The Access Group has bought EasyBuild, a Borehamwood-based organisation offering ERP software designed to meet the specific needs of the construction sector.  

Building on the acquisition of ConQuest in 2018, the addition of EasyBuild provides Access with "the most comprehensive set of software solutions in this industry," according to a statement.

EasyBuild was founded in 1999 with the aim of providing ERP software to meet the diverse needs of the sector, covering Main Contractors, Civils, Demolition and Concrete Frame, Interior Fit Out, Roofing and Cladding, Joinery, Rail, Highways and Utilities – and providing the critical tools needed to manage projects in a timely and efficient manner.   

EasyBuild has grown significantly in the last five years since Carol Massay joined as CEO, winning awards for their software every year over the last four years.  

Brendan Flattery, Managing Director of Access ERP, said since ConQuest was acquired, it has been looking for other complementary solutions to expand its offering, primarily in the UK, but also Europe.  

"With their range of ERP solutions, specifically designed for the complex project management needs of this sector, EasyBuild was an obvious choice. We are really excited to be welcoming Carol and the whole EasyBuild team into the Access Group.”  

Massay said the deal gives EasyBuild a new level of expertise in the provision of integrated software solutions, the chance to accelerate its product development and customers the opportunity to explore a wider range of business solutions from one provider.  

"It has been my personal ambition to help transform the sector and deliver the message to embrace technology to promote a more efficient way of working. My journey continues now as part of The Access Group, and I’m really excited to be joining Brendan and the team as part of the Access ERP business."
