Valsoft Corporation (Valsoft), a Montreal-based company specializing in the acquisition and development of vertical market software businesses, has acquired Communications Software (Airline Systems) Limited (Commsoft OASES), a leader in the aviation engineering and maintenance software market, based in Tiptree, U.K.
Founded as a software house in 1971, Communications Software (Airline Systems) Limited won its first airline contract in 1975 with industry innovator Laker Airways in the U.K., leading to the launch of the predecessor to OASES (Open Aviation Strategic Engineering System) the following year. Since its first association with the airline industry over 40 years ago, Commsoft has been continually developing its MRO IT system, now called OASES – a process that has been shaped in large part by feedback from its clients.
The directors will remain involved to ensure a smooth transition, while Nick Godwin will continue to lead the company as Managing Director. The company will continue to develop and support OASES, as well as all other products and services, providing a robust software solution to customers.
