Globalstar’s system to provide connectivity to enhance Vehicle Tracking Solutions’ reach and scope

COMMACK, N.Y., Dec. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Long Island-based fleet management company Vehicle Tracking Solutions (VTS)announced that it will now offer complete global coverage as part of a new strategic partnership with Globalstar, Inc.

Under the partnership, Globalstar will make available hardware and connectivity services for VTS to provide satellite GPS connectivity to regions currently not covered by cellular service as well as regions outside of the continental US.

“We are excited to partner with an industry leader like Globalstar and the capabilities and technology they bring to the table,” said John Cunningham, VTS President and CEO. “While we’ve always provided complete, comprehensive reporting regardless of where a vehicle or asset may travel via our store and forward technology, utilizing Globalstar’s extensive satellite network and ground infrastructure upgrades will provide increased reporting and monitoring instantly wherever a vehicle or asset may be. This newest functionality will be offered in our wide suite of services as ‘SP Global’ and will have options for both conventional and hazardous environments.”

Organizations with assets that travel outside conventional areas of cellular coverage such as oil, gas & mining work sites and marine industries are very likely to take advantage of VTS’ new SP Global feature. Additional industries such as agricultural, transportation and rail assets that require reporting and analytics for efficient operation will enjoy the ability to “see” assets worldwide with the technology that Globalstar provides.

“Globalstar is excited about the opportunity to work with a capable partner such as VTS,” said Dave Kagan, President and Chief Operating Officer of Globalstar. “The key attributes that attracted Globalstar to VTS was the overall professionalism and technological platform servicing the company’s customer base.  It says a lot about an organization when they’ve been able to sustain both high rates of growth and exceptional customer retention. VTS takes care of its customers which is a value we have in common.  We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial partnership.”
