Wireless Matrix Selected By Education Customer For GPS Services
HERNDON, Va. --(Business Wire)--
Wireless Matrix Corporation (TSX: WRX), a leading provider of GPS fleet
tracking services, today announced that it has been selected by a
prestigious university in the western United States to provide fleet
tracking for up to 1,100 vehicles.
Under the initial three-year agreement, the university will deploy
Wireless Matrix's award-winning FleetOutlook®
GPS tracking solution for vehicle location and status reporting.
It will be deployed on a broad range of vehicle types, including both
Clean Natural Gas (CNG) and electric vehicles. While most of the
vehicles to be tracked are utilized on and around campus, there are also
commuter transport vehicles that travel beyond the university's metro
The selection is the result of a highly competitive solicitation,
proposal and pilot process by the university's tranportation
department. The process involved initial bids from approximately 20
companies in the GPS fleet tracking industry. Wireless Matrix was
selected by the university following a successful 60-day pilot of
FleetOutlook on its vehicles earlier this year.
"This win is the result of a lengthy and highly detailed process that
put FleetOutlook toe-to-toe with solutions from some of the largest GPS
tracking companies in the industry," said Maria Izurieta, acting CEO of
Wireless Matrix. "We're excited by the university's selection of
FleetOutlook, and we look forward to working with them to identify and
realize greater efficiencies from their vehicle fleet."
The contract marks Wireless Matrix's premiere entry into the Education
Transportation vertical. The initial order under the contact has already
been received by the company.
