RICHMOND, Va. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — August 19, 2019 — Harris Williams, a global investment bank specializing in M&A advisory services, announces that it advised ComputerEase Software (ComputerEase) on its sale to Deltek. ComputerEase develops integrated construction accounting, project management and field-to-office software for contractors. The transaction was led by Tyler Dewing, Priyanka Naithani, Scott Reinig and Ryan Costa of the Harris Williams Technology, Media & Telecom (TMT) Group and Mike Hogan of the firm’s Industrials Group.
“Under the leadership of Bob Mattlin, founder, and John Meibers, president, ComputerEase has emerged as a go-to solution for construction accounting and project management software for contractors across trades,” said Tyler Dewing, a managing director at Harris Williams. “ComputerEase is pursuing a massive market opportunity, as contractors of all sizes are rapidly adopting software and payroll solutions to help manage their business, improve financial performance and monitor profitability and performance of projects in real time.”
“The sale of ComputerEase to Deltek highlights the continued commitment of the construction industry to adopt new software solutions across the project lifecycle,” added Mike Hogan, a managing director at Harris Williams. “While the industry has historically lagged in technology adoption, the improved user experience that ComputerEase can deliver – whether in the office on a PC, or in the field on mobile devices – combined with continually rising labor and raw material costs, have catalyzed accelerated software adoption to increase worker productivity, reduce project delays and enhance workplace safety.”
