LockerPulse Acquired by Local Company SportSpyder

Over on the LockerPulse blog I just made the announcement that LockerPulse has been acquired by SportSpyder. I copied that announcement below. The amazing part is that they’re also located in Albany and their president is also an RPI alumni. What are the odds! Needless to say we’re very excited to have such a great opportunity to sell the site to such an ideal company. More to come soon.

We’re excited to announce that LockerPulse has been acquired by SportSpyder. Effective 10/15/2014 LockerPulse.com will be redirected to SportSpyder.com and LockerPulse users will have the option of transferring their account to a free SportSpyder account.

SportSpyder is the perfect fit for LockerPulse users. Like us, they are located in Albany, NY, and like us, they’re obsessed with bringing you personalized sports news in real-time. In their own words:

SportSpyder makes it easy to find and subscribe to sports news for your favorite teams. We let you take it from there. Subscribe to your team’s feed, customize your news sources, or build your own team of players to keep track of. We bring them to you in real-time because nobody likes to wait. We have fancy algorithms to bring you the most relevant articles for each team.

Thank you for all of the support that you’ve given us these past 4+ years! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Sincerely,

The LockerPulse Team
