hydropoint-logo_150HydroPoint Data Systems, the maker of WeatherTRAK smart irrigation technology, acquired smart irrigation provider Baseline Irrigation Solutions, based in Boise, Idaho. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Following record revenue growth for both companies in 2015 and 2016, HydroPoint’s acquisition of Baseline brings a powerful array of smart water management technologies to the HydroPoint 360 degree Smart Water Management platform and expands its geographic footprint, the company said.

“Baseline’s extensive background in managing irrigation for the world’s most complex sites, combined with their widely recognized superior moisture sensors and two wire technology, are an incredible addition to our platform,” said HydroPoint CEO Chris Spain. “Of course, technology is only a part of HydroPoint’s ultimate success. The Baseline team also brings years of experience and expertise in design and specification sales complimenting HydroPoint’s depth and proven success in channel and enterprise sales.”

Baseline will continue to operate as an independent company, and HydroPoint will invest in both the Boise operations and the Baseline product line.

“This truly shifts both organizations into a higher gear,” said Baseline CEO Joe Wallace. “The opportunity to share our respective technologies means all of our customers will continue to have the most advanced smart irrigation systems in the industry.”
