    ARCOS acquires utility services division of Macrosoft


    July 31, 2017 - ARCOS

     

      ARCOS® LLC has acquired the utility services division of Parsippany, N.J.-based Macrosoft, including the New Jersey company’s Resources on-Demand (RoD) software and its weather and utility news portal named Outagecentral.com.

      “Macrosoft’s utility division aligns with how we help utilities across North America locate, assign and
      track crews and resources,” says Bruce Duff, chief executive officer of ARCOS. “Our mission is giving any
      size utility the technology solutions to respond to events, restore service safely and report on the
      outcome. Macrosoft’s utility division adds to the ARCOS solution platform for resource management
      that enables utilities to manage events large and small that occur daily.”

      Resources on-Demand customers will continue to receive support and maintenance for their product
      from ARCOS.  Jason Singer, director of Macrosoft’s Utility Services Division, will join the ARCOS team as
      director of resource management services along with those who developed and support the Resources
      on-Demand product.

      “The RoD development and support team are excited to become employees of ARCOS,” says Singer.
      “The combination of Macrosoft’s utility services division and ARCOS is well positioned to lead the utility
      industry in providing state-of-the-art resource management solutions.”

      Macrosoft’s Resources on-Demand software tracks and supports logistics requests during large-scale
      restoration events. ARCOS will draw from the features and functionality of RoD to aid utility managers
      who want to more efficiently link crews with the equipment, lodging and other logistics needed for daily
      work and service restoration in the wake of major events. ARCOS intends to leverage features and
      functionality from Resources on-Demand and ARCOS Crew Manager® to provide enhanced capabilities to
      customers.

      The Macrosoft product complements the ARCOS Resource Management platform, which provides
      solutions for:  automated resource call outs, crew and mutual assistance management, mobile field
      damage assessments, routine field inspections and resource tracking. The ARCOS Resource
      Management platform enables utilities to use one system to manage “blue sky” as well as emergency
      events requiring internal and external resources.

      ARCOS counts more than 130 utilities as customers including America’s top 25 largest electric and gas
      utilities that impact 87 percent of all U.S. electric consumers.
