Numerex, a provider of full service, highly secure machine-to-machine (M2M) network services and solutions, and Geoforce, a provider of remote asset monitoring and tracking solutions for the oil and gas, transportation and equipment markets, announce an expansion of their partnership to deliver innovative, flexible inventory asset tracking services throughout the world.
In addition to expanded use of the Numerex secure M2M hybrid cellular/satellite network, Geoforce will continue to leverage Numerex's application hosting capabilities. Geoforce offers a built-to-scale web-based application with the ability to track mobile assets using a combination of GPS, RFID and other wireless technologies, based on customer preference and requirements. The solution utilizes the Numerex network to provide both satellite and traditional cellular capability for ultimate flexibility and coverage for critical asset tracking requirements.
"Our key value proposition is choice,” said Jim MacLean, CEO of Geoforce. “By combining GPS, RFID and other tracking technologies into a single asset management platform, we offer customers flexibility in the design and deployment of their solution. Numerex gives us the flexibility of offering multiple network technologies coupled with the confidence of a partner that truly understands the M2M market. As technologies are constantly changing, it's critical to partner with someone that is staying ahead of the technology curve while continuing to provide uncompromised security and reliability.”
The Geoforce solution enables rental companies, service companies and operators with inventory assets to locate mobile oil field equipment, remotely monitor trucks and freight assets, manage inspection and maintenance tasks online and, through AssetShare, share this information with business partners without compromising security.
"Geoforce delivers value to customers through proven business solutions that ensure companies have assets in the right place at the right time for maximum efficiency,” said Numerex Executive VP of Sales and Marketing Mike Lang. “Given the current environment, where companies are more concerned than ever about maximizing the value of capital asset investment, the Geoforce solution just makes sense. And providing multiple layers of network connectivity through a single source for added coverage and flexibility is a great example of the value offered through the Numerex network.”
