Dude Solutions Inc. Purchases GIS and Mobile Mapping Provider Mobile311

Latest Dude Solutions' Acquisition Addresses Growing Spatial Asset Management Needs for State and Local Government Marketplace and Beyond

CARY and SANFORD, N.C. April 15, 2015 – Dude Solutions Inc., a software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider of operations management solutions, today announced the acquisition of Mobile311, a geographical information system (GIS) and mobile mapping solution provider. The Mobile311 acquisition allows Dude Solutions to address the growing requirements of state and local governments, particularly those with public works needs, as well as universities and other entities that manage spatial and distributed assets. Dude Solutions will now offer a comprehensive web-based and mobile operations solution that enables these organizations to more effectively manage both their facilities as well as assets at-large. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“Mobile311 has built a powerful, patent-pending GIS and mobile application that aids in spatial and linear asset management – along with a growing client base,” said Kent Hudson, CEO of Dude Solutions, Inc. “Previously, spatial asset management software has been reserved for the largest cities and counties and, with this acquisition, Dude Solutions is democratizing GIS technology for any size local government client as it has with cloud-based facility management solutions.”

Dude Solutions will offer Mobile311 GIS tools that extend the power of Dude Solutions’ offerings into clients’ spatial asset management programs. Mobile311 clients will have access to Dude Solutions’ market-leading innovations and superior product delivery and support. The platform allows mobile workers to access work orders and other critical geographic data in the field while giving supervisors additional reporting and analytical insights for increased efficiency.

“There is a growing movement to utilize the power of mobile to better manage the complexities of operational asset management. With this acquisition, together we can provide the very best mobile GIS and mapping product in the market combined with Dude Solutions world-class delivery and support,” said Chuck Wright, president of Mobile311. “Building on our collective knowledge base of the operational must-haves for success, the combined organization will be a powerhouse in the marketplace.”

Mobile311 is Dude Solutions’ second acquisition since it announced a growth investment of up to $100 million from Warburg Pincus, a leading global private equity firm focused on growth investing, in February 2014. The Mobile311 team has joined Dude Solutions and will now operate from Dude Solutions’ headquarters in Cary, N.C. Last month, Dude Solutions acquired Windmill Software.

Based in Sanford, NC, Mobile311 offers a unique, powerful, patent pending GIS (geographical information system) and mobile app that aids in spatial asset management for municipalities, particularly public works. Mobile311 is an ESRI business partner. For more information, please visit www.mobile311.com.
