Able Tech acquires online mapping business of ProjectX


New Zealand: Able Technology has acquired the online mapping and addressing business of ProjectX Technology Ltd. The acquisition promises bright future for ProjectX developments such as the Address Finder service and mapping applications.

Able Technology director Marcus Baguley said, “ProjectX’s expertise in geospatial data and mapping services will enable Able Tech to quickly deliver location-based applications; from hand held apps to large corporate websites that want to geo-enable existing datasets. The acquisition strengthens our specialised online mapping and data visualisation capabilities.”

John Clegg, founder and CEO of ProjectX, said, “Able Tech’s experience and reputation guarantee that our customers will receive exceptional leadership, services and support.”

The new Able Technology will be headed by Carl Penwarden who has joined the company from his previous role as Marketing and Product Development Manager at CityLink.

Carl said, “We are excited about the capabilities we have brought together – the combination of ProjectXs broad geospatial and addressing experience along with Able Technologys strengths in agile development offers a compelling proposition for organisations seeking innovative web applications.”

Members of ProjectXs team joined Able Technology in early July and will continue to support their existing clients.
