Imperial was established in 1988 as a provider of systems integration, implementation and software bespoke services to the corporate sector and in October 2003 Imperial acquired Langdale Systems, a leading parking software provider then owned by NCP. This development programme was given further impetus following the acquisition of another prominent parking software provider, Compex Development & Marketing, from Vinci Park UK in December 2006.
On 1st November 2009, Imperial Business Systems became a non-trading holding company as Imperial, Langdale and Compex formally merged. The collective client portfolio of Langdale and Compex gave the newly-formed company market-leading status.
In 2019 Imperial Business Systems Group was acquired by Volaris Group, part of the largest IT company in Canada, Constellation Software. Volaris acquires, strengthens, and grows vertically-focused software companies, offering them a safe and permanent home, and positioning companies like ours for long-term, sustainable growth.
Being part of Volaris continues to mean that all clients benefit from a stable and successful resource dedicated to the development and application of enforcement technology. The company’s established team of system engineers has pioneered recent advances in parking enforcement technology as a direct result of its close client and e-Government partnerships and its progressive User Group. These ongoing developments are supported by stringent management disciplines, a full range of application support services and an overriding commitment to meet the evolving priorities and operational requirements of each client, as well as periodic changes in traffic management legislation. The software allows for easy integration with third-party products, technologies and interfaces to support the Government’s joined-up approach.
