ClickSoftware buys California company

ClickSoftware Technologies Ltd., a business software company with offices in Burlington and Israel, said Tuesday that it had agreed to buy Xora Inc. of Mountain View, Calif., for about $14.7 million.

Xora, whose partners include Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint, specializes in cloud-based systems for managing mobile workers. When completed, the transaction will broaden the range of complementary services that ClickSoftware can offer to its customers.

“By combining ClickSoftware’s sophisticated, highly configurable offerings for the large and higher end of the mid-size enterprise market with Xora’s suite of configurable, ready-to-use solutions for the lower end of the mid-size and small business market, we achieve the strategic objective to offer a complete portfolio of best-in-class mobile apps for all business roles, in all size companies, in all industry verticals,” ClickSoftware chief executive Moshe BenBassat said.
