LONDON — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 16, 2015 — The most recent version of ABI Research’s Commercial Telematics Competitive Assessment unveils quite a few shifts among the top 20 international players that have more than 200,000 active subscribers. Major changes come in the midst of strong industry growth, increasing interest from investor communities, and intense merger and acquisition activity.
“Trimble maintained its number one position thanks to its geographical footprint, wide range of product features, technology versatility through an increasing number of subsidiaries, and growing market share driven by PeopleNet’s acquisition of Cadec in the private trucking market and organic growth in the field services market,” comments VP and GM Dominique Bonte.
Telogis kept its second rank with combined innovation excellence and healthy subscriber growth through a flexible platform approach which enables key partnerships with commercial vehicle OEMs and mobile players such as Apple.
Omnitracs moved up from last year’s seventh place, re-entering the top three through product improvements and solid subscriber growth fueled by acquisitions like XRS and a clear vision for sustainable growth.
In terms of technological innovations, vendors are vying for leadership in software-as-a-service (SaaS) and cloud platforms, OBD plug-and-play hardware, convergence (smartphone and tablet adoption), OEM implementations, and open platforms kick-starting fledgling application marketplaces.
