After the announcement in December 2022 that Qognify had been acquired, the provider of video management systems (VMS) and enterprise incident management (EIM) solutions has now officially merged into the Safety, Infrastructure & Geospatial division of Hexagon.
“Qognify extends our real-time monitoring and security reach to detect, assess and respond to incidents, providing a more robust offering to the markets we serve,” said Steven Cost, President, Hexagon’s Safety, Infrastructure & Geospatial division.
According to the companies, the Qognify VMS and EIM platform (Situator) complement Hexagon’s broad technology portfolio including HxGN OnCall Dispatch in public safety and HxGN Connect in the smart cities and manufacturing sector. The organization also extends Hexagon’s reach into other markets including commercial, retail, financial and business services, where its solutions can also aid enterprise operations.
“Qognify and Hexagon solutions have successfully been deployed together for large projects. Now as one, Qognify and Hexagon provide a truly comprehensive proposition for organizations to optimize and safeguard their world for customers, employees, citizens and communities,” said Steve Shine, CEO and President of Qognify.
With the acquisition now official, Hexagon’s solution offerings will now greatly expand and the company will likely see a range of new deals as a result.
For example, the recent announcement that the University of Vermont has implemented the new Qongify VMS, demonstrates the strength of the company and why the acquisition should strengthen Hexagon within the market.
