Harris acquires PowerManager business from Salt Creek Software, NMPP

Ottawa, ON, May 22, 2023 — Harris, a global vertical market software provider, adds to its utilities portfolio with its acquisition of the PowerManager software suite.

The PowerManager software suite are products created through the partnership between Salt Creek Software and the Nebraska Municipal Power Pool (NMPP), both based in Lincoln, Nebraska. The two organizations have worked as partners to successfully develop and assist municipalities and utilities with software business needs since the late 1990s.

Mitch Mullins, Chief Executive Officer of Salt Creek Software stated, “We are thrilled that PowerManager is joining the Harris Utilities Group, and that our software will enter a new chapter. This acquisition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team and NMPP’s. Under Harris’ world-class leadership, PowerManager will be able to offer its innovative solutions to even more customers, and drive greater success in the market.”

Bob Poehling, Executive Director of NMPP agreed,  “As NMPP looked to the future, we wanted to ensure our member utilities receive for years to come the excellent software solutions and service they have come to expect.  Harris is a great fit to lead PowerManager to the next level and ensure user fulfillment of business-essential tools.”

Harris Portfolio Leader, Dana Lendorf-McCarthy, confirmed, “We welcome PowerManager to our growing family of innovative utility software solutions with open arms. With this acquisition, we are expanding our expertise, resources, and capabilities, enabling us to better serve our customers and drive growth in the industry.
