Telogis Named One of America’s Most Promising Companies by Forbes Magazine
Recognition comes at the end of a year of substantial growth, acquisition and new partnerships for location intelligence leaders.
ALISO VIEJO, Calif., December 13, 2011— Telogis, the platform for location intelligence, has been named one of America's Most Promising Companies by Forbes Magazine. Forbes' list of America's Most Promising Companies features 100 privately held up-and-comers with compelling business models, strong management teams, notable customers, strategic partners and precious investment capital.
“None of this would be possible without our dedicated team of world-class professionals,” says Dave Cozzens, CEO, Telogis. “Their commitment to our customers' success drives innovation that keeps pushing us forward to create new location intelligence solutions and technologies.”
“Sizing up younger, privately held companies is hard: their fortunes can change very quickly and there's a dearth of public data,” says Forbes Executive Editor Brett Nelson. “We took a more comprehensive approach to evaluate their health and potential.”
Telogis, an enterprise Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) company with a platform scalable to mobile businesses of all types and sizes, has built its foundation on advanced technologies and strong customer service. Its customers rank among the largest fleets in the country, and Telogis has forged partnerships with companies such as Ford (Ford Crew Chief™ powered by Telogis) to bring even more advanced location intelligence to market. The company has nearly doubled in size each of the last five years and is well positioned for future growth, both organically and through acquisition.
“The strength of our SaaS platform is one of the greatest benefits to our customers,” says Cozzens. “Telogis is the only company that provides strategic and dynamic routing, real-time work order management, telematics and mobile integration on a single platform. Our offering makes location intelligence more accessible to our customers, is scalable to fleets of all sizes and types, offers ease of implementation, and ensures that our customers see its benefits from day one.”
To sharpen its search for America's Most Promising Companies, Forbes teamed up with CB Insights, a Manhattan-based data firm that tracks investment in high-growth private companies. With $650,000 in grants from the National Science Foundation, CB has developed complex software called Mosaic that mines myriad online sources (from press releases and social networks to job boards and court filings) to come up with one, algorithmically derived score that measures a private company's health. Forbes married Mosaic's data-crunching with old-fashioned reporting to assemble a list of rising stars with bright growth prospects. To view the complete the list, please visit www.forbes.com/ampc.
