ALPHARETTA, Ga., DENVER and MIAMI, June 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Bridgevine and Acceller today announced that their Boards of Directors have approved a definitive agreement for Acceller to merge with Bridgevine.

The proprietary, omni-channel ecommerce platform also enables partners to up-sell and cross-sell the right products to their customer base; increasing retention, decreasing costs and enhancing customer experience.

"The combination of Acceller and Bridgevine creates an exciting opportunity for our enterprise customers, our company and our employees" said Barry, "Steve McKean, Acceller's Founder and CEO, will be joining our Board of Directors.  He has built a fantastic team, an amazing portfolio of enterprise partners and a powerful sales platform.
