Change is good as MACC joins the Harris family of companies
by Craig Aman, President and CEO
On October 1, 2022, MACC announced our acquisition by Harris (harriscomputer.com). I was first introduced to Harris in 2018 and observed the company over the years. What struck me from day one was their core philosophy matched that of MACC’s – a focus on customers, people, and products. When Harris acquires a company, they don’t go in and tear it apart; they believe the company loses the “magic” of what makes them successful. This was a really important factor in the decision to sell to Harris.
Yes, there will be changes along the way. But the core of what MACC was founded on remains the same and that has brought a distinct level of comfort as we move through this transition. As a result of Harris’ experience, we are able to work with them for best practices. We are able to take their knowledge of software development and apply it to MACC as we continue to develop our products and services. Our resources have broadened, and I am very excited to see the positive changes this will make for you, our customers, as we move forward.
