Masternaut, provider of telematics-based solutions for the management of mobile resources, has the acquisition of E.Novation BTC Munich, 10.07.2013. Masternaut, provider of telematics-based solutions for the management of mobile resources, has completed the acquisition of E.Novation BTC, a provider of data services for vehicles. This combines the telematics technology by Masternaut with solutions for the wireless transmission of tachograph data. E.Novation systems allow the tachograph remote download and easy archiving and analysis of mass data, while at the same time the European tolls and vehicle costs slightly in view of the subject. Due to the take-over, Masternaut can offer its customers comprehensive solutions based on a single platform.
