Academic Software Plus, a University at Buffalo spinoff company, has graduated from the UB Technology Incubator after a stay of more than 10 years, during which the firm grew from a feisty startup into a mature business with a stable client base.
The company moved into new offices at 200 John James Audubon Parkway in Amherst, N.Y., about two miles from the incubator, on July 13.
Coinciding with the move, the firm is taking the name of its parent company, Liaison International, the Massachusetts-based admissions and accreditation software and solutions company that acquired Academic Software Plus as a subsidiary in 2001. Last year, Warburg Pincus, a well-respected private equity investor, acquired Liaison International and has supported its investment in products and services for the higher education market.
Today, Liaison International’s Amherst office provides software and support services that help universities manage admissions information for applicants to many health professions and other graduate programs, and evaluate students’ performance in clinical courses.
