Fleet Complete, a provider of fleet telematics and mobile workforce technology with an electronic logging device solution on the market, announced it has acquired BigRoad, the mobile-focused hours-of-service and small-fleet-centric dispatching software solution. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed. Fleet Complete noted the BigRoad mobile app, with over 480,000 downloads on either Android or iOS-powered smartphones, is the most downloaded HOS application available.

In advance of the ELD mandate, BigRoad launched DashLink, an engine-connected electronic logging device that provides owner-operators and commercial fleets with a scalable, affordable, and easy-to-use solution to meet the upcoming FMCSA requirement. Today, the company reported, more than 30,000 fleets in North America rely on BigRoad to achieve ELD compliance ahead of the mandated deadline.

“We are very excited about this acquisition,” said Jake McGuire, vice president of sales, marketing and customer success at BigRoad. “BigRoad is an established leader in the HOS and ELD compliance space and now, supported by the Fleet Complete IoT platform, I am confident we will continue to exceed customer expectations by providing the best ELD and connected vehicle solution on the market.”

Supported by Fleet Complete’s expansive IoT infrastructure, the company noted, BigRoad will continue to operate and sell directly to owner-operators and fleets, maintaining the BigRoad brand. Whereas the integrated Fleet Complete BigRoad platform will be offered through the North American partner channels, AT&T and TELUS.
