Brian Michie established EROAD in 2000 with the goal of developing a technology-based solution to modernize paper-based road tax systems. Led by CTO Bruce Wilson, R&D began on a solution that would modernise New Zealand’s road user charging system.
In 2007 former Navman chief executive and co-founder, Steven Newman, joined the company and EROAD began commercialising its vision to become a global GNSS tolling provider. The same year, EVP Peter Batcheler joined the company.
In 2009, EROAD implemented the world’s first network-wide GPS/cellular-based road user charging system, which modernised the existing paper-based RUC (road user charges) regime in New Zealand.
Between April 2010 and March 2012 EROAD grew more than 2,700% and in December 2012 was ranked tenth on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 Asia Pacific.
In April 2014 EROAD commercially launched in Oregon, becoming the first approved electronic Weight-Mile Tax (WMT) service provider in North America.
EROAD has also entered the Australian market with a commercial services offering, appealing to commercial transport fleets that require a highly available and secure platform. EROAD listed on the New Zealand Stock Exchange (NZX) in August 2014.
