Brekford Corp., a public safety technology service provider of fully integrated traffic safety solutions, vehicle upfitting and mobile technology, announced its partnership with Trimble Navigation, an automatic vehicle location provider, to meet a growing need from federal agencies to reduce operating costs, improve driver safety and comply with federal directives that require greenhouse emissions to be measured, reported and reduced.

“Given today’s fiscal landscape, agency operating budgets are under intense scrutiny, and many are being cut by double-digit numbers,” says C.B. Brechin, chief executive officer of Brekford. “As the debate over utilization rates continues, there is an increasing amount of pressure being placed on federal agencies to cut costs. Through our partnership with Trimble, Brekford will help agencies better manage mileage, idle time and fuel usage in an effort to reduce emissions as well as fuel costs, which should result in billions of dollars saved annually.”

Trimble’s GeoManager Fleet Management solution is an on-demand fleet productivity and management solution that integrates GPS, vehicle diagnostics, driver safety, wireless communications and a hosted software application suite. GeoManager is designed to enable visibility into real-time field status and allows fleet managers to better manage overall vehicle and work force performance while lowering operating costs and improving productivity.

“Our partnership with Trimble further validates Brekford’s commitment to delivering end-to-end solutions to the U.S. military, as well as federal and state entities,” says Scott Rutherford, president of Brekford. “We’ve listened to what our customers have been saying and are pleased to now offer a solution that logically complements our existing products and services while simultaneously addressing such an unfilled need under present market conditions.”
