The Riverside Company has acquired Oakville, Ontario based iView Systems and added to its Omnigo Software platform. Financial terms were not disclosed.

St. Louis, Missouri based Omnigo Software is a provider of public safety, incident and security management solutions for law enforcement, education, healthcare and other enterprises.

Riverside acquired Omnigo Software in October 2016. iView Systems is the second add-on acquisition for Ominigo Software. Riverside acquired Information Technologies, Inc. of St. Louis, Missouri this year and continues to seek complementary add-on acquisitions for Omnigo Software.

iView Systems is a provider of public safety software solutions within the gaming and hospitality markets, enabling security and surveillance personnel to properly manage their day-to-day responsibilities, respond to incidents as they occur, manage incidents after they occur, and comply with regulatory and internal compliance and reporting requirements.

iView provides best-in-class software that strengthens security measures by mitigating risk and liability through the analysis and reporting of evidence, activities and events while providing a complete audit trail for accountability, compliance and enforcement. iView has developed market leading solutions that enable its customers to manage security, surveillance, risk management and related functions more efficiently and effectively.

“iView has an incredibly strong product offering and is the go-to provider for security and safety software solutions within the gaming and hospitality markets. Through this acquisition, Omnigo Software has extended its market-leading position as a provider of public safety and security management software and services to these key verticals,” said Riverside Managing Partner Loren Schlachet. “We are excited about iView’s strong track record of innovation and we believe the combination of these industry-focused offerings will strengthen both companies and add tremendous value for customers.”

“This acquisition allows Omnigo Software to leverage the strong product offerings of both Omnigo and iView to continue to provide outstanding solutions to all of its customers across the law enforcement, education, healthcare, corporate, gaming and hospitality markets,” said Riverside Partner Joe Lee. “Public safety continues to be top of mind for the employees, students, and visitors of our customers and the combination of Omnigo and iView creates a one-of-a-kind platform that can leverage its unique position to accelerate innovation and fulfill the company’s mission of creating safer tomorrows.”

Working with Schlachet and Lee on the deal for Riverside were Principal Steve Rice, Assistant Vice President Jason Thorn, Operating Partner Jonathan Temple and Finance Director Mark Pigott. Principal Dan Haynes helped secure financing for the deal and Senior Associate Stephen O’Hara sourced the deal for the firm.

Deepath Capital Management provided debt financing for the transaction. Jones Day and Cassels Brock provided legal counsel, Deloitte provided accounting diligence services and West Monroe provided technology diligence services for Riverside on the transaction.
