Blue Compass Acquires Aureon Web Solutions

With Blue Compass soon celebrating its 10th anniversary, I’ve been looking back at what has been an amazing experience. We started with two people, a couple of computers and a desire to be the best at just one medium: the web.

We certainly weren’t perfect in the early days. We made mistakes and struggled at times, but thankfully, we hired smart people and were able to form a great team. Each year, our team has grown in members and capabilities, which has been a wonderful blessing. Every time a new client or team member joins Blue Compass, we celebrate. For that reason, I’m incredibly excited to announce the acquisition of Aureon’s Web Solutions business!


A Promising Opportunity 

Aureon has helped organizations run smoothly for over 25 years. Their experts provide high-quality business solutions, such as, voice and data communications, network support and staffing assistance.

Blue Compass has enjoyed a great relationship with Aureon, and has a lot of respect for their team. I’ve spent quite a bit of time with Aureon’s leadership, and have been very impressed with the character they demonstrate. This is a company that deeply cares for its employees and its clients, something that became very apparent as we discussed this interesting opportunity with them.  

Among Aureon’s many services are web design and development, which it has offered for over a decade. Having always been impressed with the expertise of their web team, we began talking to Aureon about this department a number of months ago. After a few conversations, it became clear that we shared very similar ideologies about digital development and marketing. Excitement grew as we discussed the opportunities a new alignment would bring for clients of Aureon and Blue Compass.

Today, we’re excited to announce the result of that alignment. We have acquired the Web Solutions division of Aureon, increasing the number of clients we serve by approximately 35 percent.

These clients will now have access to a wider array of web design and development services, as well as our intranet development and mobile app offerings. They will also gain access to our deep digital marketing services, including our award-winning search engine optimization and the benefits of our status as an official Google Partner.

We could not be more delighted to serve these clients, many of whom still have access to Aureon’s other services. 

Our Team Continues to Grow

Additionally, Aureon’s web design and development team will be joining us. This is a group of talented individuals that we have enjoyed getting to know over the course of 2017. The growth of our current team means that Blue Compass’ clients will now have access to more web design and development offerings. While we are officially a .NET development company, this growth greatly deepens our capabilities in Wordpress, Drupal and PHP development. 

Our team is thrilled to grow and expand its expertise, but the most exciting results of this endeavor, are the increased opportunities for our clients. 

Thanks to a Wonderful Partner

I’d like to personally thank our friends at Aureon for the partnership and the dedication to quality, for its clients and their team. We love serving our clients with the best digital marketing and development available, and this new opportunity from Aureon, allows us to do so more than ever before.
