Boise, ID (PRWEB) March 31, 2014
On Tuesday April 1, Boise-based tech companies, Agilefront and Ferguson Technologies will officially merge to form Royal Jay. The software company, specializing in custom product development, will leverage a diverse team with years of experience developing go-to-market solutions for notable brands such as Microsoft, HP, Intel, Inofile, Carhartt, FTD, Direct Local Food, Simplot, Jim Beam, Columbia and the Chicago Cubs.
Royal Jay will be led by managing partners Jarod Ferguson (Ferguson Technologies) and Candace Sweigart (Agilefront). Jarod, an ASP Insider and three-time Microsoft MVP came up with the Royal Jay brand, inspired by his grandfather, Royal Jay Swenson.
“The name Royal has been given to four generations before me, but will end with my uncle. My grandfather, Royal Jay, raised me as one of his own from the time I was nine years old. When naming our company, we wanted to communicate pride of workmanship, treating our employees as family, and honoring those who have contributed to our success. To us, the ultimate sense of belonging comes from our company identity being tied to our heritage and shared values.”
The company is currently working on several high-profile custom software projects, including scalable secure messaging, cattle genetics, mobile ordering and asset management across a number of industries including agriculture, healthcare, legal, high tech, consumer lifestyle, education, retail, restaurant and professional sports. The team has quickly gained a reputation outside of Boise’s growing tech community, collaborating with cross-functional teams across the US, Canada and Europe.
“This is a very exciting event for both companies, for our employees, and our clients”, said Candace Sweigart, Managing Partner. “Our greatest strengths have always been our talented team and expertise, and by joining forces we have just made a huge increase in the quality of that asset.”
