Maxus, based in Melbourne, is a distributor that has been supplying and supporting Inmagic solutions since 1984, and has consistently been one of Inmagic's major resellers.
"I have known Lucidea's CEO, Ron Aspe, for many years, and I am confident Maxus could not be in better hands," said Norma Tovey, Maxus' Managing Director. "I believe that because of their investment in and active commitment to Inmagic customers and products, Lucidea is the best company to look after Maxus' clients. In addition, Ron and I share the same values with regard to client service, and to providing innovative KM and library technology, so I know the Maxus business including its customers and employees will be well cared for.
"I feel privileged that Lucidea has been entrusted with the continuing success of Maxus. With Norma advising us as a Director of Lucidea Australia, Ltd., Maxus clients can rest assured that Lucidea will continue to provide the support they have come to rely upon," said Ron Aspe, founder and CEO of Lucidea. "We are delighted to welcome Maxus staff and clients to the Lucidea family."
The acquisition is effective immediately, and Maxus employees will continue working with the company in Melbourne.
