Lafayette, CO (PRWEB) December 22, 2004
Invision Internet Services, Inc. announces the acquisition of IBUnique.com and their complete line of custom and pre-made skins, graphics and templates for the online forums and community business space.
After a long standing strategic business partnership between IBUnique and Invision Internet Services, these companies are consolidating the products and services of IBUnique into the business operations of Invision Internet Services, to provide their combined clients and customers with the best skin, template and graphic solutions available from their international teams and global operation centers.
ÂThis change removes the need for the two companies to dual-brand their products under the two separate namesÂ, said Kim Ritchie, Owner of IBUnique, Âcutting development, support setup and release times tremendously - meaning optimized releases of our combined products and servicesÂ. This also provides both companies with greater resources to develop and work on their product and service offering, especially in the area of pre-made forum skins and templates. ÂThis will speed the market readiness of the two companiesÂ, said John Fisher, President of Invision Internet Services, Âthrough the insertion of new themes, designs and graphics to support the growing requirements of their clients Web site templates and forum skinning needs.Â
ÂAccessing our specialized teams and services will become much easierÂ, stated Kim Ritchie, Âas we will be expanding from our current email and forum contact options through Invision Internet ServicesÂ backend operations, to provide the ability for clients to request work and support via support desk, live chat and by telephony solutions.Â The two companies hope to leverage these service and support system to expand their reach beyond their existing customer base, and into new markets, in the effort to become the premier provider of specialized look and feel solutions to online communities.
ÂGaining the talents of the IBUnique team, their existing products and solutions, and the creative leadership of Kim Ritchie into the Invision Internet Services is a major win for our organization,Â stated John Fisher, Âas this brings our creative and design talents to a new pinnacle of quality and artistic value to our clients.Â Online communities, Web sites, and blogging solutions are all part of the presence of todayÂs businesses and how they are presented and their look and feel is critical to their success and that is where Invision Internet Services plans to leverage the strengths of IBUnique through this acquisition, to provide uncommonly solid and remarkable results for customers.
What does this mean for IBUnique customers?
ÂWe are very excited about this move,Â says Ritchie, Âand know that it will greatly benefit our customers, as well as bringing the growth to IBU that could never have been achieved without the sound professional structure of IIS behind us!Â Customers will gain access to 24/7 support for skins via either forum, ticketed, or live chat support - from a dedicated team of support specialists. Pre-Sales questions, and sales purchases and product delivery will be provisioned in a much timelier manner, and through a much more professional payment system, with greater flexibility in payment options. All this will be delivered via a level of support that is highly refreshing in its height of professionalism, and respect for the client.
