As my old friend Colonel John ‘Hannibal’ Smith was famous for saying, “I love it when a plan comes together.” This morning I spent a lot of time exploring the site of a company that basically does it all for customized GPS tracking that will exactly match up with your business needs. The company is GPS Gate and I was so surprised to see a Google ad for them when this page opened. great minds think alike, I guess 😉
For years I have suffered both as a client and a solution provider from the exclusive proprietary-ness of almost all GPS equipment and service providers. Here we have a free, world-wide totally ‘open sourced’ utility … the GPS itself, and open source specifications, such and the NMEA (National Marine Electronics Association) for typing off-the-shelf or custom-built components using the GPS together, and yet for years manufacturers have conspired to try to make access to the basic ‘guts’ of the system difficult or even impossible.
GPS gate is a company dedicated to selling software and hardware that not only works within the GPS but also works with other manufacturer’s equipment and software so that the user, and the customer GPS service provider comes out the winner.
We need more companies like this in order to move GPS tracking from the backwaters of the technocrats into the forefront of business management and increased business profit through GPS Tracking
