Arizona Expansion part of Global Growth and Innovation Plan
Tempe, AZ (Vocus/PRWEB) March 25, 2011
FleetMatics, a market leader of GPS tracking applications for commercial fleet vehicles, has a new office in Tempe to meet sharp demand from customers across the West Coast region.
FleetMatics is a rapidly growing, privately-funded software-as-a-service (SaaS) company focused on live GPS tracking for fleet vehicles.
“The clear benefits generated by SaaS-based GPS tracking applications have gained wide acceptance in recent years from businesses managing fleets of all sizes,” said John Goggin, EVP, FleetMatics Sales. “With a dedicated FleetMatics sales support team in Arizona, businesses on the West Coast will have greater access to improved fleet visibility and efficiency generated from our proven GPS vehicle tracking solutions.
Tempe is home to a number of sustainability and technology companies. About 20 percent of Tempe’s workforce is employed in the tech sector and about 20 percent of the companies in Tempe are technology-based.
“Tempe is known as a city that values sustainability and technology. FleetMatics is an example of a company that has embraced both concepts. They are a perfect fit for our community and we are proud that they have chosen to invest in our city for their southwestern office,” said Tempe Mayor Hugh Hallman.
Mr. Goggin added, “The city’s strong commitment to support economic development and technology firms were key factors in our decision to select Tempe. The business climate here is positive and pro-growth.”
GPS Vehicle Tracking Applications Drive Growth
The opening of the Tempe office is one of a recent string of growth-related moves by FleetMatics after a $68 million growth equity financing in December 2010. The company recently launched a major software upgrade with FleetMatics Fuel Card Reporting, launched an additional North American sales team for the Canada market and expanded its hosting infrastructure in a partnership with ViaWest.
“FleetMatics growth in Arizona and across the entire West Coast region is a positive economic sign of demand for solutions that improve operational efficiency and reduce costs,” said Jim Travers, FleetMatics CEO. “FleetMatics delivers a results-oriented GPS software solution, strong support with an attractive Cloud-based delivery model which is receiving high marks from customers.”
In addition to the new Tempe, AZ office, the company maintains sales offices in Charlotte, NC; Clearwater, FL; and Arlington Heights, IL.
