ORBCOMM Inc., a global provider of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) solutions, has announced that it will offer its portfolio of M2M solutions to government customers under Corp Ten’s General Services Administration (GSA) schedule. A long-time ORBCOMM partner, Corp Ten is a leading provider of integrated GPS tracking and information management solutions for the federal government.
As part of Corp Ten’s GSA schedule, ORBCOMM can efficiently market its M2M products and services, including satellite and cellular connectivity from ORBCOMM and its global network partners, asset tracking and monitoring devices, satellite modems, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags and web reporting applications, directly to federal, state and local government agencies. The GSA schedule allows government agencies to purchase commercial goods and services using pre-negotiated terms and pricing in order to streamline the procurement process.
“Having ORBCOMM products and services available on the GSA schedule marks a significant milestone for our company and expands our reach into the government market,” says Marc Eisenberg, Chief Executive Officer of ORBCOMM. “We are pleased to build on Corp Ten’s long-standing relationship with GSA and provide cost-effective, advanced M2M solutions through a universal vehicle to help government customers increase operational efficiency and visibility of their global assets.”
“The addition of ORBCOMM’s M2M solutions to our GSA schedule is a perfect complement to our current government offerings and greatly broadens the scope of our value chain,” says Kamal Sirageldin, Chief Executive Officer of Corp Ten. “ORBCOMM’s comprehensive product portfolio includes connectivity services from multiple networks and a broad range of tracking devices ranging from modems to complete solutions, which supports Corp Ten’s strategy of delivering a wide range of versatile, high-performance solutions to government customers.”
ORBCOMM’s M2M solutions will be available under Corp Ten’s UniTrac and UCAP device management and billing systems, which have become the standard for many government customers for enabling multi-network, multi-device operations within a common framework. These devices can also be managed by ORBCOMM’s robust web applications, which offer advanced reporting and analytics capabilities for asset tracking and monitoring solutions.
