We've seen tremendous growth with our FollowU service in Mexico
Ottawa, Canada (PRWEB) December 15, 2009
Real-time asset tracking firm troo Corporation announced today that the company has signed a 2-year partnership agreement with Globalstar's Independent Gateway Operator (IGO) Globalstar de Mexico to supply it with web-hosted fleet tracking software service, trootrack™, to be rebranded as part of Globalstar de Mexico's FollowU™ service.
troo's service will allow all Globalstar de Mexico devices to be monitored and managed by users and operators alike, through a single web browser interface, anywhere in the world. The supported devices include the new multi-mode Hybrid Track Tech wireless device, or HTT, capable of providing GPS-based asset tracking location coordinates and alert monitoring information from virtually anywhere through the integration of Cellular and Globalstar's Satellite System. The HTT launched earlier this year at the Mobile Satellite Users Association (MSUA) and Satellite 2009 Conference and Tradeshow in Washington, DC.
New call centre functionality will allow Globalstar de Mexico to monitor their customers' fleets and offer unparalleled real-time support should an event occur, such as vehicle breakdown or theft.
"We are excited about this new partnership", says troo's President & CEO Phil Wyatt. "Globalstar is the world's largest provider of mobile satellite voice and data services to businesses, governments and individuals. Signing on with Globalstar de Mexico is confirmation that our service offering can operate with any satellite, cellular or hybrid device in the market and provide the types of information required to make informed decisions."
"We've seen tremendous growth with our FollowU service in Mexico", says Eduardo Pacheco, CEO of Globalstar de Mexico. "The trootrack™ platform will enhance that service and provide the means and tools required in the Mexican market for users and operators alike, to view and communicate with their fleet quickly and easily, achieving a better logistic process in their business".
The agreement also allows any Globalstar IGO partner to sign independently with troo and yet benefit from the accumulated volume of business of the entire Globalstar consortium.
