Everbridge, a provider of interactive communication and mass notification solutions, has completed the acquisition of Hypersun Group Ltd., a specialized Internet and software engineering services firm.
Thanks to the acquisition of Hypersun Group Ltd., Everbridge will now be able to substantially increase its technical resources and overall ability to deliver new solutions to the mass communications space.
Hypersun Group also provides Everbridge with an important presence in the Asia Pac, one of the fastest growing economic regions of the world, allowing the company to better support its multi-national client base with on-the-ground local resources.
“The acquisition of Hypersun Group Ltd. strengthens Everbridge’s competitive advantage by enriching our overall offering to clients around the world,” said Jaime Ellertson, chief executive officer, Everbridge, in a statement. “Ultimately, this acquisition provides Everbridge with a deeper bench of engineering expertise which allows us to innovate at faster pace and add additional resources for global client support - in the most cost-effective manner,” said Ellertson.
As part of the acquisition, software development veteran and founder of Hypersun Group, Yuan Cheng , will join Everbridge’s executive team as senior vice president of engineering.
Earlier in November, Everbridge announced that University of Colorado Health deployed the Everbridge solutions suite for emergency communication and staffing operations. When looking to replace their legacy communications system, University of Colorado Health evaluated Everbridge because the company had been named a leader by Gartner (News - Alert), Inc. in their 2012 Magic Quadrant for U.S. Emergency / Mass Notification Services (EMNS).
The Everbridge solutions suite enables University of Colorado Health to deploy a closed loop communications strategy around critical activities, ensuring that messages reach key individuals through capabilities such as multiple contact paths, call escalation and receipt of confirmation.
