From its origins to stock market listing
FROM COMPANY TO GROUP
In 2011, Maps focused on new assets in the healthcare market.
Development led the company to become a Group, and continued with the purchase and creation of a network of specialised companies: IG Consulting, Memelabs and Artexe – with the creation of new products for performance auditing and management control in public bodies (especially healthcare companies) – and Roialty, with its progressive profiling and digital loyalty tools.
From 2011 through 2019, the company’s growth continued incrementally. In eight years, Maps Group became a solid business with a turnover of approximately 17 million euro and over 180 employees spread over five locations in Italy, in Parma, Milan, Modena, Prato and Genoa.
Since 2014, Maps Group has used Rose, an intelligent energy management platform, to support the principal energy transition trends. This has led to new business models based on flexibility, such as energy communities.
Since 2016, new goals have been set: to promote research and development of solutions, always focusing on listening to users’ needs and the coherence of its offer, and using technology to improve user experience.
In 2018 Artexe becomes part of the Group: a reference point in the eHealth sector, its main objective is the digitalization of relations between patients and public and private health facilities. It develops innovative technological solutions of patient experience and is market leader in offering phygital solutions for waiting and reception in healthcare facilities.
LISTING ON THE STOCK EXCHANGE
In 2019, the company launched a new development project, which began with its listing on the Italian Stock Exchange in the AIM segment. Access to the financial market was an opportunity for Maps Group to accelerate its development plans further, but above all, to consolidate the culture of transparency, ethics and sustainability typical of a modern public company.
In 2020, Maps Group simplified its corporate structure by merging Roialty S.r.l. and Memelabs S.r.l. into Maps S.p.A. and IG Consulting S.r.l. into Artexe S.p.A. It also signed the definitive contract to acquire 100% of SCS Computers Srl, a company operating in the computerization of laboratories analysis (LIS). Maps Group continues the process of research and inclusion of cutting-edge solutions through the acquisition of 70%, which will subsequently become 100% of Micuro S.r.l., an innovative startup active in the insurtech sector, with the aim of innovating personal services in the insurance sector. The group reaches a turnover of 18 million euros and about 200 employees.
In 2021 Maps Group, through its subsidiary Artexe, signed an agreement for the acquisition of 100% of the share capital of IASI S.r.l., a company that offers solutions and consulting services for organizations, healthcare and hospitals, and for the management of their Human Resources.
THE GROUP CONTINUES TO GROW
In 2022, the Group continued to grow, first with the acquisition of 70% of I-Tel S.r.l., an Innovative SME and Benefit Company which develops technology platforms to simplify life and work with multi-channel interaction; then with the acquisition of 50% of Energenius, an innovative startup which operates in the energy efficiency market.
In 2023 the acquisition of 100% of Energenius was completed. This company has developed GEM (Genius Energy Manager), a proprietary platform for advanced energy consumption analysis and optimisation (including forecasting models), geared towards industrial and retail companies.
