Share

Sigma Systems, the global leader in catalog-driven software is pleased to announce its acquisition by Hansen Technologies, a leader in billing, data management and customer care solutions for the Energy, Water, Pay-TV, and Telecommunications industries. Upon closing of the sale, Hansen will acquire full ownership of Sigma Systems. Hansen Technologies is a publicly traded company listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX:HSN).

In today’s highly disruptive environment, service providers are focusing on how to accelerate product and service innovation, transforming their businesses into digital organizations that can more effectively create new innovative offerings, sell them without friction in the customer’s channel of choice, and deliver those services as promised. From digital service innovation through to revenue realization and customer support, the acquisition of Sigma and the resulting combined product offerings of the two companies will further strengthen and expand the value proposition across the Telecom, Media, IoT, Energy and Utilities industries we serve. The combination of these two fast-growing companies creates an even stronger organization with greater expertise, a deeper bench of talented delivery specialist, expanded R&D scale and a broader diversification of our business across industry verticals.

Andrew Hansen, Chief Executive Officer of Hansen Technologies, commented: “It’s with great enthusiasm that I welcome Sigma Systems to the Hansen Technologies Group. The acquisition represents a strategic move to enhance our value proposition to the telecom, pay-tv and energy verticals. Over the course of the last ten years, we have driven an exceptional growth strategy through acquisitions, achieving a compound annual growth rate of 28% over the last 4 years. Bringing Sigma Systems onboard further strengthens our ability to provide valuable solutions to our customer base and creates new expansion opportunities to cross-sell Sigma’s software solutions into our broad base of energy customers.”

Tim Spencer, Chief Executive Officer of Sigma Systems, commented: “With over a 23-year history serving the needs of the telecom industry, it is with great pride that we move to the next chapter in Sigma’s history. In the last year, Sigma has been pursuing an aggressive growth strategy through increased focus on product and cloud adoption, growth through adjacent verticals, and an enhanced go-to-market partner strategy. The acquisition of Sigma by Hansen Technologies represents two strong companies coming together, a strong combined value proposition, and the acceleration of the Sigma strategy. We look forward to the new opportunities in front of us to drive value for Sigma and Hansen customers and shareholders of the company.”

Laser System Partnership Sets Sights on Ending Toll Road Delays17.10.2019 22:00:00 CESTPress release

A new technology partnership is set to transform road tolling for both providers and motorists alike by utilizing the latest advances in lidar technology and data analytics. Cepton Technologies, Inc. has collaborated with industrial perception and machine learning experts, MechaSpin, to develop a lidar-based solution that produces detailed 3D classification of vehicles in real time for automated tolling applications. This next-generation solution combines Cepton’s Sora-P60 with MechaSpin’s MSx software to enable immediate profiling and classification of vehicles at highway speeds in a wide range of weather and lighting conditions. Traditional tolling systems often depend on physical infrastructure to reduce vehicle speed, or tollbooths to allow for manual processing, which can cause congestion and frustration amongst motorists. Advanced systems that allow for faster tolling, however, are often subject to abuses such as leakage, while road-based sensors often fail due to wear and tear.
