Eagle, Idaho (PRWEB) May 7, 2008
Sky Detective, Inc. and Preco Electronics today announced that the two Idaho-based companies are working together to deliver a new level of asset tracking capabilities to the heavy equipment industry.
Preco Electronics is widely known for its radar-based collision avoidance solutions, as well as its sensor-based Safety Alert Systems, which help drivers avoid accidents. The company also makes the "PreCise" Wireless fleet & equipment tracking system which provides fleet managers unprecedented visibility to their equipment and the job it is performing.
Sky Detective is a leading provider of global intelligence, security, and GPS/CDMA assisted asset tracking devices. Its revolutionary SD30 offering is one of the smallest, most accurate and most energy-efficient asset trackers in the world. Approved by the FCC, the SD30 provides CDMA-assisted positioning capabilities, which are necessary to accurately identify location in tunnels, parking garages, or other urban canyon environments. Its efficient power supply can deliver up to 100 days of continuous use, and the SD30 is one of the most cost-efficient solutions available on the market today.
By incorporating Sky Detective's SD30 technology into PreCise, Preco is able to provide customers with a more accurate, and more highly-sensitive tracking solution for equipment operating in difficult conditions. The SD30's Assisted-GPS capabilities now help PreCise track equipment in signal impaired, and even underground environments.
"There's a natural fit in the commercial space between our two Idaho-based companies, because Preco's goal - to promote safety and profitability in the heavy equipment space - follows our own mission," said Sky Detective's CEO Jerry Thompson. "We're seeing increased demand for asset tracking technology in the heavy equipment industry, and we believe our combined technologies provide the best solution to address the demand."
"Both Preco and Sky Detective use the latest in wireless technology to provide our customers with unparalleled control over mobile resources" said Jeff Warner Vice President at Preco. "The partnership allows us to leverage our local presence and strong positions in our respective markets."
Founded in 1947, Preco has been providing leading edge technology for commercial equipment for over 60 years. Since pioneering the invention of the electronic reversing alarm, Preco has a heritage of providing solutions to the heavy equipment industry that increase safety and solve business issues. Preco provides PreCise mobile resource management and PreView blind spot safety systems incorporating innovative technology with rugged design, targeted to meet the needs of the diverse heavy equipment marketplace, including Mining, Construction, Waste, Municipal and Service/Utility.
