Vehicle fleet managers and motorway-sign manufacturers are among those who use the connectivity platform developed by this Buckinghamshire company. It allows machines to communicate with each other through Sim cards similar to those found in mobile phones. Managing director Oliver Tucker and sales director Phil Cole founded the company in 1999 when a group of business angels provided some start-up funding. The company was then backed by Peter Jones of Dragons’ Den fame and was part of his Phones International Group between 2003 and 2009 before it became a separate entity. Sales have grown 78% a year from £1.5m in 2007 to £8.2m in 2010.
