The Carlyle Group has acquired 1E, Unified eXperience Management (UXM) software solutions provider.
1E’s technology currently manages over 11 million endpoints. Its Tachyon technology allows their customers to integrate it into their existing Microsoft and ServiceNow infrastructure in order to deliver an integrated digital employee experience, optimise costs and create IT efficiencies with a tangible return on investment.
Fernando Chueca, a Managing Director in the Carlyle Europe Technology Partners (CETP) advisory team, said: “We were attracted to 1E’s fully integrated digital experience technology, which is differentiated by its advanced remediation and automation capabilities, and are delighted to partner with Sumir as we support the company as it enters its next phase of growth. With strong industry tailwinds, we believe 1E has significant growth opportunities and we look forward to supporting another founder-backed business to scale through investments in product innovation, commercial operations, and international expansion.”
Sumir Karayi, CEO and Founder, added: “The pandemic has accelerated a massive market opportunity to help global businesses transform the employee experience. The industry is at an inflection point and we’re poised for rapid growth as businesses formulate their post-pandemic plans for work. We are delighted to have the backing of Carlyle. Their experience with high-growth technology companies with a strong expertise in infrastructure software makes them the right partner to propel us through the next stage of our journey and illustrates 1E’s potential.”
