Altia acquires Badger Software

Altia has acquired critical incident management software, Badger Software.

Badger develops covert and overt solutions for UK and international law enforcement, as well as commercial organisations. The business’ core proposition, CLIO (Central Logging of Intelligence Operations), was jointly developed with the UK police and emergency services.

As part of the acquisition, Badger Software founder and managing director, Rob Brigham, will join Altia as head of Crime in Action Solutions.

Rob Sinclair, CEO of Altia, said: “We want to continue to create the latest cutting-edge software that will transform the way the public and private sector tackle investigations. The addition of CLIO software complements our proposition perfectly and supports us toward these ambitious plans, helping us expand into the critical incident management space.

“Rob’s extensive experience is a huge asset to Altia, and being able to include a crimes in action solution in our existing product offering is a great addition. I’m delighted to have Rob join our growing team, and I’m looking forward to seeing what we can achieve together.”

Brigham added: We are incredibly proud of what we have built here at Badger Software, in particular the market leading CLIO software and the fanatical support that we receive from our loyal customers. Joining the Altia group adds significantly to our capability and provides a fantastic opportunity to grow, not just within the United Kingdom but also overseas.”

“We have known Altia for some time and share many customers. Their reputation in the market and focus on great customer service meant that they were the obvious choice for us to work with. Together, our complimentary products will create a complete solution for managing all manner of incidents and investigations. The ambition and values we found at Altia make this an exciting venture which will ensure better outcomes and greater efficiency for our customers.”
