Mobiquity, a Wellesley, Massachusetts-based mobile services company, recently announced an agreement with Boston-based FlightView to provide flight-tracking mobile apps to airlines, airports and hotels, notes Boston Business Journal.

The company had previously focused its efforts in the financial services industry, with a customer list that includes Fidelity, John Hancock, Putnam, State Street and Metlife, the news source reports in a separate article. However, CEO Bill Seibel hopes to extend the company's reach to travel and eventually healthcare - as it has already provided services to CVS Caremark.

What Mobiquity does is offer services for "every aspect of rolling out mobile for companies," explains the media outlet. This includes crafting a mobile strategy, deploying mobile technology, providing data and analytic services and offering security features.

It began a rapid hiring spree after receiving a $5 million funding round from two investors - one venture capital firm in Boston and another in Waltham. Its headcount now exceeds 100.

Mobiquity plans to assist FlightView - which uses a radar feed from the Federal Aviation Administration to track flights - by providing data and support to airports and airlines.

KLR offers services for industries that many other CPA firms in Boston may not be familiar with. Its technology consulting branch provides assistance for software developers, technology support services, hardware manufacturers and more.
