  • During our investment period, CliniSys fully integrated its European and UK business, and invested in building out its direct sales capabilities to increase its penetration across Europe. It also invested in partnerships to generate sales in new geographies such as the Middle East.
  • Today, CliniSys Group solutions have been deployed in 10 languages in thousands of laboratories across 23 countries and are used by hundreds of thousands of healthcare professionals.
