Hexagon Announces Acquisition of Listech

January 28, 2013

Hexagon AB acquired Listech, a software development company dedicated to increasing the efficiency, accuracy and productivity of professional surveyors and engineers.

Founded in 1988, Listech offers software solutions that expedite data processing and streamline workflows in land management, construction and engineering projects. The LISCAD portfolio offers functionality over other land surveying and civil engineering software. A comprehensive, fully integrated set of modules offers the flexibility of meeting a specific need or delivering a complete solution. Intuitive and easy to use, LISCAD interfaces with all major surveying, engineering and CAD systems and puts the power of the office in the field with real-time surveying and stakeout.

“When it comes to measuring, mapping and recording the physical environment, mistakes can be costly. Whether building a highway, erecting a tower or performing traditional land surveying services, time-tested practices must be combined with high-tech proficiency,” said Hexagon AB President and CEO Ola Rollén. “Listech’s robust software solutions offer our customers the ability to ensure timely, high quality, profitable outcomes in their surveying and engineering projects.”

Listech, based in Melbourne, Australia, was fully consolidated as of Feb. 1. The acquisition will not have any visible impact on Hexagon’s earnings in the short term.
