GeoLogic Solutions, a provider of multimode communcations and tracking systems to the transportation industry, announced that Sitton Motor Lines has purchased the company’s GPRS-equipped MobileMax units. The carrier’s 500-vehicle fleet will be equipped with GeoLogic’s MobileMax mobile communications and fleet management systems.
“The speed of the new GPRS network is really unbelievable,” says Dick Sitton, president of Joplin, Mo.-based Sitton Motor Lines. “The rapid response time just brings MobileMax to a whole new level.”
Last month GeoLogic added Cingular Wireless’ GPRS digital wireless data network as an additional communications option for users of its MobileMax system. MobileMax users now have access to expanded terrestrial wireless coverage and increased data capabilities such as wireless downloads of mobile software.
“We are quite satisfied with the response we’ve seen from our new GPRS offering,” says John Lewis, CEO for Herndon, Va.-based GeoLogic Solutions. “Considering the fact we’ve only been utilizing this new network option for about a month, the response has been overwhelming. The network is performing exactly as we expected, and we are pleased that carriers like Sitton are realizing the benefits of using it.”
