Totalmobile acquires Manchester-based Working Time Solutions

Totalmobile's Belfast office in Pilot Point at Clarendon Dock.

BELFAST-based enterprise mobility software developer Totalmobile has paid an undisclosed sum to acquire Working Time Solutions (WTS), a Manchester-based provider of shift planning, rostering and workforce management software and services, to strengthen its existing capabilities.

It signals the latest step in Totalmobile's strategy for growth, with the firm's award-winning chief executive Jim Darragh predicting that 2022 will be “a year of unprecedented growth and customer excellence.”

It follows the company last year completing its biggest-ever acquisition by buying workforce management and analytics technology provider Cognito iQ in Newbury.

Totalmobile (formerly known as Consilium Technologies) has more than 1,000 customers and 300,000 mobile-workforce users across the public services, property, facilities management, transport and infrastructure sectors.

The WTS SaaS-based solution enables organisations to ensure the right resources are available at the right time, in order to significantly increase capacity and productivity, while supporting employee wellbeing and compliance.

The latest deal will see 60 organisations and 30,000 users of WTS’s technologies - including National Highways, Northern Gas Networks and Birmingham Airport - join Totalmobile’s growing customer base of over 1,000 organisations.

Mr Darragh added: “Managing operational resources efficiently is more important than ever to our customers as they battle staff shortages, sickness and absence.

“By bolstering Totalmobile’s rostering software and shift pattern capabilities, we can help organisations keep their services running smoothly, efficiently and with minimum disruption to the customer experience.

“In addition, the acquisition of WTS also strengthens our footprint in the North of England and provides additional opportunity to increase our profile across the entirety of the UK and Ireland as we look to continue our growth journey.”
