Active Network Acquires RTP
SAM Magazine-San Diego, Calif., Nov. 14, 2011-The Active Network, Inc., a provider of organization-based cloud computing applications, has acquired enterprise computer services provider RTP. For Active, which has focused primarily on helping organizers manage summer events, RTP "is an excellent complement to our mission of connecting people with the activities they love, want and need to do all-year-round," said Dave Alberga, CEO of Active Network.
For RTP customers, the acquisition means "business as usual," marketing director Mary Anschutz told SAM. All RTP offices and staff remain in place. The company is hosting webinars this week so that customers can get any questions answered.
Charlie L'Esperance, president and CEO of RTP, said, "We believe becoming part of Active Network drives maximum benefit to our diverse customer base and provides growth opportunities for RTP Â we can continue to innovate and excel in delivering business solutions to the marketplace."
The Active Network has more than 47,000 global business customers-from Little League and campgrounds to the Colorado Department of Wildlife and other government bodies-and handled 70 million transactions last year. Headquartered in San Diego, Calif., the company has more than 25 offices worldwide. \
