ClearCourse acquires Bristol tech firm


Acquisitive London tech group ClearCourse has snapped up Bristol tech firm Felinesoft.

ClearCourse is a group of innovative technology companies providing digital services, work-flow solutions, and payments capabilities to the membership, events & bookings, sports & lifestyle and healthcare sectors.

Felinesoft provides digital and operational solutions for some of the UK’s most established businesses and charities.

Since its foundation in 2001, Felinesoft has worked with an array of recognisable UK businesses, such as Macmillan, British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, Kennel Club and Age UK.

The addition of Felinesoft strengthens ClearCourse’s growing presence in the not-for-profit and CRM industries, increasing the scope of its sector specific integration capabilities.

Felinesoft will be able to integrate with proprietary technologies from across the group, including payments processing capabilities and first-class data validation.

Gerry Gualtieri, CEO of ClearCourse, commented: “Felinesoft has achieved a strong market position by offering an excellent level of service and expertise to its notable list of clients.

“There are clear synergies with our existing Group companies, and they present another valuable opportunity for integration with our range of software solutions across the Group.

“In partnership with Felinesoft’s accomplished management team and dedicated employees, we look forward to supporting the Company’s continued growth.”

Ralph Johnson, Managing Director of Felinesoft, said: “We’re incredibly proud of the growth and scale we have achieved over the past 19 years. Gerry and the ClearCourse team have demonstrated a great understanding of the sectors we operate in and of the values we have built the business on, empowering companies with the tools to achieve their objectives.

“Being part of ClearCourse will give us access to the breadth of operational, strategic and financial support we need to enhance our customer service and the solutions available to our clients.

“We have watched the ClearCourse story evolve and are excited to join them on this journey.”

The financial terms of the deal are undisclosed.
