Harris Acquires Mid America Computer Corporation and EnSite Incorporated

Ottawa, ON, October 21, 2022 — Harris, a global vertical market software provider, acquires Mid America Computer Corporation (MACC), a telecommunications software provider, and EnSite Incorporated, a retail energy software provider.

Since 1975, more than 350 US telecommunications providers have utilized MACC’s billing, accounting and carrier access billing systems to realize profiles and boost efficiencies. “Harris focuses exclusively on software companies, applying industry best-practices for their businesses' continued growth and success,” Chief Executive Officer, Craig Aman said. “This change aligns seamlessly with MACC’s existing strategic plan for product evolution and customer growth. We felt Harris was the perfect partner as they provide a permanent home for our customers and our employees. We look forward to utilizing the resources available from Harris to guide our clients to even greater levels of success.”

MACC will operate autonomously under the leadership of Chief Executive Officer Craig Aman and Chief Operations Office, Bob Sims. Harris Portfolio Leader, Patrick Shaughnessy, comments, “Our team first met Karen and Craig back in 2018, and it was clear that as a family-owned business their customers and employees were very important to them. We believe that commitment to both customers and employees is an essential part of what makes MACC such a wonderful business. It also perfectly aligns with Harris’ buy-and-hold forever strategy. We are very excited to have MACC in the Harris family.”

EnSite’s product suite is a unique system providing fully integrated customer service, complex pricing and cycle billing solutions for natural gas and electricity retailers. EnSite will join Harris businesses, Cognera and Excelergy, which offer retail billing and management solutions to global energy retailers. Harris Executive Vice President, Julia Wareing, said, “The EnSite acquisition adds complementary resources to further facilitate growth, and to augment our current and new customers’ needs.”
