Toronto, Ontario — January 21, 2016 – Geotab, the go-to leader in telematics with more than 450,000 vehicles in 70 countries on its roster of users, today announced that as of December 31, 2015, the company has acquired one of its most innovative partners: Maps BI.

Maps BI executives Mike Branch, CEO, Bob Bradley, CTO, and Bernard Cheng, Lead Developer, officially joined Geotab’s dynamic staff on Jan. 11, 2016.

“My colleagues and I are very excited to be a part of Geotab, with whom we’ve developed a strong and fruitful relationship,” said Branch. “This acquisition marks a new era of business intelligence, especially as Big Data plays a larger and larger role in both the telematics space and beyond. We look forward to providing our expertise in better serving both Geotab’s established and future resellers and customers.”

Geotab’s freshly gained expertise in data visualization is a valuable addition to the company’s already detailed and comprehensive telematics solution. With the opportunity to offer such innovations as interactive dashboards and geospatial data visualization, these visual capabilities paired with the MyGeotab software platform will provide customers with an easy spatial understanding of their aggregated data, allowing them to more simply assess resulting analytics and better achieve their respective fleet management goals.
