Apisphere to acquire Navit Innovations

The acquisition will enable Apisphere to leverage Navit's extensive GPS technology and industry experience to enhance the scope and reach of the location-aware mobility solutions it is offering its customers.

The acquisition will add RF engineering, embedded application development, navigation software engineering and hardware development capabilities to Apisphere's team.

Navit's GPS product and hardware development expertise will enable Apisphere to expand its addressable market by providing an end-to-end solution that includes LBS development support for cellular handset manufacturers.

The acquisition will also leverage Apisphere's Geo-Enabled Mobility (GEM) platform, which delivers mobile content, including applications and messaging – triggered to launch when users enter specified locations.

Apisphere's GEM platform provides independent software vendors (ISVs), mobile network operators (MNOs), system integrators (SIs) and enterprises with the flexibility and freedom to quickly and easily integrate location-aware features into customized applications.

According to Navit Innovations' founder & president, Warren Hewerdine, joining forces with Apisphere enables the combination of technologies to develop more value-added location solutions, and expand the company's reach into the rapidly growing LBS market.
