CCI has acquired the North American consulting company Red Badge Consulting Inc.

For almost ten years, Red Badge has helped a large number of media corporations implement CCI NewsGate.

Adding the skills of Red Badge to the CCI family will enable us to better deliver more of the services that media companies have handled themselves in the past.

Dan Korsgaard, CEO

“We’re excited to announce this acquisition of Red Badge. As publishers focus more on their core business, we see an increased need for helping our customers in fast and efficient training and rollout of technology. Adding the skills of Red Badge to the CCI family will enable us to better deliver more of the services that media companies have handled themselves in the past,” says CEO of CCI, Dan Korsgaard.

While CCI consultants handle the project management, implementation of the solutions, setting up and configuring workflows and systems, Red Badge consultants often assist the CCI customers with additional product setup, end user training and assistance during the rollout.

Andy Boltax, a former journalist and systems editor working with CCI solutions at e.g. the Washington Post and Tribune Publishing, founded Red Badge Consulting in 2005. In addition to helping publishers, Red Badge also utilize their skills within workflow setup and implementation of software solutions in other industries.

Boltax is thrilled about his company joining the CCI family: “I’m CCI’s biggest fan. There’s nothing better out there for publishers than the CCI solution. It is very well designed and developed. It enables journalists in incredible ways to do their work productively – so yes, I’m very pleased with the possibilities of this new setup with CCI and Red Badge,” he says.

Within the CCI family, Red Badge Consulting Inc. will continue to operate as an independent company headed by Boltax.
