Medgate Inc., the leading global provider of occupational health and safety (OH&S) software, is pleased to announce it has acquired UK-based Tempus Software Ltd.’s Cohort Occupational Health software business.

Cohort is widely recognized as one of the leading OH software solutions in the UK, and is a key supplier to the National Health Service, the largest employer in Europe, providing occupational health software to over 150 hospital trusts. This move further solidifies Medgate’s UK market presence, where they have key clients such as BP, Jaguar Land Rover, GlaxoSmithKline and Ford UK, and will add over 200 international and UK-based clients to their roster of Global 500 companies and multi-national government bodies. “The acquisition of the Cohort business provides great value to Medgate and to our customers,” stated Mark Wallace, President of Medgate. “In recent years our multi-national customer base has requested more and more global functionality. This transaction allows us to leverage the product features and local expertise of a company that has been a leader in the UK market. I welcome Cohort, its employees and customers to Medgate; we look forward to supporting Cohort in its mission of being the UK leader in customer service excellence.”

Simon Brooks, General Manager of Tempus Software’s Cohort business noted, “We’re delighted to be joining forces with Medgate, whose sole focus is providing the most comprehensive Occupational Health and Safety Software available on the market today. The combination of our two companies is a tremendous win for us and for our customers.”

Medgate will continue to sell its Medgate OH&S software system globally; the Cohort product will continue to be developed, sold and supported by the existing Cohort team through Medgate UK Limited in the UK and beyond.
