AUSTIN, TX  (September 29, 2011) ESW Capital, LLC, a member of the Versata family of companies, announces today the acquisition of privately held Agentek, Inc. (Agentek), a results-driven leader in the design, deployment, and support of real-time mobile solutions for field service and delivery.

Integration will begin with implementation of Versata’s Customer Success program, a proven method for driving successful customer relationships and alignment of product development investments with customer priorities.

“Versata’s history of innovation with streamlined engineering, coupled with intense customer focus, provides an exciting future for Agentek,” said Robert Skinner, Agentek President and CEO. “Versata has a proven Customer Success program that Agentek customers will benefit from immediately.”

Versata executive Karl Dahlgren will succeed Skinner as CEO of Agentek. “I am thrilled to be a part of Agentek’s future,” said Dahlgren. “Agentek’s current ROI model has shown incredible service chain productivity gains of up to 40 percent in enterprise level engagements  we are driven to improve that even further.”
