CHICAGO — A graduate of the Wisconsin gener8tor program, Optyn announced it was acquired by Central Data Storage, a leader in providing software as a service to medical and specialty professionals, for an undisclosed amount.

“Optyn’s software and their team will help us serve our customers better than ever,” said CDS President/CEO Ed Conklin in a statement. “Small business owners love to use the simple marketing tool for a reason.”

Optyn was recently named one of the fastest-growing Chicago-area seed startups with more than 3,060-plus users in 115 cities around the world, according to the announcement. Optyn was a 2013 participant in Wisconsin’s premier accelerator program gener8tor.

“This is a terrific opportunity for CDS and its already impressive product and market reach,” Malkoc said. “We are excited that Optyn will play a role in helping them continue their impressive growth.”
