by BIZ. Staff

Twin Engine Labs and Lunabyte have announced today the successful merger of their business operations, services, and intellectual property.

The merger aims to offer a new, unified product line for their customers, bringing both custom app development and digital media management services under one roof for the ArkLaTex region and the nation.

Twin Engine Labs, founded in 2010, gained notoriety quickly after receiving worldwide acclaim for their breakthrough storybook app, “The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore” in collaboration with the Oscar winning 3D animation firm, the former Moonbot Studios.

During the years after, Twin Engine Labs was proud to serve Groupon, Symantec, Cisco Networks, Red Ball Oxygen, FibreBond, Rimcor, and many other household names, accomplishing what many thought impossible without significantly increasing investments.

Creating his second digital agency after his first was acquired by local IT services provider ECS/Synapse, Randall Ache launched Lunabyte in 2016 and specialized in custom WordPress development, social media marketing, and digital services management for local businesses in the area.

Among their many happy customers in such a short period, LunaByte enjoyed the praises from local companies like Metro Aviation, Caddo Parish School Board, Biomedical Research Foundation, Etheridge Electric, Aeropres, and even the David Toms Foundation.

Together under their new brand, RubyShore Software, they will provide a robust set of services, including: Social Media Management for small businesses, website and custom WordPress development, integrations of aging software, custom solutions for RFID-based equipment tracking, and mobile app development for businesses wanting to push their operations into the modern age.

Keith Hanson, founder and CEO of Twin Engine Labs comments, “Both of our teams were working well together prior to our merger discussions. But as soon as it became apparent to our teams that we were in talks, it was phenomenal to watch the creativity and excitement around our combined services. We can now proudly claim to be one of the easiest firms in Shreveport to work with to get all of your business’s digital and technology needs met, under one roof and with local staff.”

Randall Ache, founder and CEO of LunaByte, said “We wanted to merge our teams and companies so that both of us could build something greater than the sum of its parts. We brought skills and insights to the table their team didn’t have, and vice-versa. It ended up being a match right from the start, and now we can offer much more complete services to every customer.”
