Vector Solutions acquires Halligan
By Grant Cameron
Vector Solutions, a leader in industry-focused eLearning and performance support solutions, announced Feb. 6, 2019 that it has acquired Halligan, the innovative developers of a leading mobile application for public safety agencies that streamlines routine maintenance inspections of trucks, tools, medical supplies, drugs, and other items logged in inventory records.
The addition of Halligan comes on the heels of Vector’s recent acquisition of CrewSense, reaffirming the company’s commitment to providing a single operational hub for clients and expanding its eLearning and training platform into a complete performance optimization solution.
Halligan’s workforce management app is embedded in the everyday workflows of more than 450 fire and EMS customers, with features including mobile truck checks, communication tools for overdue checks and open work orders, asset barcode scanning, and cost and quantity tracking. Halligan’s fleet, inventory and asset solutions will be offered under Vector’s Public Sector business unit with whom Halligan has previously partnered to bring TargetSolutions Check It app released earlier in 2018.
“This exciting acquisition benefits Halligan clients by providing the opportunity to integrate with the public sector’s leading learning and performance platform, TargetSolutions, and thousands of online courses from the Vector Solutions library,” said Marc Scheipe, Vector chief operating officer. “And, with Halligan’s continued commitment to quality, innovation and world-class support, this acquisition serves to increase modules for optimized performance, expand access to advanced technology, and maintain a singular focus on increasing productivity, reducing risk and driving smart decisions.”
“We saw Vector Solutions’ vision for a single platform where public safety agencies can come to manage what is most important to their operations: their talented first responders and their life-saving equipment.” said Alex Montgomery, founder and CEO of Halligan. “Through the acquisition the Halligan team looks forward to providing more product solutions to our customers."
The company said clients of Vector Solutions and Halligan can expect to receive the same customer service to which they have been accustomed.
The company is working to determine integration plans and more information will be available in the future.
