TSS enters the Italian software market with the acquisition of RTS

Nieuwegein, 4 February 2019. Italian software supplier Remote Terminal System Srl (“RTS”) has joined Total Specific Solutions (“TSS”). RTS provides a software suite for the corrugated -packaging manufacturing- industry. With this acquisition, TSS enters the Italian software market and establishes its presence in the manufacturing vertical.

RTS was founded in 1981 and has become one of the leading Italian software vendors in its vertical and is active on an international scale. The complete ERP system covers the specific needs of box factories, corrugators, and integrated plants to have the full control of all their processes for the business, production, logistics, security, and sustainability requirements. The RTS solutions suite has been designed to manage the business processes, providing its users an important competitive advantage in terms of efficiency and effectiveness. RTS also offers its customers a wide range of professional services, training, and consultancy in the field of "digital enterprise evolution" and system integration.

Patrice van Geffen, General Manager at TSS: “In almost 40 years Gastone Partisani and Mauro Mercadante managed to grow RTS into a leading software solution for the Italian corrugated industry. Building upon decades of experience, the solution provided by RTS truly fits the needs of the industry. Being part of TSS, RTS will be able to accelerate their growth further using the experience and best practices that TSS has to offer. I am pleased that both Gastone and Mauro will stay on within the company in their current roles as Managing Director and CTO respectively.”

Gastone Partisani, President at RTS: “Mauro and I had reached the point where we were looking to take the company to the next stage. Since 1981, we have been working closely with our employees and customers and wanted to ensure the best future for them. In TSS we found a company that shares our values of a customer-centric approach. RTS will remain an independent business unit with its own identity as is the norm within TSS’s and CSI's decentralized operational model. Being part of a larger group will give RTS access to all the best practices in running a successful vertical market software company and the stability for the decades to come.”
