Canadian business analytics company Attain Insight is set to acquire Integeo’s map intelligence assets and intellectual property, with expectations to close the deal on December 24.

Founded in 2008 by Paul Hulford, Ottawa-based Attain Insight is an advisor and provider of SaaS solutions, such as business intelligence (BI), performance management, predictive analytics, information and data security, role-based access control (RBAC), as well as software license compliance and audit reporting.

Attain Insight also offers Attain Insight Security, a product built to handle enterprise security requirements across multiple BI platforms to ensure operators have secure access to business analytics and geospatial data.

The company is purchasing the location analytics product suite from Integeo to advance its own geospatial and interactive visualization products.

“[Integeo] has provided innovative mapping capabilities through their map intelligence product since 2004,” said Paul Hulford, CEO of Attain Insight, adding that Integeo’s offering will support Attain Insight’s international expansion and faster delivery of analytics solutions.

A shortened version of ‘Integrating geography,’ Integeo was incorporated in 2004 to develop and commercialize a mapping analytics platform as a turnkey solution for BI tools and mapping platforms.

Its map intelligence solution provides mapping analytic capabilities, enabling users to gain further insight into their time and location data. The product also features a direct connection to third-party data including population numbers, demographics, weather information or other geospatial data as a service.

According to Integeo, its map intelligence platform is used by government officials, front desk operations staff, business analysts, and non-IT report designers.

Headquartered in Sydney, Australia, Integeo also has branch offices in Canberra, the capital city of Australia; Ottawa; and London, United Kingdom. Integeo is part of the Forge Holdings group of companies and was launched following the sale of Forge’s Business Intelligence products company, QIQ Solutions, to Hyperion in July 2004.

Integeo launched its Ottawa office in 2015, which will be combined with Attain Insight’s existing headquarters in the city.
