Connected transportation company Geotab is to acquire BSM Technologies, a provider of telematics and asset management solutions in North America.
The Geotab platform will provide BSM customers in government, service and rail with access to solutions for enhanced visibility into vehicle performance, driver habits and accident detection.
Geotab says BSM’s customer relationships in the government sector have allowed municipalities and states/provinces to optimise and manage their winter road maintenance fleets.
Neil Cawse, Geotab CEO, says BSM has previously used the company’s platform to build new products.
“An example of this is winter ops - support for data and the management of snow ploughs and spreaders. This technology is key for our resellers to be able to win government business,” Cawse adds.
