Pivotal, a company focusing on cloud software and innovations with offices in Denver recently acquired local user-experience (UX) company Slice of Lime. The purchase will help Pivotal expand its UX services and software offerings to its clients and their users.
Slice of Lime has been recognized many times as a leading UX company. In 2014, UX Magazine awarded it with the Effective Agency Award in the Design for Experience Awards. It was also recognized by Outside as one of the best places to work in 2015.
"Combining Pivotal's multidisciplinary UX and user interface (UI) design methodologies with Slice of Lime's talent will help us meet a rapidly growing client demand," explains Drew McManus, a vice president at Pivotal Labs. "We're excited to continue to deliver solutions that can transform the future of engaging digital experiences."
"We've partnered with Pivotal on several projects for over five years," says Slice of Lime CEO Kevin Menzie. "We share an iterative approach, a focus on collaboration, and we require empathy for users -- all things that embody the way we think about designing products and working with clients."
"The exciting thing about what Pivotal is doing is that no company, no industry, no person in the world is left untouched by this digital revolution," Menzie says. He says the company's technologies are helping build autonomous vehicles, helping doctors create more effective, DNA-targeted therapy and helping financial companies detect fraud faster, among other things. "The sheer variety of ways our team can help employ our extensive UX design experience in areas such as the Internet of Things, enterprise big data, consumer web and mobile applications is exciting. Joining Pivotal exposes us to so many more clients doing fascinating work as they transform into technology and innovation-driven organizations."
After the acquisition is complete, Slice of Lime will be integrated into Pivotal's Denver and Boulder offices; Slice of Lime already has offices in both cities.
