MOBI Unites with Tangoe
Posted on December 5, 2018 by Scott Kraege
After ten years of innovation, hustle, and hard work, I’m thrilled to announce that MOBI has been acquired by Tangoe. It’s a great match that always made sense on paper. Our culture, trajectory, team, goals, vision, and values are so much more are already uniquely aligned. As we move on to the next chapter in our evolution, we greatly appreciate the relentless support our community has provided—and support that we will without a doubt provide in return. The countless MOBI supporters provided the momentum and mentorship that helped us arrive at this amazing moment. Thank you.
Tangoe is the world’s largest Technology Expense Management (TEM) company, and MOBI is the software-driven Managed Mobility Services (MMS) leader. Together, we now create the world’s most effective enterprise mobility management solution.
This is an exciting day for us—it represents MOBI’s next chapter and will result in even greater solutions to help enterprises solve increasingly complex endpoint challenges. Through our combined vision, MOBI and Tangoe will be better equipped to help customers increase productivity, deploy automation to transform device management, reduce costs, and use MOBI’s world-class platform for all user experiences. MOBI’s Co-Founders and I are eager to see what’s on the horizon for our product and team as we expand to serve customers on an unmatched global scale.
Additionally, this is an exciting moment for the Indy tech scene—this partnership establishes the city as the combined companies’ global MMS business headquarters. For almost ten years, MOBI has been an integral part of Indy’s growing tech startup scene. By combining forces with Tangoe, MOBI now has the opportunity to show other companies why Indianapolis is a top tech city in the U.S. The product combination will be our go-forward engine, our incredible people who have led us as visionaries and executed flawlessly, will continue to be the fuel for our success. Our team delivered and led in every way imaginable. Our team is extraordinary. I am continually inspired by every MOBIan and can’t imagine what they will accomplish on a global scale.
Josh, Michael, Christian, Tony, and myself cannot thank the MOBI community enough—every single person played an integral role in growing MOBI into the company it is today, and we can’t wait to embark on this next part of the journey together. The five of us have been building and creating things together since we were kids building a tree fort in my backyard—we’re excited to continue this tradition with Tangoe’s help.
