Telogis is a privately held US-based company that develops location-based software to manage mobile resources. Telogis sells software as a service (SaaS) which incorporate location information into applications for fleet owners as well as geospatial software development toolkits. Telogis was founded in 2001 by Howard Jelinek, Newth Morris and Ralph Mason, as a trunked radio hardware and software provider. Former Novell Inc. Chairman and CEO Jack Messman is chairman of the board of directors. The company was started with investments from its founders, and by 2012 the privately held company had approximately $69 million in revenue. Wall Street Journal reporter Don Clark stated of the companys technology that, "Telogis exploited the evolution of software-as-a-service–placing data from vehicles in the cloud ... so that companies that own vehicle fleets can track their cars and trucks without the need to set up their own servers for the purpose." In July 2010 Telogis acquired the assets of Remote Dynamics, then in February, 2011 Telogis acquired the assets of Intergis, a provider of routing, mobile resource and fleet management software for approximately 2,000 small to mid-sized business fleets.
