We are Innovactory; founded in 2013 by a team of former TomTom employees who were responsible for the development and rollout of TomTom’s HD Traffic, IQ Routes and Map Share technology. At Innovactory we are using this knowledge and expertise to develop innovative applications, around a central theme: Smart solutions in the mobility area.
We have a full service package, which makes it possible to create and deliver exciting mobility Apps and their supporting systems to the users of our services.
It’s our goal to deliver these smart mobility solutions to individual travellers to support them during their daily commute, frequent trips and journeys to every destination. Our current flagship product TimesUpp is after a successfully introduction in the Dutch market being prepared for international rollout.

Based on this and making use of our own and our partners networks and experiences we feel quite comfortable to start rolling-out our technology and services internationally.
