AMCS, the world’s leading supplier of integrated software and vehicle technology for the resource management, waste collection and recycling industry, today announced the completion of a significant investment from Insight Venture Partners and Ireland Strategic Investment Fund (ISIF).
The investment will be used for continued product innovation in AMCS’ suite of SaaS products and related technologies, to further accelerate the Company’s growth in North America, Europe and Australasia, and to expand AMCS’ SaaS Platform into adjacent vertical markets.
“Today’s announcement represents a major milestone for AMCS,” said Jimmy Martin, CEO and founder of AMCS. “In addition to providing capital that will enable us to continue to grow and innovate for our customers, this further investment by two of our long-term strategic partners demonstrates their confidence in our business, strategy and team. This confidence is reflected in our plans to further roll out the most comprehensive cloud-based SaaS platform for the resource management, waste collection and recycling markets.”
Under the terms of the funding, Euan Menzies, Senior Advisor at Insight Venture Partners, Henry Frankievich, Vice President at Insight Venture Partners, and Robert Schnittger, Investment Director at ISIF will serve on the AMCS Board as non-executive directors.
“Since our initial investment in 2015, Insight Venture Partners has taken pride in the growth and success of the AMCS team,” said Euan Menzies, Senior Advisor at Insight who will assume the role of Board Chairman. “As the clear leader in technology solutions for the recycling and waste management communities, AMCS has continued to establish their stake in the ground across geographies. We look forward to their continued international growth.”
The investment comes as AMCS closed out a record 2017. AMCS experienced more than 50% growth in the adoption of its SaaS solutions by the world’s most successful operators in waste collection and recycling, and announced the completion of its acquisition of Brady Recycling Solutions. To accommodate AMCS’s rapid growth, the Company will be opening a new global headquarters at City East Plaza, Limerick, Ireland in late summer 2018. The additional office space will support the Company’s continued expansion as it creates 100 new jobs in Product Development, Sales, and Global Customer Support over the next 3 years.
Fergal McAleavey, Head of Private Equity of ISIF said: “We’re delighted to invest in AMCS again and support their continued development as a global software business. This new investment will help to create and sustain up to 100 jobs and deliver a new global headquarters in Ireland’s mid-west. It is an excellent example of a high-quality investment that fits ISIF’s “double bottom line” mandate of generating a commercial return and supporting economic activity and employment in Ireland.”

Third-Party Study Validates STATS K50 GPS’ Superior Accuracy in Measuring High-Intensity Performance18.2.2019 07:00:00 | Pressemelding
In a recent independent study by the Technical University of Munich (TUM), STATS, the worldwide leader in sports data and intelligence, had its novel 50 Hz GPS system (STATS K50) tested against a traditional 15 Hz GPS system (GPSports SpiProX) to measure covered distance and instantaneous velocity. Both systems were simultaneously recorded and measured against a criterion reference (Laveg radar gun) during 30-metre linear sprint trials. The study, commissioned by STATS and conducted by TUM, found that STATS K-50 has a smaller bias than a traditional technology and that it is capable of quantifying high intensity activities 30% more accurately. High-intensity movements and accelerated runs over short distances are believed to be the most important variables to be tracked in sports science. STATS K50’s new approach to wearable tracking is an integrated inertial navigation system (INS)/GPS technology that combines 50 Hz GPS position and Doppler velocity measurements with inertial measurem

5 Happening Cultural Destinations to Visit in 201915.2.2019 10:11:00 | Pressemelding
Hong Kong There’s never really a sleepy year to visit Hong Kong, but 2019 is particularly ripe for visitors. Spearheaded by the dynamic entrepreneur Adrian Cheng of K11 and New World Development, the rejuvenation of Tsim Sha Tsui harbourfront is just the starting point. The city’s iconic harbourside walkway, Avenue of Stars, has just received a much-awaited makeover that’s the brainchild of Cheng and visually conceived by James Corner, the landscape architect responsible for the High Line in New York. It sees the addition of design-driven rest areas, kiosks featuring homegrown brands, hand prints from Asian film stars and interactive digital elements. Featuring Hong Kong’s first wave energy demonstrator that produces electricity for the Avenue, the place is turned into one of the most sustainable promenades in Hong Kong. This is just one part of Cheng and his company’s grander urban revitalisation plan, Victoria Dockside, a new art and design district which will fully open in the third
