Capita acquires geospatial field worker solutions firm, Sigma Seven
Capita plc announces that it has acquired Sigma Seven Limited for an undisclosed sum.
Sigma Seven Ltd offers a specialist geospatial solution that allows users anywhere to access company files, organise their work, plan tasks and record data directly on to high-quality digital maps. This helps organisations get the most from their data, map and enterprise systems, enabling field and office staff to work together more efficiently. Sigma Seven’s clients include UK utility companies such as Scottish Power, UK Power Networks, Wales & West Utilities and Southern Water.
Since its acquisition of AMT-SYBEX in May 2014, Capita has strengthened its presence in the utilities and transport sectors providing digital mobile technology and Big Data software solutions. AMT-SYBEX has also been a partner of Sigma Seven and the combined product offering will represent an enhanced and highly complementary solution set that will now be available to clients.
Capita chief executive, Andy Parker, said: “The acquisition of Sigma Seven will provide further scale and depth to the range of solutions that Capita can offer utilities, construction & engineering, environment and government sectors. On integration, significant synergy benefits such as complementary products, an overlap in client base and prospective clients, will more strongly position Capita in the market when providing new and improved, tailored solutions.”
Sigma Seven has 33 employees based in Edinburgh.
