Safefreight Technology, a leading developer and provider of GPS vehicle tracking and fleet management technology, today announced it has acquired FieldTracker, a division of FieldWorker Products Ltd.

This acquisition supports Safefreight's expansion strategy into Eastern Canada and immediately provides Safefreight with a roster of established enterprise clients in Ontario.

Safefreight is also licensing FieldWorker's proprietary mobile workforce management solution that provides real time and batched data captured by the workforce in the field. This solution will provide Safefreight customers with the capability to better manage 'out of sight' workforce resources and to have better access to the data that is the work product from mobile staff.

"FieldWorker remains committed to better management of field staff activities and asset utilization, the purpose of SafeFreight and FieldWorker's technologies," said FieldWorker President, Peter Neve. "We searched the North American market for like-minded companies -- selecting SafeFreight as 'best in class' for their telematics components for this solution set," said Neve. "The integrated solution set provided by SafeFreight Technology and FieldWorker Products Ltd. delivers unprecedented operational efficiencies for client companies," added Neve.

FieldWorker licenses the platform and transfers the 'know how', making those entities self-sufficient. FieldWorker's platform approach is independent and designed to accommodate all mobile work requirements.
