ALTIA-ABM, the Glasgow based software group chaired by John Boyle, has announced expansion in Australia, South America and Canada as it unveiled an increase in annual revenues.

The company specialising in investigation and covert management software hailed the significant expansion of its global operations along with revenues for the year ending December 2019 which increased by 17 per cent to £5.9m “due to organic growth across the world”.

The company, which develops software used by law enforcement organisations, tax authorities and government agencies, now has customers in 16 countries.

Altia-ABM has also expanded its sales and support office in Melbourne, Australia, and its operations in Canada, Columbia and Peru.

Mr Boyle said: “Our solid financial growth has enabled us to develop our offering across the world. This has been particularly evident in Australia where we now have fully functional in-country operation and a subsidiary group company serving the needs of government and law enforcement agencies.”

He said it is “acutely aware of the technological and logistical challenges facing organisations during the Covid-19 pandemic” and involved in helping customers around the world.
