AA DriveTech snaps up Intelligent Data Systems
12 August 2011
AA DriveTech has bought Harrogate-based Intelligent Data Systems(IDS) for an undisclosed sum.
IDS provides online management tools enabling fleet managers to have access to detailed, consolidated information about both vehicles and drivers, helping them to meet their duty of care obligations.
IDS specifically delivers verification services for driver licences, insurance and MoT, company-owned vehicle driver risk management data and grey fleet driver risk management data.
Jonathan Jerome, commercial director at IDS will join AA DriveTech's management team to oversee the integration of the company into the business. Mike Routledge and Ben Liddicott will retain their respective positions within IDS as sales and marketing director and IT and Systems director.
AA DriveTech boss Jim Kirkwood said: "By combining both companies' existing market positions as well as our complimentary technologies, we believe we can grow both businesses. It also strengthens our ability to deliver technology-based solutions to the fleet risk sector and improves our reach in the north of England."
