Middle-market private equity firm Huron Capital in Detroit launched its latest ExecFactor system, with the help of Enterprise Application Services (EAS).

The platform is meant to provide improved business outcomes through the implementation, customization, and management of software applications.

The new platform was created because the number of applications used by companies of all sizes is increasing. Those applications usually support discrete business processes, are underutilized, and misaligned with best business processes, and require upgrades, replacement, or consolidation.

Manual intervention is often required to extract data for use across the enterprise. Unlocking this data by having the best workflows in place is the first step toward using tools like AI.

“I am looking forward to working with the Huron team to launch a full spectrum of offerings including consulting, design, implementation, and managed services,” says Gene Chao, CEO of the EAS Platform. “Huron’s deep expertise building platforms in professional services markets makes this team ideal for founders looking to grow and scale their businesses.”

Chao’s experience spans major technology consulting companies such as IBM and Unisys as well as emerging technology companies, such as Amelia.ai. Over the last decade, he has worked to enable widespread adoption of intelligent automation, business process re-engineering, and new technology commercialization across AI/machine learning, Robotic Process Automation (RPA), and IT automation.

“Huron Capital is pleased to partner with Gene to build a company that supports customers as they navigate their technology transformation journey from process design through managed applications services,” says Mike Zukas, ExecFactor lead and principal of Huron Capital.

“This initiative is another incredible example of how the ExecFactor model can create attractive opportunities for founders to accelerate growth organically and through mergers and acquisitions by deploying Huron’s buy-and-build playbook.”
