Foster welcomes IDOX acquisition

Mar 28, 2012

Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster has welcomed the acquisition of Londonderry based Opt 2 Vote, one of the UK's leading providers of electoral managed services, by IDOX plc, a leading independent supplier of software and services.

Opt 2 Vote Limited was founded in 2002 by CEO Ann-Marie Slavin and is a provider in e-voting systems and services, mainly serving public sector customers from its headquarters in Londonderry.

Commenting on the announcement Minister Foster said: “The acquisition of Opt 2 Vote by IDOX plc, a fast growing technology plc company based in the UK, is a further illustration of the innovation, skills, and entrepreneurial flair of our local companies and will hopefully enable the company to further accelerate its successful growth to date.

“Invest NI has worked closely with Opt 2 Vote over the years and will be eager to engage with the new owners to support it to further develop the strong capability, which it already possesses, and to maximise the opportunities for the North West. It is also a tremendous endorsement of the North West, following the purchase of another of our home grown successes, Singularity by Kofax plc in December last year.”
