News Flash: Convio Acquires GetActive

Big news in the online advocacy world! As a GetActive customer (at NET), I just received this email from GA CEO Sheeraz Haji:

I’m writing to share the exciting news that GetActive is to be acquired by Convio, Inc. This is a significant milestone for the nonprofit sector, our company, and our product. But most important of all, this is great news for our clients.

This agreement with Convio combines the resources of the two leading software companies serving nonprofits to create a clear leader in this fast evolving market. GetActive has the best Advocacy and Website management products available and Convio is recognized as the industry leading eCRM and Fundraising solution.

The client focus and market understanding you’ve come to expect from GetActive will not go away. Our staff will become employees of Convio — virtually doubling the new company’s ability to develop new features and offer new services.

The note goes on to talk about the eventual migration of GetActive customers into some Convio products and also about maintaining customer service continuity, etc. I’ll write more as I find out what’s up. Nothing posted about it on the GA site yet. Update: there’s a press release on the Convio site.

    Not looking forward to this integration of service providers. I truly love GetActive, and have had mixed experiences with Convio…

    I have had really bad experiences with convio and I hear that GetActive is realy good. I’m worried that this will make getactive worse and convio only a little better. thoughts?
