In 2013, global investment firm Vista Equity Partners (Vista) merged Digital Technology International (DTI) and Saxotech to create NEWSCYCLE Solutions, a leading provider of software and services powering media-rich industries.

In April 2019, NEWSCYCLE Solutions rebranded as Naviga to reinforce its commitment to preparing customers for the future. The rebranding was part of a larger pivot to embracing a customer-centric strategy and providing a digital-first product. In pursuit of this mission, Naviga has completed more than ten acquisitions over the course of Vista’s ownership. Through both organic and inorganic growth opportunities, Naviga has scaled its product suite and expanded its influence and expertise to better serve customers. Today, Naviga is a trusted partner to over 3,200 news media, broadcast, magazine, financial services and corporate clients in 45 countries.

As Naviga continues to expand and evolve, its partnership with Vista is a key accelerator of growth. Vista’s Value Creation Team provides operational guidance, hands-on support and access to an ecosystem of 80+ enterprise software companies. Together, Naviga and Vista are building a stronger, more resilient business with exciting opportunities ahead.

We see the formation of NEWSCYCLE Solutions as an incredible opportunity to innovate and evolve how the local news media marketplace is served. The combined company will have the scale, breadth and resources to support the industry and its technological needs in the years to come – a long-term win for all stakeholders.

About Vista Equity Partners

Vista Equity Partners is an Austin, Texas-based company that exclusively invests in enterprise software, data, and technology-enabled companies. Vista was founded in 2000 by CEO and Chairman Robert F. Smith. An entrepreneur with a background in technology, Smith brought his expertise in leveraging corporate best practices and applying them to technologically advanced, but less efficient businesses in order to improve their productivity and profitability.

Vista believes the transformative power of technology is the key to an even better future — a smarter economy, a healthier planet and greater opportunities for underserved communities. The firm invests in the companies and leaders at the forefront of the digital revolution — a strategy Vista sees as the best use of capital anywhere in the financial markets.
