Complete XRM, Inc., the culture-of-productivity experts, announced it has acquired Fanatic Software, makers of the Pocket Informant Mac, iOS, and Android productivity apps. A software developer of mobile and Mac applications with over 4 million app downloads over its 17-year history, Fanatic Software, based in Cedar Park, Texas, will continue to operate, develop and support the Pocket Informant product line.
“Fanatic Software has built an excellent reputation with its products, and we have tremendous respect for the community of users that support Informant,” said Keith Norris, CEO of Complete XRM. “We are on a mission to drive and define the Culture of Productivity®with our PlanPlus brand. Pocket Informant is one of the best and most loved personal productivity tools on the market. We’re excited to bring these two businesses with common purpose under one roof so that customers of both can benefit from the complementary capabilities that will be coming to each of their product brands.”
With the acquisition, the Informant team will stay intact. As the new home of Informant, Complete XRM will offer its marketing and development resources to help Fanatic Software continue to deliver a comprehensive offering of personal and organizational productivity tools—while strengthening its own product suite.
“It's great to see the expansion of another home-grown company,” said Spencer P. Eccles, Investor/Chairman and former Executive Director of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development for the State of Utah. “In my former role as the head of GOED we always celebrated the expansion and growth of successful companies like Complete XRM. I've watched Complete XRM for over a decade and I love seeing CEO and co-founder Keith Norris and his team adding Utah jobs.”
“We had been looking to expand our vision for our flagship product Informant by offering more support for Android, Windows, and web platforms,” said Alex Kac, developer and CEO of Fanatic Software. “By joining with Complete XRM we can now offer more collaborative, sync, and business features to Informant as well.”
