Trimble, Telogis, and TomTom Top ABI Research's Annual Commercial Telematics Competitive Assessment
LONDON --(Business Wire)--
Trimble, Telogis, and TomTom (News - Alert) are the top three players in the active
commercial vehicle telematics market. Trimble continues to hold the top
spot; its dominant market share is largely due to a mixture of organic
growth and acquisition. Through its strategic acquisitions, no other
company offers the same depth and breadth of products and services to as
many verticals in as many countries. Telogis (News - Alert) ranks in second place in
the vendor matrix, thanks to high "Implementation" and "Innovation"
scores, indicating that the company is strong across the range of
criteria in its assessment. TomTom now ranks third and climbs up from
last year's seventh place; this was mainly due to its strong growth in
subscriber numbers, which has now reached 395,000 at the end of 2Q 2014.
Omnitracs finished third last year; however, it lost a considerable
number of subscribers because it sold its European subsidiary.
Telogis, TomTom, and XRS all scored highly in Innovation, particularly
the categories of user interface, features, navigation, vehicle
monitoring/sensors and convergence and standardization.
Trimble (News - Alert), Telogis, and TomTom scored well for market share of
subscribers, vertical segmentation, and quality and reliability.
However, Trimble, which performed the best for rgional coverage and
organization health, now operates in 150 countries and is reporting
strong 1Q 2014 results.
"A lot has changed since last year's Competitive Assessment. We have
seen many mergers and acquisitions which have increased subscriber
numbers considerable. Trimble and FleetMatics are quite ahead of the
others in terms of subscribers, and TomTom's subscriptions have
increased drastically since last year's assessment. With so much
consolidation, companies cannot just rely on their good name and
fortune, they need to proactively invest in ways to increase their
subscriber base and explore new markets and verticals. Although some
markets are reaching maturity, there are still a number of opportunities
in less penetrated markets and in maturing markets the opportunity to
capitalize on more advanced features to bring customers greater ROI."
