Road Angel set for expansion following RoadPilot, Pogo, and licence acquisitions
Road Angel Group Ltd, the UK’s leader in the provision of safety camera and blackspot warning systems for motorists, today announced that it has acquired RoadPilot Ltd, and also acquired certain assets and licences including the Pogo brand, from Origin Technologies Ltd.
The acquisitions combine two of the leaders in the ‘safety camera locator’ market, and provide Road Angel with the ability to provide safety camera and blackspot information to drivers in over 35 countries, via multiple platforms.
The combination of international data and licences will provide customers with “greater access to road safety information”, according to Road Angel CEO, Mark Thickbroom.
“The acquisition of RoadPilot and licences obtained from Origin Technologies perfectly complement our existing portfolio, and will help us achieve our long term goal of becoming the provider of choice in relation to safety camera and blackspot information – both in the UK and abroad”, Mark said.
“Our focus is on giving customers choice. Not only can we now deliver the most accurate safety camera and blackspot warnings in over 35 countries, we plan to deliver these via multiple platforms”.
The company intends on offering international data on existing products in due course, as well as consolidating it’s UK databases. They also have plans to develop local offerings in foreign markets via smart phones, portable navigation devices, in-built systems, and dedicated dash-top devices.
More details about the acquisition and development plans will follow over the coming months.
