Dear Jazzit Clients:

Today, Caseware International, a global leader in cloud-enabled audit, financial reporting and data analytics solutions, announced the acquisition of Jazzit. This strategic move is part of Caseware’s commitment to expanding its offerings and better serving its customers.

For over 20 years, Jazzit has developed accounting templates leveraging Caseware’s software, and we believe that together we will further enhance the experience for our joint customers.

We look forward to further working with Caseware to develop Jazzit’s product and service offerings and continue building trusted relationships with our valued clients.

As we considered the future of Jazzit and ensuring that our customers and employees would be well taken care of, Caseware was an obvious choice to fulfill our objectives and further create meaningful value for our customers throughout Canada. We could not be more excited about our future together.

What does this mean for our customers?
We are proud of our strong market presence and customer relationships, and we will continue providing you with outstanding, innovative, business-critical solutions.

As a valued Jazzit customer, you should not experience any change or interruption from a product, support or sales perspective. While the Jazzit company brand will be transitioned to Caseware, the templates will continue to be sold under the Jazzit brand. Caseware will continue to support the Jazzit products for the foreseeable future, including support for any required updates driven by changes in standards.
