LCvista was envisioned by our founder, Scott McAfee after many years in the accounting learning and CPE compliance solution industry. A recurring theme from clients was the need for an integrated, flexible, reliable, and user-friendly system for administrators and firm professionals. Clients wanted a platform for internal and vendor learning content, the ability to build learning and curriculum plans, to track and monitor CPE and the ability to build customized reporting. A robust and reliable solution firms needed did not exist.
In March of 2016, Scott partnered with co-founder Aaron Duke and together they began to build LCvista. Aaron’s technical expertise and Scott’s industry knowledge enabled LCvista to do what other systems had failed to do: offer an all-in-one integrated solution that also allowed firms the flexibility of choice. Choice in CPE providers, choice in webcast delivery platforms, and choice in HRIS systems with a completely integrated solution. Choice without administrative burden.
Lisa Chamberlain (Heringlake) joined the team later that year and by leveraging the relationships they had collectively built over more than 10 years in the accounting industry. They met with firms to listen and learn how to build exactly what the firms themselves had envisioned. LCvista would not be what it is today without the diligence and willingness of those early firms.
In just a few short months since the foundation was laid, the first official client committed to the product and in 2017 the LCvista Full Product Suite and Compliance Solution became a reality.
In January 2023, with a strategic investment provided by Polaris Growth Fund, LCvista and Prolaera merged. Prolaera was launched in 2016 by founder Evan Hiner who had a similar vision to provide clients with an exceptional integrated accounting industry learning and CPE solution. The merger puts our combined company in a position of strength within our market and unlocks opportunities to accelerate growth. Our mission is to offer the best solutions, service, and value to our customers.
Today, our expanding LCvista team honors our roots and continuously commits to listening to its customers’ needs. Currently, the LCvista platforms enhance the learning experience and tracks compliance for over 207,000 professionals.
