Established in 1999
The world’s first location-based service platform
Mobilaris was founded in Sweden in 1999, as a group of people from Telia recognized a market demand for positioning services, and the opportunity to develop a killer application in this field. With Telia as the first customer, Mobilaris partnered with Ericsson to develop the world’s first location-based service platform, which launched in 2000.
“What has always been true is that we’ve developed our products in close collaboration with our customers. We get on board and familiarize ourselves with every aspect of their day, every concern, and then we start solving their problems as if they were our own.”
Mikael Nyström, CEO / CEO Mining & Civil Engineering
Not just commercial services
Emergency Call Location
In 2003 Mobilaris expanded into non-commercial applications. A primary driver for this was the need for emergency dispatch and rescue services to be able to locate where an emergency call is coming from.
As the platform and its capabilities became more advanced, Mobilaris brought their unique brand of innovation to the field of Intelligence Support Solutions and Lawful Intercept. At this point one common denominator could be recognized across all Mobilaris’ products: saving lives.
Continued development in the Intelligence Support community would eventually lead to a comprehensive new public safety platform, a Community Information and Warning System for proactive and intelligent crowd-control which was announced to the market in 2012.
Mining Intelligence™ & Mobilaris Group
In 2013, Mobilaris announced Mobilaris Mining Intelligence™, a location-based decision support technology based on an entirely new core technology called Insight™. This time, Mobilaris addressed the mining industry’s dire need for increased efficiency and safety. Mining Intelligence™ would prove to be a true game-changer for heavy industry underground, and a significant success for Mobilaris as a company.
Between 2013 and 2017 the company grew 800% and in 2017 a new organizational structure was implemented as Atlas Copco acquired 34% of Mobilaris’ mining industry business. Mobilaris Group was established, with 3 subsidiaries: Mobilaris Americas, Mobilaris Mining & Civil Engineering and Mobilaris National Security.
In December 2017, Mobilaris announced their 4th subsidiary and new target industry, Mobilaris Industrial Solutions.
