Ideagen strengthen Australian footprint building on EHS capability
Ideagen, a leader in regulatory and compliance software, has today further strengthened their EHS capabilities with the acquisition of Australian health, safety, environment and quality software company, Lucidity.

This takes the total investment by Ideagen into Australia-based software businesses to around AUS$ 150m.
It’s also Ideagen’s third health and safety solution in 12 months, following the acquisition of DevonWay last month and ProcessMAP in 2022 as the Nottingham, UK-headquartered business proactively boost their EHS and asset management capabilities.
Ideagen CEO, Ben Dorks, said:
“Australia is a hot bed of good, innovative tech businesses and Lucidity is a great example of this – a class-leading solution offering customers depth of functionality and scalability to meet their EHS and quality needs.
“The addition of Lucidity builds our footprint and increases the support we can offer to regulated industries in that region, and we are looking forward to amplifying that great tech globally.”
