Our Timeline to success 


Delivering Business and Technology Solutions Since 1998


Capricorn Ventis (Capventis) was founded in 2006 as a result of the merger between Capricorn CMS and Ventis, CRM solution specialists since the late 90’s. We have clients across a range of industries served from our London and Dublin offices.



from CRM, BI and CX


From 2005 our specialist expertise in CRM extended into BI, embracing new data discovery technologies. The continued evolution of the internet as the platform for commerce, social media, and the explosion in channels and content has, in parallel, driven our focus on Customer Experience (CX).

Our value proposition now is as a Digital Solutions company. This combines our experience of CRM, CX and BI with new business models and emerging technologies. We provide digital solutions that are relevant to today’s needs, as well as being ready for tomorrow’s opportunities and challenges.


combining Leading Vendor Platforms & Solutions


We use proven, best-of-breed vendor technologies to deliver and integrate digital solutions. Cloud platforms and applications vary from fully featured, end-to-end solutions to more specialist applications. We advocate those that can be shaped, configured and extended uniquely for our clients.
