Accel Transmatic was originally established as Transmatic Systems (TSL) in the year 1986 by two entrepreneurs from Kerala, M R Narayanan and T Ravindran, with equity participation from Kerala State Industrial Development Corporation, and IDBI. The company was promoted to develop and manufacture professional electronic products and communication systems in the state of Kerala, India.

In 1991, TDICI , the venture capital arm of ICICI provided funding for expansion/diversification to manufacture High Speed Dot matrix printers in colaboration with OutPut Technology Corporation (OTC) of USA.

In 1994, the company had its IPO, the issue was oversubscribed and the company got listed in the Mumbai, Chennai, Cochin Stock Exchanges. Over the years the company developed a strong product portfolio and marketing infrastructure and established as a leading manufacturer and solution provider in the IT industry.

In 2002, the company wanted to diversify into software and technologies space by merging with other technology companies. It approached Accel, an established IT business group based in Chennai for a possible acquisition of the company. Accel acquired the shares held by one of the promoters of the company and the acquisition was completed by August 2003 and thus the company became an Accel group company. Accel's management decided to create a new diversified portfolio for Transmatic Systems by merging two of the group entities namely, Accel Software and Technologies and Accel IT Academy. It was also decided to acquire an embedded software development company based in Technopark, Thiruvananthapuram, namely Ushus Technologies (UTPL) into TSL through the merger process, since they were complimentary to the business of TSL. Accordingly a merged entity had been formed effective from 01-01-2004 by the name, Accel Transmatic (ATL). The legal completion of the merger was completed on 9th February, 2005.

The company currently operates through three business divisions namely, Systems and Services, Ushus Technologies and Accel Animation Studios. The product range of the division is a combination of custom built hardware and application software.
