ClearCourse obtains UK’s foremost legacy management software provider Clear

ClearCourse, a leading group of market-leading technology brands providing integrated software and payments solutions, recently announced the acquisition of Clear. Targeting market-leading software solutions for the non-profit and transport sectors, Clear will broaden ClearCourse’s established and growing footprint whilst also creating new opportunities within the transport sector. This is the first deal of the year for ClearCourse, following the recent appointment of CEO Christina Hamilton. 

Clear’s solutions are designed with specific customer needs in mind to streamline its customers’ processes and operations. Its flagship product in the not-for-profit space, FirstClass, is the UK’s leading legacy donation management software, helping over 100 charities and not-for-profits maximise their income from legacy donations. Similarly, the company’s Clear Cross and Clear Logistics systems help transport operators process revenues and manage logistics. The company also specialises in creating bespoke systems to help its customers with various business processes such as contract recording, claims handling and data storing. Clear supports over 100 globally recognised, leading charities and businesses such as Oxfam, the NSPCC, Cancer Research UK and National Express.

Based in Chorley, Lancashire, and with a team across the North West of the UK, Clear’s acquisition represents a further expansion of ClearCourse’s presence in the region following the opening of its Northern Tech Hublast year in nearby Preston. Clear shares a range of integration opportunities with ClearCourse’s existing software offerings, creating significant extra value for customers. For instance, brands within ClearCourse’s Membership Services Division will have the chance to benefit customers through the integration of Clear’s FirstClass offering. Clear’s customers will also benefit from ClearCourse’s horizontal solutions, including integrated payments, investment, resources and expertise.

John Antunes, Managing Director of ClearCourse Software and Services division, said: “This acquisition is undoubtedly an excellent addition to ClearCourse’s software solutions for the not-for-profit sector. We’re very excited by the integration and growth potential inherent in the deal, which brings new opportunities for us to work better together across the group. For example, Clear’s customers can access our market-leading CRM platforms and address validation services. We’re also excited by the opportunity to learn from such an experienced team at Clear, who we’re delighted to welcome to ClearCourse.

Jan Rathbone and Ian Parker, Directors of Clear, said: “We’re very pleased to share that Clear will become part of ClearCourse. At a time when the company is looking to grow and develop to the next stage of our journey, ClearCourse is the perfect fit for Clear. We’re excited to work with a wide range of impressive products. ClearCourse offers and for Clear to benefit from their support and investment in 2023 and beyond.”

The financial terms of the deal are undisclosed.
