Strengthening global powerhouse Enghouse’s fleet management capabilities

Locus was acquired by Enghouse Systems from Finnish mid-market private equity house CapMan, for a purchase price of USD 14m.

Enghouse Systems, listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange, is a Canada-based, leading global provider of enterprise software solutions serving a variety of vertical markets.

The acquisition significantly strengthens and broadens Enghouse’s capabilities in the fleet and transport management space.

In addition, Locus is a clear market and technology leader in Norway with emerging positions in other markets which Enghouse Systems intends to leverage in the future.
