Fox Williams advised Jonas Software, a subsidiary of longstanding TSX-listed client Constellation Software Inc. on its acquisition of AMI Education Solutions Limited from London-listed RM Plc.

AMI through its Easytrace product set is a leading provider of smart card and biometric software for Education, focussed on cashless catering, and a wide set of applications, all controlled by a single card or finger print, and is a leading supplier to the Government new build and academy programme.
