Fort Collins, CO—American Innovations, Ltd. (AI) out of Austin, Texas has acquired the assets of CartoPac International, Inc., a leading provider of mobile enterprise data solutions used in gas, electric, and water utilities, oil and gas pipelines, and in many other industries. CartoPac has hundreds of deployments worldwide with thousands of users collecting data on the CartoPac platform.

AI is an industry leader in remote monitoring, cathodic protection (CP), field asset and data management. For more than 30 years it has created fully integrated, award-winning, patented hardware and software products to capture and manage data. Based in Austin with offices in Denver, Las Vegas, Bridgeport, Longview, Watson, Pensacola and Cresson, AI now adds a Fort Collins office to its locations of operation.

“We are excited to add the CartoPac team and suite of enterprise mobile solutions to the AI suite of products and services,” said AI President and CEO Ed Kruft. “CartoPac brings a talented, engaged team of professionals intent on solving customer challenges. Together, AI and CartoPac will empower pipeline operators and utilities to collect the traceable, verifiable, and complete data needed to safely operate their systems.”

CartoPac was incorporated more than 20 years ago to address the need for mobile field data collection software in the oil and gas pipeline industries. Since then, they have expanded their offerings to serve the needs of other markets including gas distribution, electric utilities and municipalities.

“CartoPac is ready to continue its growth trajectory towards becoming the leading provider of enterprise-level asset management and analysis software for the energy sector worldwide,” says Scott Crouch, founder and CEO of CartoPac. “American Innovations has extensive industry expertise that will enable CartoPac to take product development to the next level with a focus on enhanced user experience, while still exceeding our customers’ expectations at providing configurable and scalable solutions that adapt to their unique needs. We are excited about this new partnership and look forward to the road ahead.”

AI plans to continue to grow its teams, capabilities and solutions to provide products and services that protect people, the environment and the world’s infrastructure. Integrating AI and CartoPac products and services creates a full suite of flexible, robust, reliable field data collection, management, and analysis solutions for customers in multiple industries.

Ideal applications for CartoPac software include leak surveys, foreign line crossings, structure mapping, as-builts, pipeline inspections and much more – even mountain lion tracking. Equally compelling is its ability to directly integrate with work management solutions, GIS and other enterprise systems including Oracle, SAP, Esri and Maximo. The system can be deployed on-premise, in the cloud or as a hybrid of both. For media inquiries, contact Leslie Lyon-House.
