2012-11-30 : Human Inference and Neopost join forces

Neopost, the European leader and number two worldwide supplier of mailroom solutions, today announced that it has completed the acquisition of Human Inference.

With products and services marketed in 90 countries and subsidiaries in 29 countries, the Neopost Group has 5,900 employees all over the world, 1,300 sales representatives and 450 R&D engineers.

As the postal sector is undergoing major changes, Neopost is anticipating the needs of its customers by bringing new services and technological innovation to the market. Therefore, Neopost has been acquiring multiple companies; several components have been added to the mix, all relating to the topic of communications between people. Satori software, a US-based data quality vendor has been part of the mix for a while and GMC, a Swiss-based Customers Communications Management vendor has been acquired recently. For Neopost, Human Inference is a strategic acquisition helping them to create the portfolio that they need to bring future-proof solutions to the market and their current customers.

Neopost has chosen Human Inference for its strong expertise, its proven solutions and its splendid reputation. We will continue to operate independently, with an unchanged management team. Our core values will remain to be our guidelines. Our customers will be able to enjoy an even broader set of solutions, which we believe will be in perfect fit with our single customer view-strategy. In addition, Human Inference will be able to use the sales and distribution channels of Neopost, which will give us the opportunity to service new markets.

Human Inference CEO Winfried van Holland said: "We are very pleased to join Neopost. This offers us access to new markets and the support and relationships from a large organization. Our solutions fit perfectly in Neopost’s portfolio. This way Neopost customers, Human Inference customers, common customers and the DataCleaner community members will benefit from a broader range of solutions allowing them to reduce their risk, become more efficient and grow their profit by deploying a single customer view."
