ECi Software Solutions Buys Vineyardsoft
Business activity monitoring software to benefit customers across vertical markets
ECi Software Solutions, a provider of cloud-based business management solutions, has acquired Vineyardsoft Corp., a provider of business activity monitoring software. Vineyardsoft’s flagship solution, KnowledgeSync, is a widely used alert and workflow solution that provides insight into critical business events in real time.
Founded in 1999, Vineyardsoft has more than 150 reseller and OEM customers that have implemented KnowledgeSync in over 10,000 organizations worldwide. Among those is ECi, which has had a well-established and successful relationship with Vineyardsoft since 2014.
KnowledgeSync is used across products in ECi’s Manufacturing and Field Service Divisions. ECi says the acquisition will allow ECi to more easily extend the benefits of KnowledgeSync to its broader customer base, as well as put more resources behind advancing future generations of the product.
KnowledgeSync combines business intelligence, alerts, and workflow to help businesses monitor key activities across the organization. Through alerts and warnings, business leaders and staff can identify conditions that require attention—such as leads that need follow up, stock items that require re-order, and invoices that are overdue for payment. KnowledgeSync Version 10, which is set to be released in the coming months, will feature the most significant updates to the product since its introduction, including making the product accessible in the cloud.
Vineyardsoft employees will report to ECi’s Manufacturing Division president, Jeff Ralyea. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
