DataScan Field Services Acquires Launch Technologies LLC and Field-Logic LLC

DataScan Field Services has acquired Launch Technologies LLC and Field-Logic LLC, two companies that operate together to provide state-of-the-art floorplan auditing technology and audit services to financial institutions. DataScan is one of the largest floorplan audit and vehicle inspection companies, and with these acquisitions is positioned to enhance its service offerings and expand its role as the market leader.
“This acquisition is truly strategic for our company,” said Brent Sergot, President, DataScan Holdings. “Building on our industry experience and history of outstanding customer service, we will transform DataScan Field Services using Launch’s technology platform to provide more effective solutions and even greater value to our collective client base.”
Dave Lodigensky and J.D. Grogan started Alpharetta-based Launch Technologies in 2006 with a focus on developing cutting-edge technology to support field service organizations and helping clients better manage dealer risk. In 2007 they created Field-Logic, with its nationwide network of field specialists, to offer audit services. Together, these companies support an impressive roster of clients, including NextGear Capital and American Honda Finance, among others.
“DataScan is a respected leader in the industry and we are thrilled to be part of their team. The opportunity to combine our creativity and expertise with their scale and resources will take our business to the next level,” said Lodigensky, who will serve as Vice President of DataScan Field Services.
“Joining forces with DataScan is exactly what was needed to unlock our true growth potential," added Grogan, who assumes the role of Assistant Vice President of Operations. "Blending these organizations positions this company and our newly expanded client base for an exciting future full of innovation."
