Javelin is being renamed to Capsule

Friday, January 29, 2010 by Duncan Stockdill

This weekend Javelin is being renamed to Capsule. Accounts on the system will continue as before with the same data, username and password.  However the URL that you use to access the CRM system will change and we’ll notify users of the new URL once the change over has completed. Integration with 3rd party applications will not be affected as we’ll continue to make the API available on the existing URL.

The reason for the name change is that we have been contacted by a company who has a trademark on the name Javelin.  While we don’t agree there is an infringement of their trademark we figure our time and resources are better spent building a great CRM rather than fighting court battles. We’ll share further details on this once the change over is complete.

To complete the changeover, Javelin will be unavailable this Sunday from 12:00 to 16:00 GMT.

Sorry to hear that guys, court action is never fun especially when you know you are right. But great decision on just moving on and focusing on what you do best! Your CRM product really is a great product!

Great move, love the new name. Keep building the product, it is fantastic, simple to use and it hits the spot.

Thanks for the kind words.  The messages we received back after sending out the notification email have been incredibly supportive.  We are very grateful for having such a great group of customers.  Looking forward to unveiling the new logo later today!
