CGM acquires software provider AP Easy
CompuGroup Medical US, Inc.’s Lab Division (CGM) continues to solidify its position as a leading provider of laboratory information systems in the US with the acquisition of Small Business Computer of New England, Inc. dba AP Easy Software Solutions (AP Easy) based in Manchester, New Hampshire. AP Easy is the market-leading provider of systems for the growing anatomical pathology (AP) segment of the market.

“The AP Easy anatomic pathology solution is a great addition to our product suite,“ stated Carl Smith, General Manager, Lab Division, CompuGroup Medical US. “This acquisition will allow CGM to better serve laboratories and hospitals across the care continuum, while also increasing our presence in existing and new domestic and international markets.”
“The acquisition of AP Easy is a strategic fit within our overall company strategy and a great start to the year for CGM US,” said Benedikt Brueckle, President & Chief Financial Officer, CompuGroup Medical US.
Chris Lord-Paquin, COO of AP Easy expressed that “AP Easy is excited to join the CGM family. AP Easy is a perfect addition to current CGM offerings. Under the leadership of CGM, we expect AP Easy to grow exponentially.”
