Building a Technology Platform Through Acquisitions
Aptean found success by growing and integrating with new businesses.
Today’s organizations operate in a fast-paced, competitive environment. Businesses, regardless of industry, can’t afford to spend time and money on generic, one-size-fits-all solutions or workarounds.
Formed in 2012 by the merger of CDC Software and Consona Corporation, Aptean provides industry-specific applications and purpose-built software to enhance processes and help businesses manage their ERP, supply chain, employees, and customer relationships. Today, more than 7,000 highly-specialized organizations in more than 20 industries and 74 countries rely on Aptean to streamline their everyday operations.
Kim Eaton joined Aptean in 2014 as Chief Operating Officer, overseeing global operations. In 2016, four years after Aptean became a Vista company, Eaton was named CEO. For the more than two years she served as CEO, she focused on creating a culture of collaboration and accountability.
