Join our panel of industry experts for this insightful 60-minute on-demand webinar as they discuss the critical differences between LMR networks and LTE networking, how these technologies can successfully co-exist, and explore the future of critical communications for First Responders.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Current and future industry trends for LTE and LMR technologies
  • Challenges and obstacles with the convergence of technologies
  • Real-life examples of successful hybrid communication strategies for First Responders

Aptean Acquires Advanced Public Safety

June 08, 2016  | 

Aptean, provider of mission critical enterprise software solutions, announced today the acquisition of Advanced Public Safety Inc. (APS), a business of Trimble, which provides software solutions designed to increase safety and productivity for law enforcement and public safety agencies across the United States.

"The acquisition of APS brings Aptean new opportunities to expand in the public sector space," said Kim Eaton, Aptean CEO. "The electronic citation software APS provides to the law enforcement community is a good strategic fit with our portfolio of vertically-focused mission critical enterprise software solutions. We look forward to supporting the growth of APS through Aptean's experience in bringing relevant and trusted technology solutions to our customers across the globe."

"We are excited to join the Aptean team and to benefit from their core operational efficiencies and deep knowledge in the enterprise software market," said Bill Martin, General Manager of APS. "As a part of Aptean, we can accelerate our strategy to strengthen our market share and introduce innovative solutions to drive high value for our customers. By leveraging Aptean's strengths, we can continue to provide superior service and support to our customers, enabling them to increase the productivity and safety of their law enforcement officers in the field."

APS provides automated mobile solutions to public safety agencies to address the administrative challenges of issuing traffic citations and crash/accident reports. APS's solutions also help law enforcement and court staff to quickly access, analyze, store, and share the data as well as reduce the reliance on paper-based systems. More than 1,000 police agencies rely on APS's technology to work more safely, quickly, and efficiently.

The company's flagship product, Virtual Partner 2.0, is delivered as a SaaS offering. It is an easy to use electronic citation solution which allows officers to print citations in the field and share the data with other public safety agencies. Additionally, the APS QuickVoice software system helps increase officer safety by providing an audible voice that reads data received on mobile computers in patrol vehicles, thus reducing the visual distraction of needing to read critical information on a screen during a traffic stop.

Financial terms of the sale were not disclosed.
