The Matrix Organization Inc., a business-consulting firm in King of Prussia, expects "a fairly dramatic increase" in employment because of a French firm's investment, Matrix's chief operating officer said yesterday.
CGI Systems Inc. of Pearl River, N.Y., the U.S. division of CGI, a software and consulting firm based in Paris, acquired controlling interest in Matrix on Aug. 29. Terms were not disclosed.
CGI's most successful product is a software system called Pacbase, which simplifies the process of programming mainframe computers, said CGI Systems spokesman Walter Stradling. In its new relationship with CGI Systems, Matrix will provide consulting services to U.S. firms using the Pacbase product, the companies said.
