Last week, we announced the acquisition of The City from Zondervan, a world leader in Christian publications. I would like to welcome churches currently using The City and their Seattle based City employees to the ACS family! ACS Technologies has a long history of product and customer group acquisitions, building the largest customer base in the industry while offering a full range of products and services.
The City was originally developed by a large Seattle church with the vision to provide a church-community platform for their communication needs. Prayer request, group communications, event management, and other community activities are all centralized in The City. All churches have this need, and while ACS manages some of these activities, The City has taken the community component to a new level.
We announced the acquisition of The City last week at our annual conference in Cincinnati, and were excited to invite four members of the The City team to the conference. The news of this addition to the ACS family was well received as reflected by the attendance at product demos and the traffic at The City booth.
Of course, one of the first questions asked was how ACS and The City are going to interface. While it is too early to discuss a full product roadmap, we plan to continue development on ACS and The City, while working with joint customers to set the priorities for development as we integrate the two products.
We are excited about our most recent acquisition. For more information, check out The City website.
