The acquisition of ACIA Informatique goes along with this new product strategy and with our international development” asserts Jean Planet, Chairman of Kosmos.

This new installation allows us to offer services of proximity and expertise for clients in the Grand Est Region (11 communities, 840 schools, 3 Regional Education Authorities).

With the acquisition of ACIA Informatique, Kosmos pursues its international development. Already present in Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Brazil Kosmos will now be represented internationally in nearly 70 countries.

Supplementary professional expertise: synergies beneficial for clients

By uniting their skills and professional expertise, the Kosmos and ACIA Informatique teams will continue to offer innovative and efficient solutions for schools. With this new alliance, Kosmos extends its abilities around its 4 domains: consulting, development and integration, software publishing and resources management. From now on, Kosmos can for example, make a multiservice card available which will provide access to the school, to copying services, etc.

“I am proud of the project accomplished within ACIA Informatique. Kosmos shares our vision and represents the best guarantor for the continuity and development of this industrial project which we have been pursuing since 1994."  Thierry Delville, Chairman of ACIA Informatique.
With its double expertise in “education” and technology, Kosmos assists schools in their digital transformation project but also in the implementation of their organisation.
