WOODBRIDGE: BSM Technologies Inc, a provider of remote monitoring, fleet management, fleet diagnostics and automated vehicle security systems, has been awarded a contract to provide its Sentinel FM asset tracking solution to a major US-based service fleet.
For the initial implementation, worth more than $1.1 million over three-years, BSM equipment will be installed on about 850 vehicles.
“This is one of the largest single orders we’ve ever received, and it represents an important milestone in our strategy to expand our presence in the US market,” said Aly Rahemtulla, president and CEO of BSM. “The initial pilot project covers 15 percent of the customer’s fleet. We believe they will consider additional installations once we demonstrate the benefits our solution can offer. BSM’s major value was our ability to adapt our technology to their business requirements, providing them a unique solution that enhances their ability to service their customers.”
Sentinel FM is an asset-tracking platform for real-time fleet management. According to BSM, Sentinel’s ability to manage a diverse group of mobile assets was a key priority for the customer, which plans to deploy the solution to monitor trucks and multiple types of mobile off-road equipment. Benefits include improved fleet utilization, reduced maintenance costs, improved fuel management and enhanced reporting capabilities.
