MNC Software and SuiteLife Systems Merge

New company Leeward Software aims to be “global broadcast monitoring powerhouse”

MNC Software and SuiteLife Systems, both of which provide broadcast monitoring and control systems, have merged and will do business as Leeward Software.

The new entity will debut at the NAB Show. The companies called the merger “a natural succession to a long-standing partnership,” noting that they have collaborated on numerous projects recently. 

The companies are not expecting staff cuts. “It’s business as usual, and we are not planning any workforce reductions,” a spokeswoman told Radio World.

MNC, based in San Diego, was owned and operated by David Allen and James Bloomfield, who founded it in 2008. SuiteLife, in Signal Hill, Calif., was owned by Nigel Brownett, who launched it in 2012. 

Their new entity will be owned and managed by those three and based in Signal Hill. It will sell to broadcasters, telecommunication network providers, production facilities, studios and media tech companies. Leeward’s systems are used to monitor and control networks, infrastructure, buildings and systems. Their product lines include Axess, Mosaic, and Tessera software and GPX Pro hardware.

The companies said the merger will allow Leeward to “offer a more comprehensive suite of network management, monitoring and control solutions that address a wider range of needs and applications.”
