Chris Bayne, CEO for Access, commented, "TeamSeer will be integrated into our fast growing Access aCloud platform as we continue to expand its functionality and increase the ability for customers to collaborate, communicate and manage their business at all levels. Adding such an established player in the HR space to our SaaS portfolio is truly a great asset.

It is the perfect addition to our software portfolio."
