Aegis Mobility has acquired ZoomSafer Inc. for an undisclosed amount. The combined companies will now be called DriveSafer.
Aegis will offer ZoomSafer’s FleetSafer Mobile and FleetSafer Vision products in addition to the company's Drive Assist software solution. As well, the two FleetSafer products will add OBD-Bluetooth, telematics integration and analytics capabilities.
“Employee use of mobile devices while driving is a huge and growing problem costing employers an estimated $50 billion per year,” said Paul Zimmerman, CEO of Aegis Mobility, adding that combined the companies will be able to vover a broad range of vehicle types and mobile devices.
“When solving the distracted driving problem for enterprise fleets it's critical to give them flexibility so they can choose the solution that best fits with their unique requirements,” said Matt Howard, ZoomSafer Co-Founder. “Whether integrating into existing telematics systems, utilizing in-vehicle OBD technologies or implementing software-only GPS-based solutions, the combination of Aegis and ZoomSafer gives customers maximum choice.”
The new DriveSafer will maintain its relationships with industry partners, including PHH Arval.
