ADS snaps up SCT to create giant of data and software

Autologic Data Systems has paid an undisclosed amount for Stafford Computer Technology to form a new operation delivering a complete range of products and services to the automotive industry.

ADS supplies technical workshop data to around 1000 users and vehicle specific information to the Vehicle Inspectorate's MoT computerisation project. It includes the MoT Club, which provides services to vehicle testing stations. SCT has about 1200 users of its garage management systems and also supplies software to motor factors, parts suppliers and fast-fit operations.

“We intend to incorporate both companies' databases to offer a complete service to all customers,” says an ADS spokeswoman. “It will mean customers do not have to source services from different companies.”

Both organisations will retain their trading names and head offices - ADS at Brockenhurst in Hampshire; SCT at Weston-Super-Mare, Somerset.
