Mission Critical Partners Buys IT Consulting Company
Wednesday, January 15, 2020 | Comments

Mission Critical Partners (MCP) acquired URL Integration, an IT consulting company specializing in the criminal-justice and public-safety sectors. The acquisition is the second for MCP this week, after buying Black & Veatch’s Public Safety consulting services earlier this month.

Financial details were not released.

MCP said the acquisition furthers its commitment to helping mission-critical organizations deploy integrated data-sharing solutions that promote communications interoperability and improve collaboration among agencies. With URL Integration, MCP now can offer new vendor-neutral solutions, including analytics, systems integration and artificial intelligence (AI), to help clients realize more value from data to support applications such as field reporting, CAD, records management and jail management.

“Public safety is experiencing an unprecedented transformation, and agencies need data-sharing solutions that enable stronger decision-making,” said Kevin Murray, MCP’s cofounder, chairman and CEO. “URL brings new skillsets that will help us better support our clients as they look to automate the flow of data in the emergency response ecosystem — from beginning to the end — including the criminal justice function.”

Founded in 2002, URL Integration has implemented more than 1,100 data exchanges in state and local criminal justice operations, and the firm has worked in more than 19 states for state-level and local clients.

“Joining MCP is a natural next step for us,” said Dave Usery, URL’s founder and CEO. “Since our founding, clients have relied on us to help make them more effective and efficient. Similar to MCP, we are not tied to a specific vendor and integrate software from any provider, reinforcing MCP’s commitment to vendor neutrality. We look forward to this opportunity to support clients with added resources and to serve a broader client base.”

MCP acquired IT firm Athena Advanced Networks in 2018.
