HistoryEdit

Extensis and its parent company CreativePro.com were sold to ImageX in year 2000, which in turn sold Extensis to Japanese content-management company Celartem Technology in 2002.[2] In 2003, Extensis acquired competitor DiamondSoft and their Font Reserve applications (stand-alone and client-server).[3] In January 2006, Extensis merged its two font management products, Font Reserve and Suitcase into a single product called Suitcase Fusion.[4] In August 2010, Extensis launched WebINK, a web font subscription service.[5] This service was discontinued on July 1, 2015.[6]

In 2018, Extensis united with its sister company, LizardTech, to continue developing and distributing software solutions for compressing and distributing massive, high-resolution geospatial data.[7] With this move, GeoExpress, Express Server, and GeoViewer are a part of the Extensis suite of solutions.
