Lucidea Acquires Eloquent Systems, Provider of KM Solutions to Archives, Libraries, Museums and Records Managers
VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Lucidea, the leading provider of library automation and knowledge management solutions to organizations worldwide, has acquired Eloquent Systems. Eloquent, based in Vancouver, BC, is an applications developer offering mobile-friendly knowledge management software for professionals who manage archives, libraries, museums and records. They provide an array of tools for organizing information about physical and digital assets so that all stakeholders easily find exactly what they need, through a single venue.
“Lucidea’s CEO, Ron Aspe and I have known each other for almost 30 years, and I am confident Eloquent could not be in better hands,” said Merv Richter, Eloquent’s founder. “Lucidea is well known for both its expertise in knowledge management software and commitment to client service.”
Libraries, museums, archives, government agencies and corporations are under increasing pressure to increase their digital presence, enhance their users’ experience, and protect their digital assets—while remaining cost effective. Eloquent, by joining Lucidea, will be able to further the work of its founder in helping clients achieve these objectives. Lucidea’s infrastructure and resources will enable the Eloquent team to continue its focus on building and supporting high quality, high value solutions to existing clients as well as prospects.
“I feel privileged that Lucidea has been entrusted with the continuing success of Eloquent. Merv Richter and I share the same values with regard to client service and reliable, innovative knowledge management software. Eloquent clients can rest assured that Lucidea will continue to provide the support and powerful KM capabilities they have come to rely upon,” said Ron Aspe, founder and CEO of Lucidea. “We are delighted to welcome Eloquent staff and clients to the Lucidea family, and we look forward to doing great things together.”
The acquisition is effective immediately, and Eloquent employees will continue working with the company in Vancouver. To structure this combination, David J. Raffa Corporate Finance represented Eloquent Systems, and The Kenyon Group Mergers and Acquisitions represented Lucidea.
