Accel-KKR, a leading tech-focused private equity firm with over $10 billion of assets under management, has acquired GPS Insight, a fleet management software provider. Founded in 2005, GPS Insight provides SaaS-based fleet management software and complementary solutions for Class 3-6 fleets in the United States and Canada.
Simultaneously, Accel-KKR announced that it is merging GPS Insight with InSight Mobile Data and Rhino Fleet Tracking, two existing Accel-KKR portfolio companies focused on fleet management, field services and GPS tracking. Gary Fitzgerald, CEO of GPS Insight, will continue in his leadership role as CEO of the combined businesses.
“Fleet owners continue to grapple with the need to optimize investments in their people and their fleet while providing a high level of customer service and ensuring driver safety and compliance,” said Fitzgerald. “The GPS Insight platform is bringing exciting changes to the industry such as video telematics, tighter integration to field service management and advanced analytics that transform what fleet management software is capable of doing. Partnering with an experienced software investor like Accel-KKR and combining forces with IMD and Rhino will give our company a broader platform to capitalize on these trends and give our customers new tools to manage their businesses more efficiently and save them money.”
