Alcumus Acquires Banyard Solutions

Press release – Date: June 2020

Banyard Solutions Drives Success Through Buyout

Southampton-based Banyard Solutions, developer of e-permits, the UK’s first and leading web-based work authorisation and permit-to-work system, has been acquired by Alcumus, the UK’s leading provider of risk management solutions.

Originally devised and developed 18 years ago to support the construction of Canary Wharf and now used broadly in facilities management, e-permits delivers control of contractors and a reduction of risk to over 60 blue-chip clients in the UK and abroad.

Alcumus provides a range of technology solutions, advice, expertise and support which helps clients to identify and mitigate risks, navigate compliance to create better workplaces and keep people safe.

Newly acquired Banyard Solutions will complement Alcumus’ well established portfolio of software-led risk management solutions and will help to drive forward its success and provides their clients with an enhanced service offering.

Simon Olliff, Managing Director and co-founder of Banyard Solutions said: “e-permits has an excellent track record of ensuring worker safety through work authorisation and permit-to-work. We’re excited to become part of Alcumus as it will enable our clients to complete the digitalisation of all their safety processes and workflows, further reducing their risk profiles and driving business growth”.

Alyn Franklin, Alcumus CEO said: “Alcumus has a strong mission that requires expert solutions: we help make workplaces better and safer, and businesses stronger. The acquisition of Banyard Solutions provides greater opportunities for us to provide clients with risk management and compliance solutions and will help to support our growth ambitions and drive improved business performance. It is a real testament to the strength and resilience of Alcumus that we are able to make an acquisition in such uncertain times”.
