HOW MAGENTA STARTED

From the beginning, Magenta Technology was formed to apply leading edge technology to common business problems with three key aims always in mind:

Do more with your available resources

Make life easier for our customers (and our customers’ customers)

Deliver rapid return on investment

A brief timeline

  • 1999 Founded by a team of computer scientists using a revolutionary new programming approach – Multi AGENT Applications – hence the name Magenta.
  • 1999 – 2002 We develop our unique multi-agent technology, proving its ability to solve complex, previously intractable problems. Using market forces and micro-economics, rather than mathematical or rule-based algorithms, we build practical solutions to real world issues. It’s a powerful approach and we apply it to a wide number of different sectors and problems.
  • 2005 We start to focus primarily on the transport and logistics sector.
  • 2006 We start implementing world-leading dynamic scheduling solutions across a variety of leading logistics companies including Addison Lee, Tankers International, Avis Rent a Car and Gist.
  • 2010 Strategically we decide to bring the benefits of our technologies, previously available for blue chip players only, to the wider market and present Magenta software in product form.
  • 2012 we launch new product lines:
    • A highly customisable end-to-end solutions for private car hire business and patient transportation (Echo, PTS)
    • Easily implemented off-the-shelf products offered on the Software as a Service model offered to variety of transport logistics sectors including distribution and field services. (Maxoptra)
