BrickHouse Security Acquires Securus GPS Tracking Business
Consolidation of Securus GPS and Zoombak strengthens BrickHouse Security as a leading GPS provider.
NEW YORK CITY – BrickHouse Security, a leading supplier of GPS tracking and security solutions to business, government and consumers, has acquired substantially all the assets of Securus Inc.’s GPS tracking business, including the eZoom and Zoombak customer base and related brands.
Terms of the deal – which follows last week’s sale of Securus’ PERS business to Freeus – were not released.
The acquisition includes all Securus GPS tracking accounts. Beginning March 16, Securus subscribers will be seamlessly transitioned to BrickHouse Security’s cloud-based GPS platform. BrickHouse will honor all Securus subscribers’ current pricing, billing schedule and payment terms, according to a press release.
Customers who recently purchased a Securus eZoom GPS tracker and have not yet activated it will be able to activate their device with BrickHouse Security directly.
BrickHouse Security plans to support a select number of Securus and Zoombak’s retail distribution channels, such as Amazon, Costco, Car Toys and Pep Boys. Select retailers will also have the opportunity to offer BrickHouse’s wide selection of safety and security products to their customers.
Securus business and government clients will gain access to BrickHouse Security’s more advanced enterprise tracking platform, which is optimized to manage, monitor and report on larger deployments of GPS trackers, according to the company. This is the same platform currently used by over 2,500 police departments and thousands of businesses.
“This agreement is an example of industry consolidation that we expect to continue as smaller players seek a partner at scale,” says BrickHouse Security CEO Todd Morris. “Securus and Zoombak built a robust customer base and a loyal following of GPS subscribers. With this single acquisition we are rolling up the efforts of the three most successful personal and asset tracking businesses under one brand on a single, unified platform.”
Optimized for professional fleet tracking, asset tracking and law enforcement applications, the BrickHouse Security enterprise GPS platform provides a portal to the Internet of Things (IoT) movement, giving organizations of all sizes the ability to increase productivity, achieve cost savings and ramp up their customer service offerings, according to the company.
“BrickHouse Security has a 10-year track record as one of the most reputable GPS providers in our industry,” adds Securus CEO Tom Collopy. “We know our customers are in good hands and will continue to receive the high level of service they’ve come to expect.”
