Wellington, New Zealand, 12 July 2010
Able Technology has acquired the on-line mapping and addressing business of ProjectX Technology Ltd.
The acquisition promises an exciting future for ProjectX developments such as the Address Finder service and mapping applications.
Able Technology director Marcus Baguley says ProjectX’s expertise in geospatial data and mapping services will enable Able Tech to quickly deliver location-based applications; from hand held apps to large corporate websites that want to geo-enable existing datasets.
“The acquisition strengthens our specialised online mapping and data visualisation capabilities,” says Marcus.
The move is a natural progression for Able Tech, an influential member of Wellington’s growing Ruby on Rails software development community.
John Clegg, founder and CEO of ProjectX, says he is very pleased to be handing over to Able Technology “because their experience and reputation guarantee our customers will receive exceptional leadership, services and support.”
The ‘new’ Able Technology will be headed by Carl Penwarden who has joined the company from his previous role as Marketing and Product Development Manager at CityLink.
Carl says, “We are very excited about the capabilities we have brought together – the combination of ProjectX’s broad geospatial and addressing experience along with Able Technology’s strengths in agile development offers a compelling proposition for organisations seeking innovative web applications.”
Members of ProjectX’s team joined Able Technology in early July and will continue to support their existing clients. All staff are located together at Able Technology’s Wellington-based office.
