CHRISTCHURCH, NZ. February 11, 2011 — Christchurch-based technology firm, Telogis have made another major acquisition this week. Telogis recently announced the acquisition of New Jersey-based Intergis, a telematics company with over 2,000 clients.

This acquisition is the second in just eight months and sends a strong signal to the global telematics industry that the firm that had humble origins in NZ over 10 years ago is on track to becoming the biggest supplier of location-based services in the world.

Telogis develop and install GPS fleet tracking solutions for some of the largest fleets in North America, giving fleet managers valuable feedback on how company assets are being used and identifying profitable cost-savings as well as minimising carbon emissions.

“This new acquisition positions Telogis for substantial growth by allowing us to leverage our robust enterprise software platform into Intergis’ existing customer base of more than 2,000 fleets,” says Dave Cozzens, chief executive officer, Telogis. “Intergis customers will experience the enhanced benefits, broader scale, and more advanced features and functionality of the Telogis platform in conjunction with a broader suite of premium products, services and enhanced customer support.”

Their significant growth that continued unabated despite a major downturn in the U.S. economy is testament to their resilience and solid place in the market. This translates to a positive outlook for the company as well as local job seekers. Telogis haven’t forgotten their NZ heritage with an active and expanding research centre in Christchurch, an ever-expanding development team that is constantly looking for new talent.
