3Cinteractive, a provider of cloud-based enterprise mobile solutions, has acquired Safi Systems, an Oregon-based private software company. The acquisition, with undisclosed financial terms, allows 3Ci to better deploy mobile workflows that integrate directly with IVR, email and social channels.
“We are very excited about the acquisition of Safi Systems as it accelerates our vision of integrating mobile across any communication channel and will allow 3Ci to further differentiate our unique offering to our clients,” said Tom Holmes, 3Cinteractive's executive vice president and CIO, “The ability to integrate across all communication channels including mobile web, messaging, IVR, email and social will continue to allow us to deliver innovative mobile solutions to the enterprise.”
3Ci has stated that it plans to integrate Safi employees into its corporate structure.
Last December, Forbes named 3Ci one of America’s Most Promising Companies, praising its compelling business model, management team, strong customer base and investment capital acquisition. 3Ci was the only provider of multi-channel enterprise mobility solutions to make the list.
“We are fortunate to have such an amazing team that works tirelessly serving our clients,” said John Duffy, 3Cinteractive’s Founder and CEO. “Mobile is probably the fastest growing industry in the history of the world, and we are just scratching the surface of its potential. We feel 3Ci is well positioned to take advantage of this growth and will continue to be the leader in delivering enterprise mobility solutions.”
As part of its acquisition of Safi, 3Ci now has access to SafiServer, which supports the integration of telephony servers, database, web servers and more. Another Safi solution, SafiWorkshop, is a call flow and IVR designer that allows users to design, test, debug and deploy advanced call routing applications from a unified development environment.
The company also offers a Custom Initiator Client tool and a free PBX (News - Alert) module.
“We feel that our core application has evolved into a system that has the ability to address a wide range of business and telecom needs,” said Safi’s company blog. “And in 2012, we will be adding even more power to what we have to offer.”
