Our vision: The premium partner for banks and chain retailers

A young group with 30 years of experience
AVEM was founded in 2016 after the purchase of ATEM Solutions by the AVEO group. Formed by the merger of the AVEM and ATEM brands, the name AVEM represents the component of partnership and proximity (“with”) that the brand has with its customers, its partners and its employees.
AVEO was found in April 2013, the result of the desire to bring together all the expertise possessed by the payment method and banking proximity technology companies (CMM, CIRRA, MONECAM, MONETICA and SOMAINTEL) including its members and shareholders.
AVEM is made up of nearly 1,500 employees who work in different positions:
- 900 employees located in our 10 manufacturing sites In France
- 500 field technicians located in 91 sites found locally throughout France
- 100 technicians on our logistics platforms (payment terminals, payment machines, banking IT, etc.)
Solid shareholding, strengthened in 2018
The AVEM group is distinguished by the presence of leading banking institutions (Groupe Crédit Agricole, BNP Paribas, La Banque Postale, Société Générale) in its shareholding. Strengthened in 2018, these shares are a strong sign of the banks’ confidence in the quality of our services. These close relationships allow AVEM to anticipate the market entry of new banking services and regulatory changes. Aside from our shareholding, the constant connection to the market guarantees our competiveness.
