Aptean: Aptean Expands Expertise to Public Sector Market With the Acquisition of Advanced Public Safety

ALPHARETTA, Ga., June 08, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aptean, a leading provider
of mission critical enterprise software solutions, announced today the
acquisition of Advanced Public Safety Inc. (APS), a business of Trimble
(NASDAQ:TRMB), which provides software solutions that increase safety and
productivity for law enforcement and public safety agencies across the United
States.

"The acquisition of APS brings Aptean new opportunities to expand in the
public sector space," said Kim Eaton, Aptean CEO. "The electronic citation
software APS provides to the law enforcement community is a good strategic
fit with our portfolio of vertically-focused mission critical enterprise
software solutions. We look forward to supporting the growth of APS through
Aptean's experience in bringing relevant and trusted technology solutions to
our customers across the globe."

"We are excited to join the Aptean team and to benefit from their core
operational efficiencies and deep knowledge in the enterprise software
market," said Bill Martin, General Manager of APS. "As a part of Aptean, we
can accelerate our strategy to strengthen our market share and introduce
innovative solutions to drive high value for our customers. By leveraging
Aptean's strengths, we can continue to provide superior service and support
to our customers, enabling them to increase the productivity and safety of
their law enforcement officers in the field."

APS provides automated mobile solutions to public safety agencies to address
the administrative challenges of issuing traffic citations and crash/accident
reports. APS's solutions also help law enforcement and court staff to quickly
access, analyze, store, and share the data as well as reduce the reliance on
paper-based systems. More than 1,000 police agencies rely on APS's technology
to work safer, faster, and more efficiently.

Their flagship product, Virtual Partner 2.0
, is delivered as a SaaS offering. It is an easy to use electronic citation
solution which allows officers to print citations in the field and share the
data with other public safety agencies. Additionally, the APS QuickVoice
software system helps increase officer safety by providing an audible voice
that reads data received on mobile computers in patrol vehicles, thus
reducing the visual distraction of needing to read critical information on a
screen during a traffic stop.

Financial terms of the sale were not disclosed.
