GLASGOW, March 20, 2017 /CNW/ - The Altia-ABM group, a global leader in specialist software for use in the fight against crime, today announces a significant expansion of its operations in Canada.
The company has opened a new office in Toronto and created a special business development team to meet the growing demand for its tools.
Altia-ABM develops specialist software and services to empower organisations in their fight against crime.

Altia-ABM's clients also include federal governments, enforcement agencies, tax authorities, the intelligence communities, healthcare providers and commercial financial investigators. In Canada, federal law enforcement and other government agencies already use the company's products.
The initial team to drive the growth of the firm in Canada are - Beverly Golchuk, a highly experienced national sales and business development executive, who has been appointed as National Sales Manager and George Harrison, Business Development Director, who is a retired police officer widely recognised for his continuing involvement in the training of police officers across Canada in intelligence management.
Ian Watson, CEO of Altia-ABM, said: "I am delighted to announce a very significant milestone for us in Canada where there is a clear and growing demand for the most advanced tools to combat crime.
"Beverly and George are joining us at this crucial time in our development and bring the expertise and experience that we need to attract new customers in Canada and to provide professional support to our existing customers. The group has grown significantly in the past 12 months with our wide range of tools used by professional investigators across the world."
Beverly Golchuk says: "The UK and Canada have the same issues in terms of increasingly complex crime, terrorism and threats from international criminal networks. Canadian law enforcement agencies today need to achieve a higher standard of analytics in a shorter time-frame - this is exactly what Altia-ABM offers."
