Just in time for Independence Day, Convio has announced plans to purchase the British company Baigent Digital. The Austin-based online fundraising and constituent management (CRM) firm, which serves more than 1,400 nonprofits, payed $2.9 million for Baigent, and may be on the hook for another $400,000 depending on the performance of the company.
Founded in 1997, Baigent is one of the UK's leading digital strategy, design and technology implementation firms. The current plan is for Convio to offer their fundraising services to British charities. At a later, yet to be determined date, they will offer additional services, including CRM.
