Market Impact

The controlling interest Kasten now has in ICC will enable Kasten to have a total CRM and customer support solution that can be sold worldwide.

Prior to the acquisition, IntellAgent had an installed base of greater than 18,000 seats.

User Recommendations

On the surface, this looks like a good marriage for organizations utilizing Lotus Notes. However, with all mergers there are always bumps in the road. Make certain that the corporate strategy and direction following the merger completion matches your own prior to investing in software and services. We recommend (assuming you do not already have a IntellAgent Solution in place) is to hold off on purchasing for a six month period to allow the transition issues to subside.
