We have changed our name

Published 28. March 2023

Goodbye HMS, hello Qvest

For more than 25 years, we have been leading the European market for integrated systems for media automation to its limits and beyond. Now, the name of our company has changed: HMS GmbH has been renamed to Qvest Stream GmbH.

We are happy to continue the success story with Qvest and now further expand and intensify it. This partnership is a strong signal for our team, our common customers and our product portfolio. With Qvest, we will reach new customers and markets with makalu as well as other software solutions and expand the product range of the Qvest Group internationally.

Our services and products

The company name changes, much else remains: Our customers can still trust in our portfolio of targeted innovations, perfect-fit products combined with comprehensive one-stop service, cloud-based technologies and precise answers to all strategic business questions related to playout.

On the Internet you will find us and our portfolio at www.qvest.com as well as at www.makalu.live from now on. Our new mail addresses follow the logic of firstname.lastname@qvest.com.

Your contact persons as well as their phone numbers and our postal address remain unchainged. So do general terms and conditions, purchase and delivery conditions, etc.

Please use the new company name from now on in correspondence with us and adjust your systems accordingly. We thank you for the trust you have placed in us and look forward to continuing our good cooperation.
