Document management giant Xerox Corp. has acquired an Austin-based company that develops software tools for government agencies

Consilience Software, founded in 2002, sells case management and workflow automation software

Financial terms of the purchase were not disclosed

State and local government agencies in 11 U.S. states, seven U.S. cities and two states in Australia use Consilience’s web-based software

The software, called Maven, automates processes related to documents and labor, and it can be integrated with older technology systems for planning, reporting, program evaluation and anti-fraud activities

The acquisition “strengthens Xerox’s suite of offerings for addressing the pent-up demand for modernizing government, ” said Nancy Collins, president of Xerox’s state enterprise solutions group. “Governments are under constant pressure to do more with less. In Maven, Consilience has a proven, innovative, scalable solution.”

Xerox will continue to target Maven to customers in public health, labor and human service areas. It also will offer the software for child support and government benefit disbursement services

Consilience said its management team and 40 employees will remain with the company, with operations continuing at its Austin headquarters and Waltham, Mass. office

Xerox, headquartered in Norwalk, Conn., has more than 140,000 employees in more than 180 countries. Best known for selling printers and other business equipment, Xerox has transitioned in recent years into an information technology services company

“By joining Xerox, Consilience and our clients will benefit from the global company’s strong legacy of research and development, its powerful brand and its market-leading presence in state and local government services,” said Joy Alamgir, Consilience co-founder and executive vice president
