By Staff Reports, posted Sep 29, 2020
EMS LINQ INC (LINQ) of Wilmington, an administrative software solution for K-12 schools and districts, announced it has acquired Colyar Technology Solutions, an Arizona-based school nutrition management software provider.

"The partnership brings together industry leading solutions that empower schools and state agencies to streamline the management of their child nutrition programs," according to an announcement Tuesday.

The financial details of the acquisition were not disclosed.

Greg Baker, who has served as CEO for Colyar since 2018, has now taken the role of president and general manager of the Colyar business unit and LINQ Nutrition, a news release stated.

According to the release, Baker will focus on further developing both product lines to help school districts manage their meals programs efficiently while identifying ways to increase efficiencies between districts and their respective state agencies.

"For nearly 25 years, Colyar has provided an industry-leading platform to help our customers in nearly 40 state agencies successfully manage their child nutrition programs,” Baker said in the release. “I’m thrilled that this partnership will combine the strengths of the software solutions built by LINQ and Colyar to create one of the most powerful school nutrition management platforms on the market.”

Krista Endsley, CEO of LINQ, said in the release that the two companies bring together solutions that will meet the needs of K-12 school districts for years to come.

“Bringing the two companies together was an easy decision to make,” Endsley said in the release. “We’ve perfected our product over the past 30 years at LINQ, and this merger is a fantastic opportunity to provide K-12 school districts with the innovative software solutions they need now and into the future.”

LINQ serves more than 2,700 districts and over 26,000 schools in 48 states.
