Zumasys to Acquire Assets of PPI Information Systems

Zumasys is acquiring the assets of PPI Information Systems, a PICK software house located in St. Louis, Missouri.

PPI is a proven provider of software services offering programming services in PICK and Microsoft .NET using SQL or Universe as databases.

Together, the companies will draw upon their combined expertise with API development and application modernization to make a better product for IMACS users.

As part of the transaction, John Hill, the President of PPI Info, joined Zumasys as a full-time developer.

PPI traces its roots back to Pick Professionals which was founded by Sherwood Farnham and David Wasylenko.

In 2018, following the passing of both founders, long-time employee John Hill stepped in to continue their work under a new company known as PPI Information Systems.

"John and the PPI team have 25 years’ experience developing and supporting PICK applications, including IMACS which Zumasys acquired from Northwest Information Systems, Inc. in 2020. When John contacted us and told us about his IMACS customer base, it made perfect sense to join forces so we could expand the resource offerings to all customers. We are delighted to be coming together and we have already integrated John and his team into IMACS development,” said Mike Coelho, Zumasys general manager.

This is Zumasys’ 8th acquisition since 2019 and it marks the company’s continued expansion into vertical application software based on the PICK data model.
