Ignite's unique approach to finding complementary solutions and software companies with great opportunity for growth, after Ignite's transformation into our highly-optimized operational model, delivers real value to our customers.
Our M&A team finds compelling technology that can thrive in our unique operational model. We bring these solutions in with a long-term view, dedicated to support the acquired customers and drive new value for our existing customer set.
During initial integration, we stop all new customer acquisition to focus on improvements to product quality and dependability for the existing customer set. This Standard Edition of our products delivers immediate benefit to the on-boarded customers, creating a foundation for new features and benefits.
Once fully stabilized and operating smoothly, we set to work on new functionality in a new Enterprise Edition of the acquired products. This new version delivers unparalleled improvements in UI/UX, mobility, performance and more.
