March 10, 2020 — Software consulting and development services firm Soliant Consulting continues to expand its services within the FileMaker community with the acquisition of EnglishComp Ltd., a software product firm specializing in project management solutions and workflow efficiency.
Based in New York, EnglishComp is a Platinum FileMaker Business Alliance Partner and builds its software products in FileMaker Pro. The acquisition provides continued services for the firm’s clients, and as the largest FileMaker Platinum Partner, Soliant is an ideal partner for EnglishComp’s future.
“The opportunity to acquire the great team, clients, and products of EnglishComp was very compelling for us. It’s a great fit with our core consulting business,” explains Bob Bowers, Soliant Consulting CEO. “Jim built a solid company, and I’m honored that he’s entrusted its future to us.”
Soliant will absorb the EnglishComp team and continue to support JobCharge and ActualizeIt, EnglishComp’s flagship products. These software solutions empower agencies and graphics departments and post, broadcast, and FX houses, respectively, to streamline their work. Moving forward, clients will have access to Soliant Consulting’s business analysts and developers to customize their software and develop additional workplace solutions.
“As the demand for more robust deployment and integration options increased within our growing family of users, we felt the need to align our small company with a larger business group. As friends and longtime colleagues of Soliant Consulting, we have long admired their innovation, business acumen, and reputation for attracting the best and brightest talent,” shares Jim English, former EnglishComp CEO. “When the time came for me to pass the baton and retire from the role of CEO to consultant, Soliant Consulting was my obvious first choice to take over our products and services. I am enthusiastic about the positive future this acquisition will provide our clients and team.”
Soliant Consulting looks forward to supporting EnglishComp’s clients and providing them with innovative technology consulting services.
EnglishComp is a software development and consulting firm specializing in project management solutions and workflow efficiency for advertising, production, post, FX, interactive, and video, since 1985.
