Being acquired by Aspire

Aspire will make its presence felt positively throughout the organization. We won’t take over, either; our approach is a collaborative one through a decentralized structure which sees our teams working directly with yours to ensure projects are completed on time and to the highest possible standard.

Our teams will ensure your products and services are placed in the best possible light. We’ll support the sales effort, too, by helping your in-house team build and nurture a consistent, profitable lead funnel. Add to that operations support, professional development, finance and accounting, and you’ll wonder how you ever coped without us!

Our acquisition criteria is whetted by companies that meet the following principles:
In-house development of SaaS or on-premise software
Headquartered in North America, Europe and Australia
Proven business model (“our customers love us”)
Proven operating platform with cost-structure advantages
Long tenured customers (even if the growth rate is modest)
Thanks to our ability to run software businesses in all lifecycles on a proven operating model, Aspire has long specialized in developing companies that are 20 years old or more and in need of a technology update.
