Altia wins Queen’s Award

26 May 2021

Specialist investigation and covert operation software business Altia has been named a Queen's Award for Enterprise winner for International Trade.

The Glasgow based business, which also has offices in Nottingham, Melbourne and Calgary, provides software to public and private sector organisations across 17 different countries. Its software allows law enforcement agencies and investigation teams to solve crimes, reduce fraud and corruption, increase efficiency, save time and streamline processes using secure, trusted technology.

Last year over 25 per cent of its security software was sold outside of the UK - a key factor in the business being recognised by the awards, which have celebrated the best of British businesses since they were established in 1965.

The award comes as Altia aims to establish itself as the global leader in intelligence and investigation management software, following investment from NorthEdge in 2020. It has also appointed Andy Peet as CFO and Huw Bristow as CTO to help drive growth.

Rob Sinclair, CEO at Altia (pictured), said: "We're one of a small number of businesses offering investigative solutions of this calibre globally and this has opened the door to conversations with public sector authorities around the world".
