OCTO Acquires Nebula Systems

Nebula specializes in the development of advanced cloud technologies for the automotive and connected car industries.

OCTO Telematics, a global provider in transforming an IoT Big Data set into actionable intelligence, has acquired the entire share capital of Nebula Systems Ltd.

Nebula specializes in the development of advanced cloud technologies for the automotive and connected car industries. This means that its proprietary technologies are now available to make vehicle systems and data more accessible so that a vehicle’s health, status and operation can be monitored, analysed, diagnosed and maintained, faster and more effectively than ever before – anytime and anywhere, said the company.

“We are very proud of this latest acquisition which places OCTO amongst the leading providers of fleet telematics leasing and renting organizations” says Nicola Veratelli, OCTO Group CEO. “Amongst many trends that are changing the mobility sector, there are some that have a significant impact on fleet managers, such as the need to integrate data coming from the vehicle, each different from the other and defined for each manufacturer. OCTO solves the complexity of interpreting this data and offers impactful solutions which contribute to deliver additional value for fleet managers. We are committed to offer dozens of fleet telematics services to fleet managers and drivers: remote cloud-based diagnostics deriving from this Nebula acquisition is surely one of the most relevant.”

With this acquisition, the Nebula technology will be integrated in the standard OCTO offering. Furthermore, all OCTO telematics devices will integrate these capabilities, allowing OCTO solutions full access to all OEM ECUs and to use diagnostic trouble codes and Parameter IDs for the benefit of both drivers and fleet managers. The combination of these benefits will have a substantial impact on mobility management costs for fleet managers using the OCTO Fleet Telematics solution, said the company.
