Qognify helps thousands of companies and organizations around the world manage physical security and business operations through video surveillance technology and incident-response management software, among other technologies. The company operates major development hubs in Germany and Israel, in addition to the U.S.
“Qognify is a great example of our buyout strategy in action — identifying best-in-class technologies and then driving growth through product leadership and R&D as well as strategic acquisitions,” said Battery General Partner Jesse Feldman in a statement. “We are proud this industry-leadership was recognized and valued by Hexagon, as it acquires Qognify.”
Battery formed Qognify in 2015 through a spinout of NICE System’s physical security business unit. In 2018, Qognify acquired On-Net Surveillance Systems Inc. with its brands OnSSI and SeeTec.
