We intend to combine that with the product strengths that CM Plus has developed over 25 years, to become the provider of choice for larger facilities and multi-club companies.
Silver Spring, MD (PRWEB) November 16, 2006
MotionSoft Inc's health and fitness division, KI Software, today announced the acquisition of Tucson based Computer Outfitters. As a result, KI, will immediately assume support and development responsibilities for all Computer Outfitters' customers. The acquisition will strengthen KI's marketplace, product line, and allow for enhanced customer support services. The deal also represents a major opportunity for KI to build on the 25 years of industry experience and business acumen of Computer Outfitters' leadership and staff who will remain on board.
"Our vision for KI has been to build a company with a single goal in mind; to consistently exceed our customers' expectations with feature rich applications and unmatched support," said Al Noshirvani, MotionSoft CEO. "We can't think of another company in our industry which has demonstrated this same vision better than Computer Outfitters"
Frank Anderson, Computer Outfitters Founder and President explained "KI has a solid product born from their work with organizations like Equinox Fitness."
He added, "We intend to combine that with the product strengths that CM Plus has developed over 25 years, to become the provider of choice for larger facilities and multi-club companies." Anderson will serve as the Vice President of Technology and Development at KI.
The combined company will gradually merge KI's eClub and Computer Outfitters CMPlus software product suites, leveraging KI's Microsoft Competency with the advantages of .net development tools. Computer Outfitter's customers will gain immediate access to several KI modules including MyClub, an online accounts module that allows members and prospects to access club information, visit histories and statements through the club's website.
With the merger, KI establishes a west coast presence in Tucson and becomes the only industry vendor to provide bi-coastal customer support. "West coast customers have historically been underserved in the industry and we intend on directly addressing that" added Noshirvani.
The Computer Outfitters acquisition is expected to increase the size of KI Software's footprint in the industry to over 1500 facilities. Immediately following the close of the transaction, Computer Outfitters will become part of the KI Software business and both companies' sales forces will begin reference-selling each others' products and services.
