Act-On Purchases Marketbright Assets

Act-On LogoConsolidation in the marketing automation space continues as Act-On Software announced it has acquired the assets of Marketbright.  Marketbright was started in 2005 which predates Act-On’s existence by five years.

Beaverton, Oregon based Act-On Software has raised over $16 million over the past six months.  In June, Act-On closed on a $10 million series C funding round led by Trinity Ventures.  That followed a $4 million investment in November 2010 from US Venture Partners, Voyager Capital, and Cisco Ventures.  The company says it has 350 customers.

“We are extremely pleased to be in a position to be able to do this. Marketbright was certainly one of the pioneers of the marketing automation space,” said Raghu Raghavan, Founder and CEO of Act-On Software. “We look forward to the opportunity to bring current Marketbright customers into the vibrant and growing Act-On community.”
