History[edit]

The beginning[edit]

Infopulse headquarters in Kiev, Ukraine

End of 1980s — the students of USSR universities had the opportunity to work on their own business projects and a group of the students from the Automatic programming systems department of Kyiv Institute of Civil Engineering started to perform business programming.

May, 1991 — Aleksey Sigov and Andrey Anissimov established Display Land, a private company that was involved in development of computer-based monitoring systems for fire stations in Kyiv, Moscow, and other cities of the former USSR.

February, 1992 — the management of Display Land signed its first contract with a French company. At that period the company provided outstaffing services.

September 2006 — the management of the company carried on negotiations with nine potential partners, two of which, Bull Corporation (France), and EDB (Scandinavia), were chosen for final consideration. EDB came out with the most competitive offer that implied common development of new business lines, in addition to typical capital investment.

September 2007 — 60.1% of Infopulse shares were announced to have been bought by EDB[8]. Infopulse was introduced into the Scandinavian IT market and involved in IT projects for large banks, insurance and transport companies in Northern Europe.[9] [10] [11]
