New name: Empolis GmbH becomes Attensity Europe GmbH
Living-e AG to merge with Attensity Europe GmbH / Common worldwide presence under the Attensity brand marks final step in integration into Attensity Group
Living-e AG and Empolis GmbH had merged with Attensity Corp. of Palo Alto (USA) in April of 2009 to form Attensity Group. The group of companies is now completing the last step in its integration with the common worldwide presence under the Attensity brand. Attensity Europe GmbH will nonetheless continue to operate as a legally independent German limited liability company.
“We’ve cooperated closely in the past few months to implement a successful merger, and we can say with pride that the combined company is stronger today than ever before,” said Guido Polko, CEO of Living-e AG and Chief Strategy and Integration Officer of Attensity Group.
In recent months, the software solutions and services of the participating partner companies were integrated as part of the merger. Dr. Stefan Wess, General Manager of Attensity Europe GmbH, explained: “We’ve already profited greatly from our merger. Our ability to act as a single source offering combined products and technologies from leading specialists in the fields of text analysis, knowledge management, multi-channel communications and information management solutions has been very well received by European markets. The signs continue to point to growth.”
Ian Bonner, CEO of Attensity Group: “Our presence under a common umbrella brand increases our impact in worldwide markets. We’re creating new shareholder value through synergies, complementary technologies and regional market presences around the globe. We offer our customers an integrated portfolio of software applications based on semantic technologies, which they can use to optimize their business processes.”
Attensity announced yesterday, April 28, 2010 that it acquired Biz360, the leader in social media intelligence. More information about that acquisition can be found here: www.attensity.com
