G4S Canada introduces new fleet tracking system

TORONTO, May 8, 2013 /CNW/ - G4S Canada is pleased to announce that we have completed integration with BSM Technologies Inc., a leading provider of remote monitoring, fleet management, fleet diagnostics and automated vehicle security systems, using the Sentinel FM asset tracking solution. Under the terms of the agreement, BSM will provide Sentinel FM units for the entire G4S Cash Solutions fleet of vehicles.

This solution provides G4S with a fully redundant advanced vehicle and personnel security application, ensuring efficiency and safety for armored vehicles and their cargo, as well as their operators, whether in the vehicle, on the street, or in client premises. The BSM application and in-vehicle units operate on any of the major data networks, with built-in satellite redundancy integrated into G4S's existing vehicle computing system and remote alarming technology. This solution will allow G4S National Control Centre personnel to access real-time fleet location and vehicle status, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, from central and remote locations.

"This national project for our vehicles represents an investment in the protection of our employees and our customers' valuables," said Bill Henderson, COO of G4S Canada. "As market leaders, we are always looking for technologies that assist with our focus on providing proper equipment for our staff and enable us to continue to provide excellent service to our customers. This combined offering will make an excellent contribution to our extensive portfolio of industry-leading solutions."

"This contract with G4S speaks to the quality of our tracking solutions and our dedication to meeting our customers' demands," said Aly Rahemtulla, President and CEO of BSM Technologies. "It is a fitting endorsement from Canada's largest security services provider to choose BSM to manage their employees' and fleet's safety and security by using our real-time asset tracking solution."
