Comarch takes over 2CSI
Comarch has acquired 100 per cent of shares in the French company CABINET CONSEIL EN STRATEGIE INFORMATIQUE S.A.S. (hereinafter referred to as 2CSI), which specializes in providing IT solutions and services to medical entities on the French market. As part of the agreement, Comarch also acquires all copyrights to the company’s products. The total transaction value was PLN 9.5 million.
2CSI has been present on the market for more than 25 years and develops its own software to support the computerization of medical facilities and companies operating in the market of remote home care for patients. Additionally, the company has a certified data centre (HDS), from which it provides hosting services for its customers.
The company has implemented and maintains its systems for more than 100 customers from the healthcare sector, mainly operating on the commercial market, including LVL Medical (international Air Liquide Group), TIMKL (international Roche Group) and several dozen clinics and hospitals.
“In our opinion, the computerization of the health care sector, and in particular the segment of remote home care for patients, is an area that will develop very dynamically. The cumulative annual growth rate of this market in France over the last 10 years is over 8%. In the context of the current situation, we do not doubt that this market will record double-digit growth. At Comarch, we have been preparing for this for many years and investing in research and development of appropriate systems that support companies operating in the healthcare market, including the provision of medical services, mainly in the field of telemedicine, remote medical care and management of specialist documentation. Taking over of 2CSI is a major step towards strengthening Comarch’s position in this segment of IT solutions. Specialised staff, a large group of active clients, mature product lines offered by the acquired company will allow us to achieve significant synergies, expand Comarch’s portfolio and, as a result, win new contracts on European markets. The acquisition of 2CSI shares has been prepared for nearly 12 months and supported by intensive market analysis. Current events have only strengthened our belief that Comarch, together with 2CSI, with its deep know-how, IT products and infrastructure, will be able to offer comprehensive and innovative tools to support health care efforts”, says Arkadiusz Ilgowski, Country Manager France at Comarch.
The main IT solutions offered by 2CSI in the cloud model are systems that comprehensively support the functioning of medical facilities and private companies providing remote home care services to patients with chronic diseases.
The purchase of 2CSI will enable the Comarch Group to significantly strengthen its competitive position in the area of IT services in the e-Health sector on the European market.
