Omnica, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of multi-channel fulfilment software, has been acquired by Columbus, a major international software group with origins in Denmark. The price has not been disclosed.

Omnica was founded in 2007, and saw rapid growth under the leadership of managing director Harry Manley, who previously cut his teeth with rival Maginus. It focused from the start on the Microsoft Dynamics platform, which is also a speciality of Columbus.

It quickly built up an extensive customer base, amongst which are brands such as Lucky Vitamin, Eason and Direct Wines. It is understood to have a work force of 30 employees, which is substantial for a specialised developer in this sector.

Columbus has been vigorously acquisitive over many years, and has a achieved a strong global presence through subsidiaries and agencies. Its turnover in 2012 was just short of DKK 900 million.

The company says Omnica appealed because of its "deep engagement and knowledge within the retail industry". According to chief executive Thomas Honoré: "With Omnica as part of our business we will gain unrivalled knowledge and insights in this field."

Harry Manley adds: "With Columbus’s global reach we can expand into new markets and take our multi-channel retail solutions to new levels."
