Elgin is a provider of roadworks and traffic management software in the UK. Highway authorities rely on Elgin’s software to satisfy their regulatory requirements to communicate roadworks information to the public and coordinate roadworks with utility providers and contractors. Its digital workflow tools significantly reduce the cost and time it takes to implement traffic restrictions transforming what was previously a highly resource-intensive process. The business is recognised for its customer-centric approach to new product development and high quality user interfaces through map-based solutions.
Founded in 2011, the company has three core product sets comprising: communication tools used to display roadworks information and planned disruptions; planning and coordination tools which allow traffic managers to close roads and avoid roadworks clashes; and real-time products which highway authorities use to better manage traffic flows and ease congestion. Elgin's proprietary and valuable data is automatically trusted by global mapping and satellite navigation providers such as Google, TomTom and Waze.
The investment in Elgin is made by Bridgepoint Growth, a UK-focused fund targeting fast-growing businesses.
