Activa Capital acquires Medisys

Activa Capital has acquired a majority position in Medisys, together with Turenne Santé, the entrepreneur and new CEO Guillaume Bouillot and the management team. Bernard Chevalier, founder, is supporting the operation and remains a shareholder.

Medisys is a software publisher in the home-care field and for institutions specialised in dependent persons.
After nearly 30 years at the head of the company based in Aix-en-Provence and created in 1991, its founder Bernard Chevalier hands over the management to Guillaume Bouillot, a software entrepreneur.
The new management team will build on values that have made the company successful while providing the means to accelerate the digitalisation of personal services. The challenge is to support the transformation of organisations that bring together care institutions, home support, medical/nursing services and aids to daily life. Medisys’ development is based on its recognised expertise in the care of dependent persons and on its technological innovations making it possible to streamline the operators’ organisation and secure the patient follow-up. The company also intends to intensify the deployment of traceability systems for hygiene and cleaning services in sensitive environments, particularly in the medical sector, with its Mobiserv solution.
Thanks to 17 years of experience between the creation and sale of Eudonet (a publisher of CRM solutions), Guillaume Bouillot brings a new energy to the company with a desire to accelerate by fostering links with customers and the ecosystem.
Activa Capital and Turenne Santé will enable Medisys to strengthen its positions through strategic acquisitions to complete its offer.
With this transaction, Activa Capital is making the 9th investment of its latest fund, Activa Capital Fund III.
Guillaume Bouillot, President of Medisys Holding, says: “I was very impressed by Activa Capital’s unique ability to support entrepreneurs and bring its skills and energy to bear on their ambitions. The association with the sector specialist Turenne Santé is a key asset for this transition from one entrepreneur to another in a consolidating sector”.
Bernard Chevalier, Founder of Medisys, adds: “This is a new momentum for Medisys, which has the solid fundamentals to pursue and expand its rapid development and satisfy our most demanding clients in the medico-social sector.”
Christophe Parier and Alexandre Masson, Partners of Activa Capital, completed: “We were impressed by Medisys’ history and positioning. The arrival of Guillaume Bouillot will enable the company to carry out its ambitious development projects. This acquisition is in line with Activa Capital’s strategy of investing in companies that are at a turning point in their growth to help them accelerate their development”.
Mounia Chaoui, Associate Director, Turenne Santé, says: “We are delighted to support Guillaume Bouillot and the Medisys teams in the takeover of the group, in partnership with Activa Capital. Medisys has developed a remarkable offer that facilitates the development of home services, at the heart of new healthcare policies that we are addressing with Capital Santé 2.”
