Orbcomm Inc., a global provider of machine-to-machine (M2M) systems, announced that it has been approved as a Rogers Supported Reseller (RSR). The RSR program allows Orbcomm to work cooperatively with Rogers to market its suite of M2M asset tracking and monitoring systems using Rogers’ wireless communications network in the Canadian market.

Orbcomm says that working with Rogers, the largest GSM cellular operator in Canada, will allow it to address customers with advanced, award-winning devices and end-to-end M2M systems tailored to the transportation & distribution, heavy equipment and oil & gas industries. The alliance enables Orbcomm to expand its market presence in Canada, while helping Rogers facilitate the deployment of M2M technology and telematics systems for its customer base throughout Canada.

“We are proud to participate in Rogers Supported Reseller Program. This program broadens Orbcomm’s market distribution channels for our high-performance M2M products and services in the Canadian market,” said Marc Eisenberg, chief executive officer of Orbcomm. “With over 15 years of expertise in the M2M space and a broad portfolio of hardware and web reporting applications, we are well positioned to work with Rogers’ local sales and support teams to bring our M2M tracking and monitoring solutions to market.”

Orbcomm and Rogers will begin joint marketing in Canada in the first quarter of 2014.
