Aliant Mobility and Golumbo introduce GPS-enabled dispatching



    Bathurst Police Department implements new Fleet Management and Dispatch
    Solution in their community

    HALIFAX, March 13 /CNW/ - Organizations such as the Bathurst Police
Department now have the advantage of GPS-enabled dispatching for their fleet
management and dispatch service, as the result of collaboration with Golumbo,
a Halifax based ICT and Mobile Professional Services organization, and Aliant,
Atlantic Canada's leading information and communications technology provider.
    Aliant Mobility introduced Golumbo's Fleet Management Solution to the
City of Bathurst while working closely with them to find a suitable
communications solution for their department. "We had some very unique
requirements on a small budget to be able to implement this solution," said
Edward Huzulak, Chief of Police for the Bathurst Police Department. "We wanted
the data to remain on our premise, not hosted somewhere on the Internet, and
it had to provide customizable reports and real-time tracking capabilities for
our dispatchers."
    "We are very pleased to be working with the City of Bathurst," said
Trigve Vickers, CoFounder of Golumbo Integrated Solutions. "Working alongside
Aliant Mobility proves we are capable of delivering solutions to their
customers."
    "Aliant Mobility's wireless data coverage is the most extensive coverage
in Atlantic Canada," said Paul Pothier, Director, Wireless Business Marketing,
Aliant Mobility. "Golumbo's Fleet Solutions support our latest network
technology and provides a level of service our customers have come to expect.
We are pleased to have been chosen by the City of Bathurst to assist them in
delivering this capability within their community."
