Chicago web development firm ePublishing, Inc., has purchased the World Company’s Ellington content management system and its Marketplace business directory platform. Terms of the deal were not released.
The deal was finalized today.
The Journal-World reported on the pending sale Monday.
“With this announcement, our first priority will be uninterrupted service for all Ellington CMS and Ellington Marketplace customers,” Thomas Chaffee, CEO of ePublishing, said in a statement. “We look forward to continuing development, implementation and ongoing support as we personally welcome each Ellington customer to the ePublishing family.”
Last month, the World Company announced a restructuring, essentially shutting down its Mediaphormedia operation, which provided support for Ellington clients.
