“We are delighted to have the Auto-IT employees and customers join the Perseus family and the Constellation Dealer Group,” said Sean Raynor, the President of Constellation Dealer Group. “Auto-IT’s addition to our portfolio will expand our global insight in the industries we already serve and help us innovate in ways we haven’t thought of.

“As shareholders and operators we searched for a strategic partner with a similar value set and culture, that will allow Auto-IT to continue to focus on its customers and realize its full potential in the markets it serves,” said Wayne Rushworth, “Perseus’ buy and hold strategy and the deep industry experience of the DMS market will allow us to continue to put our customers’ needs first and provide an exceptional opportunity for our staff to flourish in a much larger organisation.”
