“Non-emergency medical transportation providers play a critical role in ensuring healthcare access,” said Michael Nark, president and chief executive officer of GEOCOMtms. “Demographic and social changes have increased the need for these services, while rising fuel, personnel, and other operating costs are over-stretching the resources of these organizations. We have always focused on supporting the specialized needs of fleet operators. This experience, combined with our existing customer relationships, makes us perfectly suited to deliver an end-to-end fleet management solution for this demanding industry.”
