Versaterm Public Safety Strengthens Its Portfolio with the Acquisition of IAPro from CI Technologies
Addition of IAPro, BlueTeam, EIPro, and MakeNOTE into Versaterm's Ecosystem to Enhance Operational Efficiency and Keep Communities Safe
OTTAWA, Ontario – March 16, 2023 – Versaterm Public Safety, a global public safety solutions leader, announced today its acquisition of CI Technologies, a provider of professional standards, internal affairs, wellness and early intervention software for law enforcement agencies. The acquisition includes CI Technologies' complete line of solutions, including IAPro NextGen, Public Portal, BlueTeam, EIPro, and MakeNOTE, designed to help law enforcement uphold professional standards and integrity. The integration of CI Technologies' solutions with Versaterm's comprehensive public safety ecosystem aims to strengthen the capabilities of public safety agencies, increase the efficiency and effectiveness of their operations, and improve community service, engagement, and safety.
"Our commitment remains to serve the mission of our customers. We continue to expand our ecosystem to solve the present and future challenges of the public safety community," said Warren Loomis, President & CEO of Versaterm Public Safety. "With the addition of CI Technologies' capabilities and experienced leadership, we can help agencies eliminate information silos across departments, enable more streamlined workflows and power data-driven decisions, thereby strengthening the mutual trust between agencies and the communities they serve."
Founded in 1992, CI Technologies' solutions are utilized by more than 950 public safety agencies across the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. The solutions aid in facilitating constructive training conversations with officers to reinforce best practices in the field, visualize trends, identify areas of potential concern, and make early interventions to uphold agency standards. With the growing emphasis on accountability and transparency, their solutions are crucial in helping preserve their integrity and reputation.
By combining the proven competencies and workflows of both companies, agencies can capture previously unavailable information for a more comprehensive understanding of operations to gain data-driven insight into officer performance, driving continuous improvements:
IAPro NextGen provides a single platform for investigators and supervisors to manage and analyze internal affairs cases. Integrating this with Versaterm's Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) and Record Management System (RMS) systems for a complete and accurate picture of events
BlueTeam is a premier platform for supervisory oversight and organizational accountability. Combining this capability with smartphone body or dash cam footage captured during incidents by Visual Labs will streamline use of force investigations
EIPro is a next-gen early intervention platform for front-line supervisors and analysts. By using EIPro with the Public Portal and MakeNOTE solution for performance documentation and Versaterm's SPIDR Tech community feedback tool, agencies will have a consolidated view of officer performance
"We're excited for the next chapter of our Company's journey. Our shared goal of supporting public safety agencies in their mission to protect and serve their communities will remain intact. Through our collaboration, we aim to empower supervisors and officers to provide exceptional service, ensuring that every interaction in all areas of public safety operations leads to a positive experience for community members," stated Michael Blumberg, Founder and CEO of CI Technologies.
Versaterm Public Safety is executing a highly strategic and expansive growth strategy, manifested by its latest acquisition of CI Technologies. Through a discerning approach, the organization strives to acquire companies that synergize with existing products and services, broaden market penetration, and fortify its leadership position in the industry. The addition of CI Technologies represents a significant milestone for changing how public safety agencies meet the evolving needs of their communities.
Bulkley Capital, LP and Barnes & Thornburg LLP acted as financial advisor and legal counsel, respectively, to CI Technologies, and Baker Newman Noyes LLC and Baker Tilly WM LLP provided accounting and tax representation to CI Technologies.
