Confirmit’s Intention to Merge with FocusVision

As you may know, it’s been a busy start to 2021 for Confirmit. In the first week of the year we announced our intention to merge with FocusVision. The merger is conditioned on receipt of regulatory approvals and is expected to close in the second quarter of 2021. Of course, we’ll keep you updated as things move forward but for the moment, it’s business as usual as we continue to push ahead with delivering our product roadmap and doing our best to serve our customers.  

Clearly, we are very excited about this planned next step and believe there are huge benefits to our customers and potential customers. We believe that a merged business will: 

  • Accelerate growth by creating a one-stop-shop of complementary solutions offering greater benefits to customers 
  • Accelerate innovation and investment in best-in-class technology solutions; data collection, analytics, reporting and action capabilities - underpinned by a global professional services organization 
  • Combine each company’s infrastructure and technology capabilities to maximize efficiencies and deliver opportunities through driving operational efficiencies and best in class products  
  • Enable Confirmit and FocusVision to take advantage of their complementary geographical footprints to better serve the expanded customer base 

Naturally, we’ve had a lot of questions already. We look forward to answering these questions as soon as it is appropriate to do so. There is a huge amount of planning going on at the moment so we’ll be ready to hit the ground running when the deal closes, but until then, we remain committed to providing the excellent product and service quality that our customers expect.  

As we look forward to realizing the benefits of this merger, we want to reassure our customers around plans for our platform. We realize that our clients have invested significantly in Confirmit, not just in the technology, but in building their businesses around the solutions we provide. Everything from training to integrations with other business systems and building bespoke tools on top of our platforms. And we know that business continuity is critical to your organization.  

On this, I will make a clear commitment to our clients: you will benefit significantly as a result of this merger.  

We will be able to offer a much broader suite of capabilities than we do now, and we have no plans to sunset any significant parts of our platforms in the short to medium term. Moreover, if we do make any changes to your solutions, we will provide the appropriate notice – as we do now when product changes take place.  

Our platform, like our business, is constantly evolving and any decisions we make on either front are for the benefit of our customers. I truly believe that our planned merger with FocusVision will deliver enormous benefits to our customers immediately, and in the longer term. If the merger takes place as planned, I will be leading the combined business as CEO, and I am incredibly excited about the journey ahead of us. Thank you for your support and patience – and there will be more to follow soon.
