FreePoint Technologies Increases Focus on Manufacturing

Direct Impact Solutions to acquire FileMaker business and other non-manufacturing assets

LONDON, Ont., Mar. 19, 2020—FreePoint Technologies, an award-winning provider of software for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to manufacturers worldwide, today announced that Direct Impact Solutions has purchased FreePoint’s FileMaker custom development business, including the CoreSolutions name, trademarks, and related intellectual property (IP). Direct Impact Solutions also purchased FreePoint’s custom web development business that is unrelated to manufacturing. As part of the transaction, Direct Impact Solutions hired several FreePoint employees with skills related to FileMaker and web development.

“As demand for our ShiftWorx products has grown, our custom software team has shifted more of its focus to manufacturing. We saw a need to find a company that would serve our other customers well, especially those with significant investments in FileMaker applications,” remarked John Traynor, CEO of FreePoint. He continued, “Direct Impact was a natural choice. We’re confident that our non-manufacturing clients will be well served by this transaction, and that our transitioned employees will have a terrific opportunity for growth and development with a world-class employer.”

FreePoint will continue to offer custom software development services and will now serve manufacturing clients exclusively. It will also provide customization of FreePoint ShiftWorx products and custom integrations with ERP and other systems using the ShiftWorx Public API.

Direct Impact Solutions, headquartered in Laval, Québec with offices in North America and Europe, provides custom business application solutions based on FileMaker, web, mobile, and cloud technology. Philippe Lazzaroni, President of Direct Impact, said “We look forward to welcoming our new team members and working with a diverse set of new customers. As a leader in the FileMaker market, a Claris Platinum Partner, and a member of both the Microsoft Partner Network and the Apple Consultants Network (ACN), we appreciate the trust FreePoint has placed in us and we look forward to a successful transition of this business.”

The transaction closed on March 10. Both companies are private, and the terms of the transaction are not being disclosed.
