Agilio Software expands into Europe with acquisition of Netherlands based InterShift Planning B.V.
Agilio Software, a leading provider of dental and primary care software, has acquired InterShift, Netherlands’ leading provider of scheduling software for GPs.
Backed by August Equity, Agilio Software offers software to dental practices, GPs and hospital departments to support the efficient and safe delivery of healthcare, including compliance, HR, rostering, e-learning, appraisals and asset management software. Agilio has over 70,000 dental practitioners and over 4,000 GP practices as customers across the UK.
For over a decade, InterShift has provided the majority of Dutch regions with the software needed to schedule GPs for out of hours care and has extended this capability into helping rapidly growing GP practices schedule their staff. Its software is now critical in the delivery of primary care services across all of the Netherlands. InterShift previously had investment from Greendelta Corporate Investments which has helped fund and support its development to date.
Agilio’s acquisition will provide further backing for the InterShift team and their growth plans, supporting more GPs with the InterShift software, continuing the ongoing product development and offering more of the Agilio products and functionality to customers across the Netherlands.
Dr Sati Sian, Chairman of Agilio Software, said, “the acquisition of InterShift, our sixth since August’s investment in November 2019, is an important step for Agilio into the European market. With our experience and resources, we look forward to having InterShift on board the Agilio journey and to working with the team to deliver future growth across the Dutch market.”
Neil Laycock, CEO of Agilio Software, added, “we are delighted to have InterShift join the Agilio family – Mark, Michel and the InterShift team have built a truly brilliant software offering that serves the Dutch primary care market and supports practices, groups and GPs manage their schedules and work requirements. InterShift’s ethos and offering is highly complementary to that of Agilio, and together we can continue to provide the healthcare markets with market leading software to support their HR, e-learning and compliance needs.”
Mark Poldervaart, Managing Director of InterShift, commented, “we are really looking forward to the next stage of InterShift’s growth as part of the Agilio group. Agilio is a like-minded business with a shared goal to provide the highest quality software to support healthcare professionals, and partnering with them brings us the guidance and resources to offer our customers even greater functionality and products, which we are really excited about.”
