IgniteTech Grows Through Merger of Aclate

Merger adds Customer Engagement and Supply Chain solutions to IgniteTech’s broad family of solutions

AUSTIN, Texas — February 17, 2021 — IgniteTech™, the company “Where Software Goes to Live™” and its parent, ESW Capital, today announced the merger of sister operating company Aclate Inc. into IgniteTech. With this acquisition, Aclate’s eleven software solutions will now be part of a much larger business unit that has been profitably operating for over ten years, providing additional resources to both the Aclate and IgniteTech customer bases.

The addition of Aclate’s Customer Engagement and Supply Chain platforms strengthens IgniteTech’s Sales & Marketing Enablement, Customer Experience Management, Functional Process Automation and Commerce & Digital Engagement solution suites. IgniteTech’s vision and mission continues to be realized through the enrichment of these foundational suites of technology enterprise software customers need.

“Integrating the Aclate solutions and prestigious customer base into the IgniteTech organization continues to drive momentum and add fuel to the ‘Re-Ignited’ vision and efforts we announced for 2021,” said Eric Vaughan, IgniteTech’s CEO. “Strengthening our product portfolio adds amazing value to our IgniteTech Unlimited program for both customer bases and remains a key principle of the value proposition we promised. IgniteTech has merged two other business units and over 20 other products into our organization since 2018, so the team is very experienced in ensuring a smooth and effective transition for our newest customers.”

With this acquisition, IgniteTech’s portfolio now includes:

  • Beckon Enterprise Marketing Analytics
  • Bespeak SMS Marketing and Loyalty Platform
  • OneSCM Supply Chain Orchestration
  • OneSpot Personalization and Individualization Platform
  • Northplains
      • OnBrand Content Lifecycle Management
      • Telescope Digital Asset Management (DAM)
      • Xinet Powerful On-Premises DAM and Workflow Solution
  • Zumobi Dynamic Content Feeds

IgniteTech Unlimited (what Aclate called “Prime”) is the groundbreaking, Netflix-style license model where every IgniteTech customer’s product license is a subscription to the entire IgniteTech enterprise solution portfolio, and the merger now provides additional solutions to both the Aclate and IgniteTech customer bases. Managing through the pandemic challenges of 2020, IgniteTech customers deployed over 100 software solutions at no cost as part of the Unlimited program, driving down costs across their organizations.

IgniteTech’s intention is to quickly evaluate the best opportunities for technology investments to enhance the Aclate products, building on IgniteTech’s reputation for cutting-edge solutions. Aclate customers will continue to be serviced as before with continuity, and IgniteTech will communicate any changes clearly and in advance to ensure a great transition.
