 Xytech, a San Fernando Valley company that provides facility management software for the broadcast and media industries, has been acquired by Banneker Partners, a software-focused private equity firm.

Its flagship software is MediaPulse which provides scheduling, automation, asset management, billing and cost recovery for broadcasters and transmission facilities.

Richard Gallagher, chief executive of Xytech, said that when he started the company his primary goal was to bring facility management into the next generation to help media companies be more efficient and productive. He added that for more than three decades that has been Xytech’s focus, and he is proud of what the company has accomplished. 

“Banneker, with its investment focus on software solutions aimed at specific verticals and willingness to invest to scale operational delivery, product innovation and sales and marketing, is the perfect partner for Xytech’s next stage of growth,” Gallagher said in a statement. 

Gallagher will retain ownership and continue as chief executive.
