Status Of Pivot3

As America begins to restart has anyone heard any news about the status of Pivot3?

Pivot3 Mass Layoffs

In late March IPVM reported that an estimated 75% of Pivot3 employees were dumped into the unemployment line and onto the doorstep of a global Pandemic. This must represent a huge intellectual loss, and resentment from former employees left struggling to pay mortgages, car loans and health care premiums...

I can't speak on a mass scale but I know of one Solutions Architect that was laid off in March but then hired back in June.

We are concerned about their situation but are still getting good support. Their product is very good so I am thinking that worst case they are acquired rather than disappear.

Per LinkedIn, Pivot3's employee count is down nearly 50% in the last 6 months:

The true decline is most certainly greater as some people do not update their LinkedIn profile.

However, also on LinkedIn, they continue to market.

Pivot3 is a hard company to understand. They have financial challenges, on and off, for years. Also, in our communications with them, they say everything is going great even weeks before the mass layoff. It's hard than to have much confidence in Pivot3.

They may survive, though given their challenged history, I would be very cautious about buying new products from Pivot3.

Thanks for the update John, I am sure that many former P3 employees will agree with you. "It's hard than to have much confidence in Pivot3." Especially those with medical expenses...

They are still in business and, to the best of my knowledge, stable in their smaller state than earlier in the year.

I have the same question about Pivot3. I have a customer who utilizes them and they are up for HW/SW maintenance agreement renewal. They don't want to spend any money on a sinking ship, but we just don't know how fast it is sinking... I'm in a tough spot on what to recommend for them with the cost being so high.
