Who Are We?
Adatasol acquires software as a service (SaaS) solutions and finds hidden wealth drivers
to greatly improve them.
What Sets Us Apart?
• Our Unique Proposition: We bring over 30 years of software product experience to quickly
determine the best paths for additional success.
• We provide a succession plan to continue the legacy of the existing solution.
In 2017 Adatasol purchased TourTools, a leading SaaS platform for package tour operators.
We continued in 2018 with the acquisition of FrameReady, the leading POS system for the retail and wholesale framing industry.
And in 2019 we acquired Studio Suite, the top back office SaaS platform for audio and video production and post production studios.
In conjunction with two nationally recognized law firms, we developed Runsala, a SaaS platform for
contact and case management for law firms.
A succession plan for SaaS solutions
Adatasol is seeking to acquire private companies focused on the FileMaker platform. We are eager to hear from owners and executives of North American businesses with a focus on the following attributes:
• Want to sell
• Don’t have the resources or capacity to scale
• Tired of trying to improve your platform
• Value a legacy for your application

Eric W. Anderson, Sr. | CFO

He is also President of MPG Management, Inc., specializing as an independent management consultant that develops financial reports, sales plans and operating budgets for small business owners regardless of business industry.
Eric believes that “your business must have an internal financial system, to serve as a base for managing the business. You need to make sure that your financials are set up in such a way that allows management to PLAN – EXECUTE – CHECK – ADJUST.”
For a small business owner “to truly become a high performing company with improved profitability, you must plan for it, evaluate financial performance and take action quickly to address problems as they arise”. Eric will train you that profit is not what’s left over after all your expenses are paid, but must be budgeted as the first line of expense in a disciplined planning process.
Eric believes that a comprehensive budget is a formal statement of the business owner’s expected and preplanned performance. It serves as a control device to help measure performance against the plan and analyze variances so changes can be made to improve future performance.
Eric is a serial entrepreneur and a seasoned sales & marketing pro spending the past 25 years in this capacity. Eric worked 14 years in corporate America spending time with Pepsi Cola and Quaker Oats in sales and sales management positions.
