Montreal IT provider Acceo Solutions Inc. has acquired Groupe Techna Inc. (GTechna) and GTechna USA.

The latter, based in St-Laurent, QC develops automation systems for municipal organizations including parking management, law enforcement, police, public works, and has clients in North America, Mexico, Australia and Malaysia.

Acceo, which focuses on business and financial solutions, was ranked 17th on CDN’s Top 100 Solution Providers list for 2014.

“As part of a shift toward digital court processes, Acceo aims to extend its municipal services to other sectors, such as justice,” the company said. “The acquisition of GTechna is an important step forward in the field of law enforcement and public safety.”

The company said that the acquisition would help it grow in markets including Quebec and elsewhere in North America as well as in the municipal sector. As it stands, the solution provider claims to have about 1,000 employees in offices in Montreal, Dorval, Quebec City, Sherbrooke, St-Hyacinthe, Toronto and Winnipeg.
