ARTEMIS INTERNATIONAL ACQUIRES ACCEPT SOFTWARE

SAAS Company Bolsters Artemis’ Capabilities In Product Planning & Agile Execution

AUSTIN, Texas, October 9, 2012 – Artemis International, one of the leaders in large-scale project and portfolio management solutions, today announced the acquisition of Accept Software.   Accept Software’s Accept360 product enables collaborative product planning across the entire product development lifecycle, from ideation to agile-based execution.

“Artemis software manages some of the largest projects and portfolios in the world – projects like the International Space Station,” said Artemis CEO Scott Brighton.  “With Accept, we’ve broadened our capabilities to include the ability to manage the largest product and product portfolios in the world.  We now offer an unrivaled range of solutions that can appeal to customers whether project, product, or portfolio is the center of their universe.”

The Accept360 Platform is the only complete, end-to-end software solution that tightly links company and product strategy through ideation, portfolio planning, roadmaps, requirements management, and agile-based execution.  “We think of Accept360 as the ‘ERP’ of product development.  It’s the only solution that solves the totality of the problem.  And it offers unrivaled scale to handle the planning challenges of the largest product companies,” added Brighton.

Accept serves over 50 customers across North America and Europe, including Nokia, Symantec, McAfee, and Nvidia.  “We will roll out our Customer Success program for Accept customers to increase the attention and level of focus they get.  With the resources of a larger company, Accept customers should expect a faster pace of product development.  And customers from both Artemis and Accept will benefit from access to the broader solution portfolio.  We expect to launch exciting new offers to enable them to do so,” said Brighton.
