The Swedish IT company Infracontrol joins Sitowise
Together, the two companies accelerate the development of intelligent traffic solutions for smart cities.
Sitowise has acquired the Swedish traffic and infrastructure IT company Infracontrol. Together, the two companies accelerate the development of intelligent traffic solutions for smart cities. Infracontrol provides digital services and SaaS solutions currently for about 120 Swedish municipalities as well as the national transport and infrastructure authorities.
Established in 1993, Infracontrol has a long history in providing reliable and user friendly real time IT solutions for traffic and infrastructure. The Infracontrol expertise includes e.g. remote control of draw bridges and locks, control and monitoring systems for traffic tunnels and systems for variable traffic message signs. One of the more important responsibilities is a national road traffic management system.
– The acquisition accelerates our strategic goal of being the Nordic leader in the digital solutions for built environment and mobility. Together with Infracontrol we have a more prominent position especially within the mobility and traffic sector. We have also looked for a stronger access to the field of operational and real-time digital services, and our unification is an important step forward in this regard, says Digital Solutions Business Area Director Teemu Virtanen at Sitowise.
– This change means great new possibilities to the both of us. The two companies complement each other forming a very strong ensemble with clear possibilities to grow business together in the Nordics. With the IT solutions from Infracontrol empowered with the strength from the Sitowise organization we will be able to help our customers even better. The need for a smarter society grows fast and together we will be even stronger in our contribution to a more sustainable future, says Johan Höglund, CEO at Infracontrol.
Infracontrol specializes in digital solutions and consultant services for traffic and infrastructure, e.g. controlling traffic, monitoring operations, safety and information. The SaaS service Infracontrol Online is used in over 160 organisations, helping smart cities with data management of the infrastructure and simplifying technical administration.
The acquisition is a platform for Sitowise's future growth in Sweden in the field of digital solutions. At the same time it complements the Sitowise service offering in Sweden. Currently the Sitowise services in Sweden include e.g. structural technique and HPAC for infrastructure.
Mobility and traffic is at the very core of creating sustainable and smart cities. We see Infracontrol as a very distinguished company in the industry. Together we have the passion, people, know-how and technological framework for helping smart cities and other actors in the mobility sector to make sustainable decisions, efficient daily operations and real-time situational awareness
Business Area Director Teemu Virtanen, Sitowise
