Local software development firm acquired by Internet provider company

Openjive, a local software development company that builds collaborative solutions for the Microsoft platform, has been acquired by TekSavvy, a southwestern Ontario-based Internet provider.

“We look forward to continuing to build great products, solutions and services for our customers,” Openjive founder and chief architect Greg Thomas said in a statement.

TekSavvy is based in Chatham but has an office in Gatineau. The company said in a release the Openjive acquistion will add to its bench strength in Gatineau, allowing it to begin offering software-as-a-service and professional systems integration services.

TekSavvy spokesperson Pascal Tellier said the company is excited about the acquisition.

“It is another element that expands our ability to bring professional services, and our renowned customer support, to small and medium Canadian businesses,” he said in a statement.
