25 July 2007 — Fort Worth (TX): eCommerce Industries (ECI²) has acquired La Crosse Management Systems, a leading provider of copier dealership software solutions.


ECI² will operate La Crosse as a subsidiary and will continue to market and support the La Crosse product line, including the company’s dealer business software, La Crosse Nextgen, the eNextgen eCommerce platform, and other La Crosse products.


Sales and support of the products will continue to be handled by the current La Crosse staff from the company’s La Crosse, WI location.


"La Crosse is a successful company with a solid product line, skilled employees, and a proven track record in the industry," said ECI² senior VP Don Weary. "As with other ECI² acquisitions, day-to-day operations will be virtually unchanged; dealers will continue to receive training and technical support from the same employees they have come to know and trust.


"In the longer term, ECI² will be leveraging La Crosse’s technology and expertise for the benefit of all of our customers in the office equipment industry."


The acquisition further strengthens ECI²’s position as one of the largest providers of industry-specific business system software and related technology for office equipment dealers.
