Indianapolis-based Sigma Micro announced earlier this month that it had acquired the intellectual property rights and other assets of Quark Commerce, a web-based marketing resource management application that helps retailers manage catalogs as well as e-mail and print advertising and analyze how well they’re targeting consumers. Quark Commerce is now one of several software modules included in the Sigma Commerce suite of retail operations software.
