Civica has acquired specialist software provider Abritas

The Civica Group has announced that Civica UK, the company’s wholly owned subsidiary, has acquired specialist software provider Abritas.
Based in Reading, Abritas provides web-based application software and related services for the UK social housing sector. Its software-as-a-service solutions are used by more than 170 local authorities and housing associations to provide social housing needs, options and lettings services for tenants, including an online mutual exchange tool to help tenants swap homes (www.swapandmove.co.uk).
The acquisition brings specialist capability which the Group does not currently offer, which strengthens its capability to support improved and more efficient tenant services and help address homelessness.
Abritas has continued to perform well in 2016, securing agreements with new and existing customers across the country including, among others, Liverpool City Council, Nuneaton & Bedworth Borough Council and Torfaen County Borough Council.
Wayne Story, chief executive of Civica said: “I am delighted to welcome Abritas to the Civica Group. Abritas brings a strong heritage and product set, and the combined business is very well placed to respond to the needs of customers to adapt to a changing social housing landscape.”
