WOODBRIDGE, ON, June 2, 2011 /CNW/ - BSM Technologies Inc. ("BSM" or the
"Company") (TSX-V: GPS), a leading provider of remote monitoring, fleet
management, fleet diagnostics and automated vehicle security systems,
today announced that it has been awarded a contract to provide its
Sentinel FM asset tracking solution to a major Canadian transportation
services provider. For the initial implementation, valued at more than
$0.9 million over a two-year period, BSM equipment will be installed on
approximately 800 vehicles.
The contract is an expansion of BSM's existing relationship with the
client, which has over 1,500 vehicle installs in another division.
Later this year, another 400 vehicles will be installed in this
division, bringing BSM's total mandate with the client to about 2,700
vehicles and a contract size of $1.2 million.
"This contract expansion demonstrates the effectiveness of the BSM
solution," said Aly Rahemtulla, President and CEO. "Since we began
working with one division of this client, vehicle installations have
expanded by over three times, delivering a measurable improvement in
fleet utilization. By adding this additional division they can begin to
extend these benefits across the organization."
This new implementation will be integrated with the client's dispatch
system to enable real-time fleet management and optimize load matching.
The expected benefits include improved fleet utilization and fuel
management, reduced maintenance costs and decreased operator down-time.
