With clearly complementary products, I’m excited for what the future holds for both Jaicom and Atex’s customers and employees.”.
“We are delighted to welcome Jaicom into the Atex family,” said Federico Marturano, CEO of Atex. “In continuously supporting our customers with their digital journey, this event is a great step to improve our offering in subscription-based journalism.”.
