Trimble has acquired privately-held Innovative Software Engineering (ISE), an engineering and systems integration firm that deliversend-to-end Internet of Things (IoT) and telematics solutions, enterprise mobility applications, and software solutions. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The acquisition expands Trimble’s fleet safety and compliance solutions and allows Trimble to offer electronic logs as a service, said the company in a statement. ISE’s business will be reported as part of Trimble’s Transportation Segment.

Trimble serves multiple industries that require compliance with the upcoming Electronic Logging Device (ELD) mandate, including customers in transportation and other industries. The mandate, which requires certain fleets to electronically log hours of service (HOS) data, will go into effect in December 2017. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), the ELD mandate is expected to impact 3.4 million drivers across the United States.1

ISE is headquartered in Coralville, Iowa. It provides electronic logs as a service to businesses that provide a logging solution, including those in oil and gas transportation, agriculture and construction as well as private and for-hire fleets.
