Numerex Corp., a leader in wireless M2M communications, today announced the launch of Airdesk Mobile(TM), a complete, single-source solution that supports the entire mobile asset and vehicle tracking market. The solution enables customers to track and locate vehicles and mobile assets across a range of applications -- from personal automotive and fleet security to credit management and asset recovery. Built on the new Airdesk Mobile Platform, and powered by Numerex Networks(TM), Airdesk Mobile is comprised of technology, network, professional and support services. Featuring flexible, cost-effective pricing plans, the solution is marketed under private label brands through multiple service providers and distributors in North America.
"Numerex has worked diligently with us to develop the product features and services required for the new car after-market," said Eric Hamann, President of Southwest Dealer Services. "We needed a product that delivered fleet management and security features for our new car dealer inventories, while at the same time providing the advanced features required for consumers. Numerex has done a tremendous job in delivering a solution that meets all of these needs--and at the right price points."
Advanced product features include enhanced satellite imagery for precise asset and vehicle location accuracy to the meter, as well as traditional two- dimensional road mapping to street coordinates. The solution also features an intuitive and powerful Web-based interface for distributors, dealers and consumers, as well as operator assisted theft-recovery support. Airdesk Mobile is powered by Numerex Networks(TM) utilizing GPRS and SMS transport. Numerex Networks' extensive digital network, covering North America and the Caribbean, provides the most cost-effective and reliable network solutions available.
"Airdesk Mobile has enhanced our ability to respond to market and customer requirements with a robust and high-value mobile tracking and management solution," said Dan Blanke, CEO of SkyWatchGPS. "Numerex built this product with distributors and dealers in mind. Not only does it provide the technical and service features we need, but what really sets it apart are the management and administration tools built into the solution. We can track and manage the devices and services through our supply chain and activate the devices on demand. That is a huge benefit for our customers, who are not interested in paying network fees if devices are not installed. Beyond the network and technology, Numerex's people and expert support staff have been there every step of the way during our launch of this new mobile offering."
Airdesk Mobile utilizes the new Airdesk ADM-3500 In-Vehicle Tracking Modules. The modules are available in multiple configurations that allow dealers and service providers to meet the needs of a variety of mobile wireless applications. From ruggedized, battery powered, locate and track-only modules, to full-featured modules easily integrated with proprietary auto alarm systems, Airdesk Mobile provides the highest level of flexibility for mobile application providers.
Numerex selected Trimble, a world leader in GPS technology, to assist in the design and development of the solution's custom modules. With next- generation Trimble technology and products, Airdesk Mobile sets new standards in advanced features and reliability. "We've worked very closely with the Numerex development team to deliver the best technology available for their solution," said Bill Dussell, Director of Integrated Products for Trimble's Advanced Devices Division. "The feature set and services they are delivering will be hard to match in the market."
"With Airdesk Mobile, Numerex is pleased to bring to the market not only the best in network technology and hardware, but also the kind of proven, lasting business, marketing, technical and customer support that drive long- term success," said Chuck Horne, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Numerex. "Beyond the tracking technology, hardware and network services, Airdesk Mobile offers a variety of value-added services, including dealer co- marketing, 24x7 dealer and end-user support, integration expertise, redundant network operations centers, and flexible billing options."
