Software maker Telogis Inc. plans to hire an additional 60-70 workers for its Austin office after completing a $93 million financing


Officials at the California-based company said it's received $93 million in funding to put Telogis in a position for an initial public offering. As a result, more workers will be needed to staff its offices


“As we grow as a company, we certainly need more support,” Chief Financial Officer Kyle Messman said Tuesday


In late 2012, Telogis opened a 14,000-square-foot office at 3110 Esperanza Crossing that employed 40 workers in a variety of functions, including quality assurance, development, customer support and training. It now employs 68 local workers, officials said


Telogis plans to enlist additional Austin workers for sales, marketing, customer support and technical support, Messman said


The company, founded in 2001, develops software for fleets of trucks designed to enable tasks such as routing, work order management and navigation. The company opened its first office in Austin in 2010. It now employs 400 workers and operates a development office in New Zealand
