Sopheon Expands into Asia and South Pacific with Acquisition of Prodex Systems

Third acquisition in 19 months extends Sopheon global reach

PITTSBURGH, July 13, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sopheon, the InnovationOps software company, today announced the acquisition of the business and assets of Prodex Systems Australasia (“Prodex”), a specialist provider of innovation software and consulting based in Brisbane, Australia.

Prodex, a longtime reseller of Sopheon products, assists innovative and successful companies to make better, quicker decisions and increase speed to market. This acquisition gives Sopheon a truly global footprint and a strong platform to advance customer acquisition and growth in the world’s most dynamic region.

“This is Sopheon's third acquisition in 19 months and the latest evidence of the strong momentum that our company is experiencing,” said Greg Coticchia, CEO of Sopheon. “With companies throughout Southeast Asia increasing their innovation investments, it's fitting that Sopheon's first acquisition to expand our geographic presence be in this expanding market. Prodex, a longtime reseller of Accolade, assists innovative and successful companies to make better, quicker decisions and increase speed to market. Sopheon’s innovation leadership continues to expand as a result of our consistent growth in product offerings, customer implementations and global reach.”

Sopheon’s previous acquisitions included ROI Blueprints and Solverboard. Those important technology assets were further developed and launched as Acclaim Projects and Acclaim Ideas, respectively. Alongside internally developed Acclaim Products, the launch of these new SaaS solutions have expanded Sopheon’s addressable market by an estimated $2 billion and boosted the company’s position as the leading software vendor focused on operationalizing the business of innovation.

“The transition for Prodex to become a Sopheon entity is an exciting extension of the reseller agreement we have had in place for many years,” said Gerard Ryan, CEO and founder of Prodex. “We are already working with Sopheon in Australia, New Zealand and Thailand, with market development plans in place for the wider Southeast Asian region. We’re excited by the synergy of immediate geographic expansion for Sopheon in this highly innovative and high-growth region, while also enabling true 24/7 coverage for Sopheon’s global customer base.”
