Discrete GPS tracking for high value loads

Omnilink Systems : 02 April, 2008  (New Product)
Placement of GPS tracking device within high value transport loads enables loss prevention and real-time location visibility.
Cargo theft is a significant problem for commercial business and law enforcement, creating a high risk for companies that transport high-value goods from one destination to another. With this premise in mind, Omnilink Systems has introduced an enhanced solution, powered by the company's FocalPoint LBS software, for the tracking of valuable goods that enables companies to ensure their whereabouts at all times.

The Omnilink solution incorporates the DeWalt MobileLock GPS locator device, which can be discretely inserted into a shipment to track its movements regardless if it's inside a package, truck or other internal materials. Using the company's award-winning FocalPoint software, customers can track the movements of the shipment in real time and receive alerts if the shipment leaves a designated zone or corridor. Customers or Omnilink's 24/7 Monitoring Centre can manage the process of responding to any alerts.

"We're pleased to integrate DeWalt's MobileLock GPS locator device with FocalPoint to create this much-requested loss prevention solution," said Steve Hudson, vice president of strategy for Omnilink. "Using breakthrough LBS-based technology, innovative devices, and Omnilink's comprehensive Software as a Service model, Omnilink is able to provide loss prevention and recovery solutions that ultimately lower the risk associated with transportation of valuable assets."

"The combination of MobileLock and FocalPoint gives shipping companies and others a more effective means of tracking and monitoring valuable goods when they are in transit," said Bill Pugh, director of sales & marketing for DeWalt. "Further, this integrated solution will provide security for companies that have valuable goods in stationary locations, such as in warehouses, storage facilities or outdoor job sites."

The features in the newly introduced solution have been added in response to the needs of Omnilink's growing list of loss prevention customers. The new solution can:.

* Identify if the back door of a truck has been opened; can measure temperature to make sure it stays within thresholds.
* Track at different rates and levels depending on where devices are located.
* Tell where it is so that interested parties will know if it arrived or will arrive on schedule.
* Send an audible alert so that a package can be found when it arrives in a warehouse.

Omnilink's solutions also enable the provisioning, tracking and management of location-based services devices in a wide range of situations beyond loss prevention: from tracking bank bags in transit and covertly surveying the movement of vehicles to monitoring offenders out of jail on parole or probation.
