Goodbye Acresso, We Hardly Knew Ye

I read the news today that Acresso is changing it’s name to Flexera.

Huh? Why?

As if the makers of InstallShield hadn’t already done enough damage to their brand, let’s just go change names yet again!

BTW, Flexera is already taken by a company in the alternative energy market. Anyone want to take a guess which one of these companies actually stands a chance of being in a high growth market for the next ten years?

    They were forced to change again because they chose a name that was very similar to another tech company Agresso and therefore had copyright/trademark problems…along with all their other ones!

    Looks like they need to be careful with name no.3 too…!
