ALISO VIEJO, CA — Telogis, Inc. has acquired Navtrak, a software-as-a-service (Saas) provider of location-based fleet management solutions for small- and medium-size businesses. This move broaden’s Telogis’ reach into this marketplace, according to the company’s CEO Dan Cozzens. Automotive Fleet contacted Telogis to find out what this change will mean for that company and for Navtrak’s current customers.

“This acquisition simply expands our reach to this market,” he told Automotive Fleet. “We have a successful track record of working with small- and mid-sized businesses through extensive customer interaction, and the scalability of our platform makes it easily suitable to businesses of all sizes. We'll continue to be a high-touch organization to help customers of all sizes be successful with this technology.”

Although Telogis could not disclose the size of its customer base, or that of Navtrak, Telogis told Automotive Fleet that Navtrak represented one of the larger customer bases in the small- and mid-sized markets.

So what will this change mean for Navtrak’s current customers? According to Telogis, the change will shift those customers to the Telogis platform, effectively replacing Navtrak’s technology.

“Telogis is going to work closely with Navtrak customers to transition them fully to the Telogis platform of SaaS solutions,” Cozzens said.

Telogis said this acquisition is part of the company’s continued growth strategy. The company has appeared on the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing private companies for five years in a row (2007 – 2011), and was also named to the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 for four years in a row, Telogis stated. Telogis is also the SaaS solution provider for Ford’s “Crew Chief” telematics system.
