Success Snapshot – Gallery Systems
Challenges and Goals
Gallery Systems (Gallery) is a cultural collections asset management software company that has thrived for the past 20 years with over 800 customers. But when his partners started to consider retirement, Jay Hoffman (CEO) was unsure how the business would fair post retirement. As well, Hoffman was looking to have a more strategic role in the business and not be caught up in day-to-day operations. Gallery needed a parent that would provide an exit strategy for the retiring partners and could help the company be more strategic for the long term.
The Volaris Difference
Since being acquired by Volaris Group in 2012, Gallery Systems has experienced these key benefits:
- An exit plan for the retiring partners
- Implementation of new metrics and ways of managing its development process
- Generation of new revenue streams and more organic growth initiatives
Since the acquisition, Hoffman has been able to step away from the day-to-day operations and be more focused on long-term strategies and growth. As well, Gallery has begun to explore potential mergers and acquisitions of their own to further round out their market presence.
