AutoLUX acquired by Keysoft Solutions

UK based Keysoft Solutions has signed an agreement to acquire the rights to the lighting design program, AutoLUX, from US based Independent Testing Laboratories (ITL), Inc.

The acquisition will secure future investment in the AutoLUX product and broaden its existing KeyLIGHTS offering in the UK to international users. The acquisition was completed on February 1, 2017 and a plan is in place that ensures the Keysoft Solutions team will service the needs of existing and new AutoLUX users going forward.

Keysoft Solutions’ CEO, Jeremy Ellis says “AutoLUX is an established package in the US, and this acquisition extends our existing lighting design capabilities by adding functionality for engineers to calculate lighting levels and produce lighting design drawings in one simple to use application. This strategic acquisition provides us with the capacity to extend the Keysoft Solutions product portfolio and ensures that AutoLUX will continue to be developed”.

AutoLUX will complement the existing range of traffic management and landscape design software, which assists highways and landscaping professionals in the creation of detailed 2D and 3D design drawings.

Bill Brackett on behalf of ITL comments “Having overseen the development of AutoLUX for the last 30 years, we are pleased to have the product acquired by Keysoft who will provide that AutoLUX’s lighting design functionality will be available to users long into the future.”

Ellis adds: “Initially we will continue to maintain both the AutoLUX and KeyLIGHTS software as separate products. However, as they are complementary, we plan to integrate them so that all customers will get the benefit of both pieces of software in one application”.

Keysoft Solutions provides a comprehensive range of CAD and database applications for landscaping, traffic management, road safety, street lighting and highways maintenance engineering. With intuitive interfaces and extensive libraries of symbols, they are the preferred software providers for a large number of councils, civil engineers and blue-chip organisations.
