Telogis has purchased the assets of Maptuit, a provider of connected navigation for commercial feets. The purchase allows Telogis to expand its platform of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offerings, including fleet management navigation, multi-vehicle route optimization and planning, work order management and mobile integration.
Terms were not disclosed.
“This acquisition adds a new dimension to our platform,” said Newth Morris, president, Telogis Route and Telogis Mobile. “With these advances, Telogis further differentiates itself in the market by providing the most comprehensive suite of location intelligence solutions on a single platform.”
The acquisition will provide an enhanced location-based service (LBS) engine that receives feedback from the field on road conditions and physical restrictions that may not be captured by commercial and open source map data, Telogis said.
Among Maptuit’s technologies is the ability to specify “known-good” routes and yard approaches, which help managers improve routing from both a safety and efficiency perspective.
Telogis will integrate Maptuit’s technologies directly into its enterprise platform, it said.
“The commercial navigation technologies that Maptuit has revolutionized will enhance all of the applications on our platform — route planning, navigation, execution analytics — and position our company to best handle the growing location intelligence needs of companies worldwide,” said Morris. “This acquisition complements the Telogis platform with a unique set of high-value capabilities that allow companies to dramatically transform their operations, improve safety and lower operating costs.”
