In recent years, Optidev has increased its focus on mobility, providing great value-add and customized solutions based on its unique TrueMobile platform.
With a proven track record in the transport, logistics, and passenger traffic sectors, Optidev was looking to expand its investment in the Norwegian market. The acquisition of Blinken eFront is an important step to realize this goal.

Blinken eFront has a broad market focus with customers in sectors such as offshore and energy, logistics, defense, ambulance services, and other first responders with several large accounts where synergies with Optidev will be significant.
– Blinken eFront’s market share and focus on ambulance services in the Nordic market was particularly interesting, says Fredrik Logenius, CEO of Optidev.
