A Fresno software company has completed a merger with another business.
Aplos Software, a leading provider of web-based software for the nonprofit sector, announced its merger with Portalbuzz, a member management software company on June 26. The two will now operate under the Aplos name.
The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Based in Fresno, Aplos software was founded by Tim Goetz in 2009 and originally focused on the creation of fund accounting software for nonprofits. Aplos is currently being used by more than 20,000 organizations in more than 100 countries.
Connecticut-based Portalbuzz was founded in 2005 by CEO Scott Smith, the former chief technical officer of Kiwanis International. The company specializes in helping organizations manage websites, meetings and events, billing and other matters via web-based software.
“I first met Scott while he was working with Kiwanis a few years ago and I could tell we both cared about building trusted and affordable software for nonprofits,” Goetz said in a statement. “There was a lot of potential to work together and I am excited that we can combine our efforts.”
“Using technology to help nonprofits has been a passion of mine for a long time,” Smith said. “I am excited for the future and how the merger between Portalbuzz and Aplos can provide a broader portfolio of online tools to make running a nonprofit easier.”
Smith will serve as vice president of product for Aplos after the merger.
