Applause Announces Acquisition by Vista Equity Partners

Today Applause announced that it has been acquired by Vista Equity Partners, a leading investment firm focused on software, data and technology-enabled businesses.

We’re extremely excited about joining Vista’s highly successful portfolio. Vista is second-to-none in terms of its resources and track record of moving companies that are already successful into hyper-growth. They have the support and expertise that can help Applause innovate and grow even faster.

This strong financial and operating partner will help us double down and scale our community and digital testing, user feedback and market insights offerings, as well as the technology platforms that support them.

While the infusion of new investments will help take us to the next level, Applause will continue to operate independently with no changes in executive leadership or staff levels.
