But a pivotal moment came in 2012 when the SuperService platform was born, the industry’s first integrated service platform, containing several software solutions that Infomedia has acquired in the last decade, along with the original MicroCat solution. Infodrive was introduced by IFM in 2019 following the acquisition of Nidasu, an Australian-based automotive data solutions company. SimplePart was acquired in 2021.
