Telogis strengthens market position with Maptuit business acquisition


Telogis, Inc., the platform for location intelligence, has acquired the assets of Maptuit, provider of connected navigation for commercial fleets. In past three years, this is the fifth acquisition by Telogis in a row. Maptuit’s commercial navigation technologies further enhance the Telogis enterprise platform of SaaS solutions, which comprises fleet management, navigation, multi-vehicle route optimization and planning, work order management and mobile integration.

Newth Morris, president, Telogis Route and Telogis Mobile stated that “With these advances, Telogis further differentiates itself in the market by providing the most comprehensive suite of location intelligence solutions on a single platform.”

Additions to the Telogis platform due to acquisition include an advanced 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. These capabilities are not only crucial to the commercial navigation markets where Maptuit has been successful, but also to industries such as mining, and oil and gas, which operate in remote regions where map data coverage is limited.

Maptuit’s technologies also allow companies to specify “known-good” routes and yard-approaches. These capabilities help companies improve the safety of route operations and are increasingly important in international markets where bonded routes exist. Telogis will integrate Maptuit’s technologies directly into its enterprise platform, resulting in the expansion of the Telogis customer base by more than 100,000 subscribers.
