Rickitt Mitchell worked alongside its German partner, Active M&A to deliver the deal.
Public-i was founded in 2003, has 40 employees, and offices in Hove and Halifax. Traditional streaming platforms have not been able to meet local government requirements for security, accountability and voting technology, which has generated a period of growth for Public-i as demand for their bespoke service increases.
Public-i’s proprietary technology clears the way for remote and hybrid government meetings during which participants can vote and share confidential information in a secure environment, boosting participation and guaranteeing security, transparency, and governance.
It is currently used by over 30% of local governments and councils in the UK, along with several partners in Ireland and Denmark, and plans to support more local agencies in the UK and Europe in coming years.
