Trackforce Valiant acquires TrackTik Software

Issue 4 2022 News, Integrated Solutions, Security Services & Risk Management

Trackforce Valiant, a provider of security workforce management solutions, announced the acquisition of TrackTik Software, a cloud-based security workforce management provider. The combination of these two companies has created a new dominant market leader in providing visibility and control for the physical security workforce.

“We are very excited to welcome TrackTik into the Trackforce Valiant family,” said Trevor Campion, CEO of Trackforce Valiant. “Now more than ever, we believe in the importance of providing the right security solutions for companies of all sizes and business needs. The addition of TrackTik enables us to provide a wide range of technology options that are purpose-built for the unique needs of physical security operations.”

TrackTik was founded in 2013 with the mission of providing a complete set of tools through easy-to-use software and taking the fear out of technology in order to put it to work for security workforce management. From their origins in Montreal, Canada, TrackTik provides solutions in over 35 countries across six continents and has been steadily innovating the way companies leverage workforce technology for security operations. The platform provides a full suite of applications, combining the needs of back-office administration to front line security operations.

As a result of this new venture, physical security companies now can make use of the combined best-practices of two leading security workforce management providers, offering multiple options for how they can manage security operations. Additionally, the combined technology teams of Trackforce Valiant and TrackTik Software will enable the company to further innovate and enhance its solutions.

“The physical security market continues to grow, and with that so does the need for solutions that can grow with them,” said Simon Ferragne, CEO of TrackTik. “This acquisition positions us as the dominant leader for security workforce technology, and we are thrilled to work together to continue our mission to build innovative, leading-edge solutions for our customers.”

Both companies will continue to maintain operations in service of their customers and partners, with Campion overseeing the combined organization as CEO, and Ferragne entering the role of CTO. Ferragne and TrackTik’s investors have reinvested a portion of their proceeds into the newly combined entity to help foster continued growth in the company. Trackforce Valiant and TrackTik will collaborate on developing and innovating security solutions that include time and labour management, guard touring, incident management, dispatch and mobile patrol, as well as billing and payroll management.
