London technology group ClearCourse has announced the acquisition of The Swan Group, a provider of retail management software.

Hampshire-based Swan becomes the 21st company to join the group, bolstering EPOS, CRM, and eCommerce capabilities, following the purchase of Touchretail to the Group in 2019 and its now in-house design agency Standout in 2018.

Founded in 2003, The Swan Group is a software provider for businesses operating in the retail and hospitality sectors.

It has several brands, including Swan Retail, which caters to retailers including Furniture Village, Fenwicks, Jollyes, and Rohan.

Gerry Gualtieri, CEO of ClearCourse, commented: “Swan’s CRM, EPOS and eCommerce offering will continue to bolster our existing portfolio and help deliver better services for our diverse pool of customers across all sectors. The Swan Group is an impressive player in the industry and we’re very much looking forward to having them on board.”

David Thompson, CEO of The Swan Group, added: “Gerry and the team are the right fit to ensure that our own staff and customers are well looked after. Swan will benefit from greater investment and the opportunity to work alongside a range of complementary businesses.”
