Intelligent Telematics, the integrated camera and tracking specialist, has acquired Smart Telematics as part of its global expansion plan. As a result, the Waterford-based vehicle CCTV and safety system company will provide Intelligent Telematics with a local presence within the Republic of Ireland as well as a gateway into mainland Europe.
Smart Telematics currently consults and supplies vehicle journey recorders and accident cameras to insurance companies and brokers, vehicle tracking organisations and end users. Moving forward, it will take advantage of Intelligent Telematics' unrivalled range of solutions including the recently launched IT 1000 and IT 500, the most sophisticated and powerful vehicle cameras currently available that utilise video, telematics and 3/4G technologies.
Sam Footer, Head of International Business and Strategic Development at Intelligent Telematics commented: "Smart Telematics is a likeminded business that expands our presence in the UK and Ireland as well as supporting our future growth into continental Europe. We are committed to creating a global infrastructure by the end of the year through a network of owned and partner organisations. This already includes a dedicated office in Brisbane covering Australasia and plans to launch an operation in Chicago during February for the North American marketplace."
Intelligent Telematics was launched last year to help vehicle operators mitigate financial and operational risks within their fleet operations. The advanced end-to-end solutions combine tracking and integrated camera technology to capture footage of incidents along with supporting vehicle data, providing proof of what really happened and protect against avoidable insurance costs.
