In June it acquired the supply chain management technology Vision, which is used in 18 countries, from the Cinram Group.
In October the company bought CoreTrac, which makes CRM and automated sales tracking software specifically for the banking sector in the United States.
That same month Aptean entered the healthcare industry with the acquisition of Medworxx, which develops software for managing patient flow and compliance. It’s used in 350 hospitals globally in countries like the United States, United Kingdom, France, and Canada.
Eaton said that Aptean will be supporting the growth of these companies in the future and aiding their expansion. The company also recently launched new editions of its Onyx CRM software for mobile.
