The development will allow the companies to “accelerate the development of innovative solutions for media professionals”.
ACP Group already offers innovative services to media professionals by offering them easy access to high quality text content and photos. Having launched ACP (Agence Centrale de Presse), billed as the first BtoB editorial marketplace in the world of newspapers, ACP Group is to join forces with Digigram for the next stages of its development.
The new entity aims to ensure the acquisition, storage, transportation and management of content for the media in order to improve their “productivity and responsiveness”. The merger, say the two parties, will yield a common client base, a range of complementary solutions and services, the pooling of tools and resources, and the contribution of technological expertise and R&D.
“This merger is a fantastic opportunity for Digigram because it combines the pursuit of development in the areas that, historically, are the heart of our business and associates us with the ACP project launched by ACP Group. It will enable us to add value as well as being highly motivating for our employees,” said Philippe Delacroix (pictured), Digigram’s president and CEO.
“Digigram brings us technologies that will allow us to accelerate our development by broadening the range of solutions and services destined for media professionals,” stated Christian Ciganer-Albeniz, president of the Compagnie Financière de Constance, majority shareholder of ACP Group.
All development, production and marketing activity concerning Digigram-branded products will remain in Grenoble out of Digigram’s office, while the ACP Group HQ is based in Paris.
