Blue Tree Systems, a company based in Newcastle, Galway, has been bought by Orbcomm.
Blue Tree Systems is a global leader in enterprise fleet management software for the trucking and transportation industries, with offices in North America, Germany, France, the UK and here in Galway.
Located in the Galway Business Park, its products meet the requirements of shipping companies, who want to manage their resources from a single platform.
The solid Blue Tree truck in-cab platform is based on an open Android architecture that offers its customers a fully managed, flexible and tested, user-friendly solution for drivers.
In addition, Blue Tree offers advanced compliance solutions for individual countries in both North America and Europe.
Blue Tree Solutions meet Mandatory Electronic Logging Device (ELD) requirements, the digital tachograph that will make it compulsory for companies to replace paper-work schedules with “work schedules” electronic applications within the next few months.
For Blue Tree customers, this means efficiency, greater driver safety, and optimization of the workforce throughout the supply chain.
The company serves more than 300 customers in North America, the European Union (EU), United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand.
It has been sold along with its subsidiaries in the United States, Germany and France.
Blue Tree offers country-specific compliance solutions in both North America and Europe, meeting the requirements for the Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Mandate regulations, which will require companies to replace drivers’ paper log-books with electronic “Hours of Service” applications within the next several months.
