Humi has acquired Ameego, a scheduling software company founded in Winnipeg in 2006.
Toronto-based Humi, which provides an all-in-one Human Resources platform, says the joining of forces will bring together essential workforce management software to simplify employer work streams and enhance the employee experience.
“Since the beginning, Humi’s mission has been to make the lives of businesses and its employees easier and the acquisition of Ameego directly supports this mission,” stated Simon Bourgeois, CEO of Humi.
Bourgeois said his team had gotten to know Ameego over several years “and knew there was no better team or product to execute this essential piece of Humi’s product roadmap.”
“As we continued to scale Humi’s product suite we came to a decision point: build or buy scheduling functionality,” he explained.
The critical function of HR is often responsible for payroll, legal, workplace culture, performance, retention, and development. To remain efficient and competitive, professionals lean on software solutions to automate and streamline tasks. Humi’s suite aims to achieve this benefit for users.
Meanwhile in Winnipeg, Ameego’s labour management software uses historical data gathered from a customer’s point-of-sale solution to create an optimized schedule for employees. Clients of Ameego save up to 3% percent of their annual revenues that would normally be spent on labour.
“This merger represents a win for Humi and Ameego, but more importantly for our combined client base,” said Kris Edwards, cofounder of Ameego.
According to Edwards, “everything Ameego clients love will remain the same” and that “we now have the resources and expertise to build and scale … everything they’ve been asking for.”
Together, the two companies will enable Canadian businesses to experience the value of a best-in-class, highly specialized software with the convenience of an all-in-one experience, according to a joint statement.
“Humi has an amazing product and team powering it,” affirmed fellow Ameego cofounder Jason Wagenaar. “Together with Humi, we are solving far-reaching challenges businesses face in consolidating data from multiple sources and creating a seamless end-to-end experience that saves time, money, and eliminates errors.”
“The way Canadian employers and employees operate has changed drastically over the past two years,” Bourgeois said in May, “and without the right technology, this change is next to impossible for companies to keep up with.”
The consistently growing Humi is hiring in Canada.
