Irish-based SkillSoft has agreed to purchase SumTotal, a Gainesville-based software company. SumTotal produces software for payroll, hiring and training management. The company, whose local offices are located on NW 43rd Street, employs nearly 1,000 people globally – 250 of which are here in Gainesville.
SumTotal moved to Gainesville from Silicon Valley in order to avoid the hypercompetitive environment for talent. Gainesville has provided an excellent lifestyle with ample access to talent, and SumTotal plans to stay and grow right here in Alachua County. With over half of Fortune 500 companies using SumTotal’s software, Gainesville should be very proud to have SumTotal as a part of the community!
