CTS announces deployment of the MARCUS® GPS Fleet Management solution for Middle Tennessee Electric Membership Corporation
Nashville, TN March 13, 2009 — Nashville-based Corpo-Track Systems (CTS) has completed a fleet-wide integration of the MARCUS Real-Time GPS fleet management solution with Middle Tennessee Electric Membership Corporation (MTEMC).
Shawn Long, MTEMC’s Telecommunications Supervisor, stated, “After extensive research and bidding process for GPS and logistics technology, we chose the MARCUS® solution from CTS and Discrete Wireless, Inc. Critical factors including the user-friendly web application, technical support, and competitive pricing were all part of the decision-making process.”
Long continued, “It seemed as though this system was designed specifically for our needs. We not only decided to install GPS hardware on our vehicles, we also requested portable units, as well as a solar-powered solution to monitor our on-site trailers. CTS was able to customize all of these solutions for us. We have since been using the system for about five months now, and have been very pleased with it.”
CTS, a partner of Discrete Wireless, Inc. in Atlanta, Georgia – the designer and manufacturer of the MARCUSÒ GPS fleet solution, specialize in helping fleets improve their performance optimization and operations management through the use of GPS technology. Ben Sellers, Director of Sales for CTS, stated, “We have worked on the Middle Tennessee Electric project for over a year now, and we are happy to see the ways in which they are utilizing the system. The benefits that a service-based company like MTEMC gains from integrating a GPS fleet management solution are tremendous. We look forward to a long working relationship.”
Sellers emphasized many of the benefits their clients see, such as reduced fuel expenses, less overtime, increased productivity, and improved customer service are due not only to the real-time tracking aspect of the system, but also largely to the web application’s capabilities and versatility. “With the MARCUSÒ GPS fleet solution, you are getting much more than just tracking your vehicles. In addition, the system generates numerous user-defined reports and alerts allowing management to analyze their operations and administer assets. All of this information about your fleet can also be accessed anywhere from any handheld device with a browser. Sellers summarizes by stating, “Having control of that amount of information on your assets in real-time, all the time, is really an invaluable tool to any business with a fleet of vehicles.”
R. Wayne Johnson, Vice President of Sales for Discrete Wireless, said, “We are excited about supplying fleet management solutions to a company as sophisticated as MTEMC. CTS’s record of providing exceptional customer care and consulting make this agreement a great partnership.”
