideal Software are the two leading software brands for OPE dealers,” said Ajay Thakur, Ideal Software’s General Manager. “Together these software brands represent, by far, the largest and most capable dealer network in the industry. Through our combined efforts, we are excited to provide innovation, new capabilities and operational efficiencies to these dealers, so they can continue to successfully differentiate themselves from big-box retailers.”
