"And the acquisition of BCC Software represents a transformative and highly complementary achievement. This will further strengthen BlueCrest as the largest end-to-end postal solutions provider. We’re so excited to see what these two leaders in the industry can do together."

By acquiring BCC Software, BlueCrest will now be able to deliver complete end-to-end solutions for:

  • Data Quality

  • Design/Composition

  • Document Re-Composition

  • Presort & Logistics

  • Printing

  • Sorting

  • Inserting

  • Mail piece Preparation, Tracking & Reporting

For 40 years, BCC Software has been dedicated to bringing communications professionals industry-leading address quality offerings, mail preparation tools, and data enhancement solutions.

"Both BlueCrest and BCC Software are respected leaders in the direct communications space," said Chris Lien, President of BCC Software. "As a single company, we now offer the mailing industry a comprehensive, complementary technology set – equipment, services, and software – that deliver our combined customer base leading solutions throughout the mail production workflow. In addition, customers will benefit from access to collective knowledge, professional services, and support. This does not simply make us bigger; combined, we are better."

"Together with the BlueCrest and BCC Software management teams, we are excited about the prospects of bringing these companies together. This is a transformative acquisition reflective of our commitment to support BlueCrest’s long-term objectives by investing in growth organically and through strategic M&A," said Platinum Equity Managing Director Adam Cooper.
