BEAVERTON, Ore., Jan. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Evisions, Inc., announced today it is acquiring Beaverton, OR-based Cayuse, Inc., to consolidate two leaders in higher education software solutions.

This win-win move unites Evisions' industry-leading enterprise reporting, form management, data transformation and payment processing solutions with Cayuse's web-based solutions for research management supporting sponsored projects for colleges and universities.

Evisions clients will benefit from the deep expertise and mature software solutions developed by Cayuse over the past 18 years to streamline grant proposal processes and accelerate research funding.

Because research administration and compliance management are strategic at higher education institutions, the expanded capabilities of the merged companies will help them meet the growing demand for the Cayuse Research Suite. 

"I'm excited to introduce these expanded capabilities to our loyal customer base," said Chris Harker, CEO and founder of Cayuse. "In combining with Evisions, we see an opportunity to bring a much more complete set of services and products to Cayuse customers. From them, we hear the need to address opportunities for enterprise-class reporting for the research organization, and the need to integrate research administration data into enterprise financial systems. These are two areas in which Evisions excels," Harker added. 

"We see many similarities in how Evisions and Cayuse treat clients," said Kevin Jones, president of Evisions. "Both companies enjoy a high degree of customer loyalty, which has been earned by involving customers in product development and providing outstanding support. We have common values in the way we do business, and that makes the complementary products and services all the more attractive," stated Jones.

Evisions intends to retain all current Cayuse employees and will be combining the Cayuse and Portland-based Evisions operations in the Portland area. More information on this announcement is located at www.evisions.com/cayuse.
