Novation Companies Acquires IVR Central

KANSAS CITY, MO, Nov 08, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Novation Companies, Inc., (OTCQB: NOVC) announced today a majority acquisition of cloud-based business communications company IVR Central, LLC. Subsequent to the acquisition, the name was changed to CorvisaCloud LLC and products will be delivered under the CorvisaCloud brand. This is the fifth acquisition for Novation, a company that owns and operates early-stage businesses in the technology-enabled services industry.

CorvisaCloud, based in Milwaukee, provides a complete suite of customizable call center and small business voice communications solutions. Leveraging a cloud-based platform to ensure affordability and scalability, CorvisaCloud's products include IVR (Interactive Voice Response), Visual IVR, virtual desktop telephony, ACD (Automated Call Distribution), dialer, voice broadcasting, and secure call recording with phonetic search.

"Novation has used CorvisaCloud's products during the past year to support our call centers. Their functionality and customization capabilities far exceeded any business-class solution we have used over the years and we knew that their technologies, culture and innovative approach to solving business problems fit what we look for in a Novation company," said Lance Anderson, Novation chief executive officer. "By connecting them with Novation's operational leadership capabilities and shared services, we will help them expand the breadth and depth of their product suite and market reach." CorvisaCloud will be the first product line introduced by the new products division of Novation subsidiary and technology company Corvisa Services LLC, based in Milwaukee. To date, Corvisa has developed industry-leading technologies and provided shared services for the Novation portfolio companies.

"Business leaders are always seeking ways to reduce overhead costs and capital expenses, and a growing number of businesses are looking at cloud-based solutions to accomplish that. CorvisaCloud's cloud-based platform addresses a real challenge that call centers and small businesses alike face -- the difficulty of balancing business and customer service best practices with upfront and ongoing cost management," said Steve Haslam, Novation chief operating officer.

"Now we can provide a 'one-stop' communications suite that enables businesses of all sizes to achieve enterprise-level communications and call center functionality at substantially reduced costs." Paul Gregory, Novation's director of business development, will take over as managing director of CorvisaCloud.
