BudgetGPS is launching a new associations program geared toward providing discounts on BudgetGPS service. This new program is available to industry associations in trucking, courier, pest control, HVAC, plumbing, electricians, appliance repair, cable television, utilities, landscaping, construction and all types of fleet service contractors.
The association program offers truck-mounted GPS solutions from BudgetGPS to association and group members at a savings, and allows a potential revenue stream for the referring partner association. Both monthly and prepay options are available for association customization.
BudgetGPS, based in Chattanooga, Tenn., offers a truck-mounted solution utilizing the Sprint Nextel i355 handset technology from Motorola. The company says the secure truck-mounted apparatus is dedicated to GPS, eliminating the confusion of traditional handset-based software, and offers additional installation flexibility, low cost of ownership and near-zero maintenance.
“Based on our experience in operating buying groups and working with associations, we felt the addition of an association program was the first step in building value in a number of industries,” says Jeffrey Godwin, vice president of BudgetGPS parent company towXchange Inc. “We have discussed these options with various groups at recent trade shows and events and have found the response to be very positive.”
