Three Pillar Software Acquires CloverLeaf Consulting

Fairfax, Virginia, September 15, 2009– Three Pillar Software, Inc. (Three Pillar), a leading provider of comprehensive product outsourcing solutions headquartered in Northern Virginia, is pleased to announce the acquisition of CloverLeaf Consulting (CloverLeaf).

An established provider of user experience consulting and user interface design, CloverLeaf will fold its capabilities into the Three Pillar offerings portfolio to constitute the company’s new usability service.

“Usability is one of the most critical areas of technological performance,” said Karen Castilon, director of product strategy at Three Pillar. “It’s integral to ensuring applications are developed with ease of use and smooth interactivity kept top of mind.”

As part of the acquisition, Patrick Sheridan, founder of CloverLeaf, will work closely with Karen Castilon, Three Pillar’s director for product strategy. Together, they will integrate CloverLeaf’s user experience and design expertise into Three Pillar’s Product Strategy practice.

“Joining forces with Three Pillar made perfect sense for us,” explained Sheridan, who will serve as the new Three Pillar director of business development. “We’re looking forward to taking our collaborative user experience strategies and enriched internet applications to a larger potential customer base. More and more clients and prospects are recognizing the need for strong usability; being able to deliver that as part of Three Pillar is a welcome opportunity.”

According to Castilon, the acquisition of CloverLeaf means Three Pillar is now able to provide services for every discipline of the software and/or application development lifecycle. This includes product strategy, product development, and product infrastructure.
