TriTech Software Systems Announces Acquisition of Zuercher Technologies

August 12, 2015

Acquisition provides TriTech with the most technologically advanced and comprehensive public safety suite for small- to mid-sized agencies


SAN DIEGO, CA (August 12, 2015) – TriTech is honored to welcome Zuercher customers and employees to the TriTech family. For over 12 years, Zuercher has supplied public safety software to small- to mid-size agencies in the public safety industry with a comprehensive suite of applications tuned for that market segment. Zuercher’s unique “service-in-the-cloud” support structure has allowed their customers to achieve maximum uptime and continual upgrades while lowering the cost of system administration.

The company has been growing aggressively since its full market release in 2010 due to its exceptional reputation for high quality implementation and customer service. The number of agencies using Zuercher products has grown from just 12 Zuercher Suite customers in three states in 2010 to over 120 Zuercher Suite customers in 19 states currently. Working together with the Zuercher team, TriTech is excited to build upon a strong foundation of public safety expertise and battle-tested, mission critical technology to evolve the way public safety agencies protect their citizens.
 
Together with Zuercher, TriTech’s products serve all agency types and sizes with the most comprehensive solutions for 9-1-1, computer-aided dispatch, records management, jail management, field-based reporting, analytics, patient care reporting, and ambulance billing. 

Key Facts:

  • Continuing on its strategy of delivering software to solve the current and future challenges of public safety agencies, the acquisition of Zuercher increases TriTech’s market penetration to more than 3,000 installed sites, serving over 130,000 sworn officers, and protecting more than 255 million citizens. TriTech supports installations in every U.S. state, including 82 of the top 100 municipalities, and operations in 14 countries around the world.
  • Public safety is the company’s sole focus, and many of the TriTech management team and employees have extensive hands-on experience in the industry. Zuercher founder, Michael Zuercher, will continue to lead his team and will be the driving force in expanding TriTech’s lower tier go-to market strategy.
  • Many of TriTech’s and Zuercher’s employees bring extensive public safety experience to the combined team. Collectively, TriTech employees will now have over 7,500 years of public safety experience, making it the most experienced and dedicated team in the industry.
  • Due to their impressive growth in new bookings, Zuercher is on track to move to their new office which doubles their capacity to accommodate continued growth.
  • This transaction marks TriTech’s sixth acquisition. The company has been very successful at effectively integrating companies and customers into the TriTech family as well as continuing to develop innovative products to meet the needs of agencies that must adapt to rapidly changing technology and regulations.
  • Zuercher’s industry-leading platform will play a major role in TriTech’s future product offering for small- to mid-sized agencies, as well as provide an upgrade path for smaller TriTech customers who are not candidates to upgrade to the tier 1 Inform suite.
