Rolta India buys consulting and SI firm, OneGIS

Mumbai, India: Rolta has acquired OneGIS, Inc. of Atlanta, Georgia, USA. It is a consulting, development and systems integration (SI) firm with a track record of implementing geospatial and IT solutions. In addition to gaining a consulting track-record, Rolta has acquired the company’s intellectual property, including the OneView Mobile solution, to enrich its portfolio of IP. This work-focused, asset-centric mobile GIS application allows field personnel to apply specific work-related actions to help automate their daily work assignments through its unique, user configurable, action framework. OneView Mobile is already operational in several large utilities and telecoms within the North American market.

OneView Mobile will become an integral part of Rolta’s GeospatialFusion which provides an enterprise-wide solution for spatial viewing, integration and business intelligence. For utilities and infrastructure management businesses, one of the biggest challenges is to synchronise information across disparate systems and provide the business intelligence required to enable timely decision making with their field workforce.

OneGIS has deep knowledge of ESRI applications and integration experience of industry solutions such as Telvent’s facility and landbase information management software ArcFM, Telcordia’s telecom physical asset management software Network Engineer and Azteca Systems’ work and maintenance management software Cityworks. Rolta will capitalise on OneGIS’ in-depth knowledge and the impressive track-record of high-end consulting for a large customer base in North America, to rapidly bring innovative GeospatialFusion solutions to the market.

Chris Cirillo, CEO of OneGIS, said, “We always felt that it was a pioneering effort that would propel Rolta to the forefront of geospatial solution providers and we can now play a significant part in this innovative approach.”

K. K. Singh, Chairman and CEO said, “The strategic acquisition of OneGIS will greatly enhance our ability to provide innovative solutions to the utility, telecommunications and government markets. The addition of OneView Mobile to our Geospatial Fusion Solution will address a critical area of future growth – mobile field force automation.”
