We successfully concluded transactions with both by exploiting the opportunity to sign a source code licensing deal with Mentis International Corp while selling the business to the other, Ives Development, Inc.
The Catalyst Group was retained by the Enterprise NT Business Solutions group of Unisys Corporation to advise on the formation of strategic partnerships for a new security management business initiative. Under the first such relationship, Mosaix, Inc. is providing secure customer interaction systems incorporating Unisys' Single Point Security technology.
The Catalyst Group acted as advisor to Document Directions, Inc. on its strategic partnership with Merrill Corporation.
