Paris — Neopost today announced the divestment of Human Inference, a leading Data Quality software provider based in Arnhem, in the Netherlands, to EDM Media Group, a leading Data-driven marketing strategy provider based in Nieuwegein, in the Netherlands.
Geoffrey Godet, Chief Executive Officer of Neopost, declared: "The refocusing of the Group’s operations is instrumental to deploy our resources on our four major businesses, accelerate our transformation and achieve our goals. Along with the disposal of Satori Software announced on 29 January 2019, the divestment of Human Inference is a further step in the execution of our “Back to Growth” strategy.”
The divestment of Human Inference comes as a result of the strategic review of Neopost portfolio of business activities that has been conducted by the Group.
