Urbandale-based Firehouse Software was acquired by Austin-based ESO Solutions Inc. Tuesday, according to a news release on the ESO Solutions website.
The companies are not disclosing terms of the transaction, according to the release.
Firehouse Software was founded in 1997 and is used by approximately 11,000 fire departments across the country for their incident reporting and records management.
ESO Solutions is a data and software company serving medical services, fire departments and hospitals.
The Firehouse Software acquisition will accelerate ESO Solutions growth into the healthcare and fire service software and data sectors, according to the release. ESO Solutions will now serve more than 13,000 emergency medical services, fire departments and hospitals.
In the release, ESO Solutions President and CEO Chris Dillie says the acquisition will help improve patient outcomes by bringing community health and safety together.
“By helping fire and EMS first responders more easily and intuitively capture data in complex situations, then use the data to improve efficiency and efficacy across their operations, we can help them focus on protecting and saving lives, rather than data entry and mining,” Dillie said.
ESO Solutions will hire all of the Firehouse Software employees, according to the release.
