Fleetmatics creating Australian presence
Fleetmatics is offering its ervices locally

Fleet services software firm Fleetmatics has followed up its purchase of local firm Connect2Field by creating a physical presence in Australia.

The US-listed British firm, which focuses on software-as-a-service (SaaS), claims 20,000 customers globally with the system installed in 417,000 vehicles.

 "Officially expanding into Australia was a natural move for Fleetmatics on the heels of our August 2013 acquisition of Connect2Field, a Sydney-based provider of field service software," Fleetmatics CEO and Chairman Jim Travers says.

"The launch comes at the same time as our expansion into the Netherlands, both of which deliver on our goal to continue to grow the business via global expansion and new partnerships."

Fleetmatics currently has locations in Ireland and the UK, as well as several offices throughout the US.
