With the acquisition of IT company Centomedia, Digitopia will become the largest Belgian player in digital signage. Both companies will merge into the Digitopia Group. With the acquisition, Digitopia Group will realize a turnover of 10 million euros and manage more than 25,000 digital touch points in six countries. Its offices in Schilde, Paal-Beringen and Kortrijk now employ a total of 45 people. Jan Bussels remains CEO and, together with Sylvie Van de Leest, takes care of the daily management of the group.
Further development for Centoview CMS
"With the acquisition of Centomedia, Digitopia Group becomes by far the largest Belgian player in digital signage," says CEO Jan Bussels. "The synergy between both companies and the joint know-how gives us the opportunity to become a major player on a European level as well. Both companies have a similar history, but at the same time there are different emphases. The focus on the development of Centoview (the CMS software package) to offer high self-reliance to its users fits seamlessly with the full-service communication capacity for which Digitopia is already known. With now more than forty product and communication specialists, we have the solution and experience to serve each market segment even better."
