ASG Acquires Visual Matrix

Visual Matrix property management software

ASG, a portfolio company of Alpine Investors that buys, builds and operates vertical SaaS companies, has acquired Visual Matrix, an industry leading hotel property management software providing an all in one PMS with revenue management, channel management, and operational tools to maximize hotel profitability and efficiency.

This deal marks the 31st acquisition for ASG and the 3rd in the ASG Hospitality Technology vertical. Visual Matrix joins Transcendent, acquired in 2019, and ProfitSword, acquired in 2020. David Awad, Founder of Visual Matrix, will transition out of the business while the team welcomes Georgine Muntz as Executive Chair and CEO.

"We are thrilled to have Visual Matrix joining ASG at this critical time," says Georgine Muntz, Executive Chair and CEO of Visual Matrix.

"Now, more than ever, hoteliers need a fully functional system that helps them optimize every resource in their business. The amount of experience on this team, combined with partnership from ASG, will make this next phase of the Visual Matrix journey one that will expand our ability to serve and delight our customers."

Headquartered in Richardson, TX, Visual Matrix was founded in 2000 by David Awad. After gaining over ten years of experience in the industry, David felt the market was lacking a feature rich PMS at an affordable price. After many late nights testing and developing, they launched their first customer in 2003. Today, Visual Matrix has grown from a simple desktop app to now offering a fully functional platform including a cloud version, and features like guest texting with automated triggers, a housekeeping mobile app with time tracking, and a patent pending VM Revenue Management Live. Visual Matrix has grown to over 40 employees with an installation base in over 2,000 properties across 30 countries.

"Joining ASG's hospitality portfolio will provide a tremendous benefit to our client base by integrating products from sister companies. Integration will expand the feature set to include corporate accounting, reporting, analytics, business intelligence and asset management to mention a few," says David Awad, Founder of Visual Matrix.
