On 1 July 2021, ACTIA Telecom, the telecommunications division of the ACTIA Group, acquired the software business of HYMATOM, a company specializing in Video Management Systems (VMS).
A LOGICAL ACQUISITION IN LINE WITH ACTIA’S RECENT ACTIVITIES
This business transaction is in fact the continuation of a close collaboration that began in 2019 between ACTIA Telecom and HYMATOM regarding the development of VMS software for public safety purposes. The acquisition concerns the ownership of the software solution and the development activity and services associated with it.
ACTIA Telecom now provides the operational maintenance services for the software solution contracts. These services will be performed by the same staff, who are now employed by ACTIA Telecom.
