Descartes Systems Group has announced the acquisition of RouteView Technologies, Inc., a developer of delivery operations management software.
The purchase price for the sale is approximately $3 million, plus up to an additional $500,000 if RouteView meets certain sales targets. RouteView’s map-based routing software combines with GPS tracking to offer automatic alerts for customers, including home delivery and distribution industries, the company said.
"RouteView and Descartes each use superior technology to help customers manage the last mile of delivery," said Arthur Mesher, CEO of Descartes. "We share a common approach to serving customers with an on-demand business model that combines route optimization technology and automatic vehicle location services. We are excited to welcome RouteView's customers and employees to Descartes' Global Logistics Network and look forward to collaboratively growing our business to intelligently manage resources in motion.'
