Jonas: The Biggest Global Software Company You've Never Heard Of

Ever heard of Jonas SoftwareIf you’re reading this then the answer is probably not. To clear up any doubt, we want to give you a broad introduction to who we are and what we do.  

Who is Jonas 

Jonas Software acquires, manages, and builds industry-specific software companies globally and is part of the Constellation Software group, a highly reputable and long-standing business. 

Making up for 1/6 of the global entity, Jonas has the backing, creditability, and security - with a track record of over 100 acquisitions (of which 30 are in the UK) that offers both certainty and reliability. With the presence of over 25 verticals in more than 30 countries, Jonas has an established reputation of being a strong, global vertical market software (VMS) operator. 


What do we do?  

At Jonas, we buy and hold companies forever. This makes us exceptionally well placed to give you more than peace of mind, but also a promise that we call “Software for Life” – simply, since our beginnings in 2003, Jonas has never sold a company it has acquired.   

Instead, we strive to be a great permanent home for companies that join the Jonas family, and we look to leverage your knowledge and experience to make the business even stronger.  As owners of almost 100 businesses in a range of vertical markets, we know some of the common challenges faced in a business and we have the expertise to overcome them and add real value.   

On top of this, we allow the individuals who move a business to the Jonas family to access our strong network and our Talent Development Programme. After all, we truly believe that people are our greatest assets.
