ClearCourse Partnership has acquired digital service provider NetXtra.

ClearCourse is a group of innovative technology companies providing membership software and digital capabilities to the events, sports and leisure sectors.

NetXtra, headquartered in Bury St Edmunds and co-founded in 1995 by MD Simon Hardingham, provides integrated digital services to the membership, charity, not-for-profit and eCommerce sectors.

Employing 25 people, NetXtra works with several leading unions, regulatory and awarding bodies, and membership organisations including the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT), the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) and Coeliac UK.

“Over the past 20 years NetXtra have grown to become a trusted partner and leading provider of digital services to not for profits, charities, unions and, more recently, eCommerce businesses,” said Hardingham.

“Joining ClearCourse is an ideal opportunity for us to capitalise on our leading position in order to deliver our services to a wider range of clients.

“The Partnership’s collaborative approach suits us perfectly and we’re very much looking forward to what the future holds.”

The financial terms of the deal are undisclosed.

The deal represents ClearCourse’s sixth acquisition and expands the range of digital services that it can provide to membership organisations.

Since its foundation in October 2018, ClearCourse has acquired five other UK-based software and service providers: MillerTech, Silverbear, Clear Direct Debit, APT Solutions and Circdata.

Gerry Gualtieri, CEO of ClearCourse, commented: “We are delighted to welcome NetXtra to the ClearCourse Partnership.

“The company has a fantastic reputation among clients and peers alike and the deal represents an excellent opportunity to expand our offering to the Partnership’s existing clients.

“We are looking forward to working with the NetXtra team to establish it as the go-to provider of digital services across our multiple sectors.”
