IC9design, Inc. has acquired Creative Approaches, Inc. The combined e-learning and internet development businesses will expand the breadth of services offered. These services include professional web-based design, development, maintenance and marketing support that is unmatched in the industry.

IC9design, Inc. announced the acquisition of the e-learning and internet development business of Creative Approaches, Inc. of Bloomfield, NY. The business will continue to operate under the name "Creative Approaches", as a division of IC9design.

Creative Approaches, Inc. will continue to operate its internet web hosting business, under its new corporate name, "CAI Hosting, Inc."

The combined e-learning and internet development businesses will be led by CEO Ian Caspersson. Travis Piper, Founder and President of Creative Approaches will remain in a consulting role as part of a multi-year agreement.

Both firms are already co-located in the same facility in Bloomfield. No personnel changes are anticipated.

The joining of the two staffs will expand the breadth of services the combined businesses can offer to both client lists. Creative Approaches has over 25 years of experience developing e-Learning and web-based projects for over 20 Fortune 500 firms. IC9design was founded in 2007 and, although it too has e-Learning experience and services, has been focusing on internet marketing solutions and creative website development.

According to Travis Piper, "Joining with IC9design will afford tremendous opportunities to our current and past clients. While we can develop a web site or application for a client and get it highly ranked on Google, IC9design does not only that, but also issues press releases, newsletters, and employs social media to drive even more traffic to the site to optimize the client's web marketing experience and brand recognition. Our technical expertise will add depth to IC9design's current technical base and our clients can benefit from the enhanced internet marketing offerings of the combined company. With our years in business and IC9design's internet marketing savvy, we will be able to offer web-based design, development, maintenance and marketing support that is unmatched in our industry. We look forward to augmenting the IC9design team and to the significant benefits this will offer to our collective clients. By combining our resources and personnel, we have strengthened the overall organization. Our objective is simple: improve the business and set the stage for growth."

Ian Caspersson commented: "This is a very exciting opportunity for IC9design. Our firms have worked together over the past couple of years on different projects. The opportunities that lie before us with this acquisition are countless. Creative Approaches will add significant competencies, marketing opportunities, and technical resources to IC9design. Creative Approaches has an excellent reputation and track record in the industry and by our working together, we intend to create a one-plus-one equals three scenario."
