KORE Software and SponServe Join Forces

KORE Software is delighted to announce their acquisition of SponServe, the global leaders in sponsorship activation management software. SponServe’s software will become part of the KORE Software suite of products, enhancing the functionality of KORE’s current KONNECT™ sponsorship activation tool.

The acquisition further grows KORE’s capabilities and cements their position as a global leader in CRM and business management software for sports, entertainment and brands.

The move means KORE Software will provide unparalleled sponsorship inventory management and reporting platforms. Alongside its suite of applications that include Ticketing & Fan Engagement, Sponsorship & Partner Engagement™, KONNECT, Suites & Premium, and Data Warehouse & Analytics, KORE Software will now boast the most robust and popular sponsorship and inventory management platform in the industry.

SponServe’s exceptional fulfillment capabilities, and KORE’s leading asset management and deal creation functionality, will combine to offer customers a world-class experience throughout the entire sponsorship lifecycle from one platform.

The acquisition will also expand KORE Software’s international footprint. Having served upwards of 450 professional and college sport clubs, leagues, properties and brands across the world, the addition of SponServe increases that number to more than 550, including teams in every major global market.

Todd Cusolle, CEO of KORE Software

“We’re delighted to welcome SponServe to the team and are extremely excited to see it as part of the KORE suite of products, expanding our offer globally. KORE’s fundamental aim to help businesses sell smarter, act faster, and engage deeper are perfectly complimented by SponServe’s approach. Ultimately, it is a business which allows brands and rights holders to spend less time reporting and monitoring their partnerships, and more time building relationships with one another. The fit for us is perfect and we look forward to showcasing our new enhanced offer to customers.”

Mark Thompson, Managing Director of SponServe

“With KORE’s backing, this is a great opportunity for SponServe to expand its operations and support more businesses around the world. Originally, we wanted to create a system that automated the administrative tasks around fulfillment and delivery, providing total oversight across inventories to maximize the time clients spent building relationships. Today, we sit as global leaders in that field and I’m extremely proud of the work the team have done to get here. Alongside KORE, we’ll be able to take SponServe to the next level.”

What Does This Mean for Our Customers?

Importantly, the SponServe brand will continue to exist internationally, led by Mark Thompson and current senior management, supported by KORE Software’s global leadership team, based in New York, U.S.A. Thanks to the correlation of the two business practices, there will be no disruption to current client deliveries.

By welcoming SponServe’s 100+ clients into the KORE family, they will receive access to KORE’s unparalleled Customer Success and Insights and Analytics Teams. SponServe’s customers will now also become part of a network of the world’s most sophisticated teams and rights holders who they can exchange ideas and share best practices with.
