FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Intermedix Corporation announced Wednesday that it has completed the acquisition of Optima Corporation.
Based in Auckland, New Zealand, Optima provides technology to support simulation, predictive analytics and real-time deployment of mobile resources. Optima’s technologies are used by both the government and private sector, including a number of emergency response agencies and airlines.
“Optima has successfully focused on addressing the acute pain points of emergency services agencies for the past 16 years,” said Optima CEO Chris Mackay. “By joining forces with Intermedix, we will expand our reach in providing evidence-based answers to the complex and challenging questions these agencies face.”
Optima’s solutions are used globally to support more than 5.5 million emergency responses annually across a population of more than 50 million.
“Optima’s solutions provide organizations with the technology needed to achieve the ideal balance of system cost and responsive performance,” said Intermedix President & CEO Doug Shamon. “Optima’s capabilities align perfectly with the Intermedix mission, strengthening our overall offering both in the United States and across the globe. We are proud to welcome Optima to the Intermedix family.”
The acquisition of Optima continues Intermedix’s global expansion. Since acquiring ESi and its WebEOC platform in 2013, Intermedix has supported customer installations in 16 countries and five continents.
Intermedix has also recently opened its first international office in Kaunas, Lithuania. The Intermedix office in Kaunas provides product development and operational support for Intermedix clients around the world. Operations are performing exceptionally well and staffing has already increased significantly in 2014.
“For some time now, Intermedix has been evaluating the expansion of our workforce internationally,” said Shamon. “The acquisition of Optima in New Zealand and the establishment of an Intermedix office in Lithuania are exciting first steps in our global growth.”
