MiX Telematics acquires Compass FM to extend value-added fleet management offerings in South Africa
Based in Durban, South Africa, Compass FM comprises 70 staff members and has been a reseller of MiX Telematics's products and services since 1997. From the start, the company successfully introduced a range of premium fleet management services and solutions designed to help customers maximise the potential that telematics brings to businesses. These include the "King of the Road" driver scoring and incentive programme, the "Track and React" service for 24-hour monitoring, and safety and security compliance, as well as “Fuel Control”, which involves best practice consultancy for efficient fuel management.
"Our innovation and agility have made us very successful over the years,” says Kenneth Bailey, Operations Director of Compass FM. “Becoming part of MiX Telematics’s global business is a natural step – one which will provide us with greater resources and opportunities. We’re excited about the prospects that this acquisition offers our business and, of course, our people.”
“Compass FM brings a strategic competitive advantage to the Group through their extensive market knowledge and product expertise. Their core business strongly complements our existing offerings, and is directly aligned to our broader market strategy. We anticipate a meaningful contribution from Compass FM and look forward to integrating our collective industry knowledge and expertise to boost the value we bring to new and existing customers,” concludes Joselowitz.
