North Plains, a digital-asset management provider based in Toronto, has purchased VYRE, a UK-based developer of marketing resource management (MRM) and brand asset management (BAM) software.
 
The acquisition, according to North Plains, extends its reach into the MRM space, which is to be leveraged with the company's existing expertise in digital and brand management tools to establish a full creative asset lifecycle on a single platform. North Plains focuses on helping companies effectively use their visual media content like images, photos, videos and 3D designs.

“This acquisition continues our rigorous focus on enabling North Plains customers to better connect and engage with their target audience by unleashing the power of their visual media," stated James Christopher, President and CEO, North Plains. “We’re fortunate enough to work with some of the most innovative brands in the world, helping them to create brand value and drive business growth.”


In May 2011, VYRE launched its On Brand technology as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution to provide management of brand guidelines, brand assets and creative workflows. VYRE also previously developed Unify, which is a Web-based marketing application platform.


With offices in Canada, the United States and Europe, North Plains claims to provide its technologies to more than 1,400 clients and 1,000,000 users, worldwide.
