IS Solutions acquires Chapter26

Website development company IS Solutions plc has acquired the content management software (CMS) business Chapter26 Ltd.

The AIM-listed business has announced that on July 22, 2008 it bought the Surrey-based company for an undisclosed sum.

John Lythall, managing director of IS Solutions, said: “IS Solutions has a content management practice that addresses the small to medium sized business and with the addition of Chapter26 this will extend our offering into the enterprise market allowing us to capitalise on the fast growing CMS market.

“IS Solutions and Chapter26 are both Microsoft Gold Partners and our shared skills within the Microsoft practices will complement the technologies and expertise between our two companies.

“The complimentary client bases of the two operations should also lead to increased sales opportunities for the combined operation and we look forward to working with the new team.” 

Mark Ward, managing director of Chapter26, added: “The solutions and years of experience provided by both organizations are highly complementary and, as a joint entity, makes for a powerful combination.

“More importantly, the similar culture and business philosophy of both companies will be good for both our people and our customers alike.

“Everyone at Chapter26 is very pleased with the acquisition and we are looking forward to the experience of the combined organisation.”
