DALLAS, May 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Geoforce, Inc., an international provider of asset management solutions for the oil and gas industry, announced today the widespread commercial availability of the GT0, the world’s smallest industrial GPS asset tracking device. The device is designed to track and remotely monitor assets too challenging for other GPS devices.
"Geoforce is constantly trying to gauge what our customers will need next," said James MacLean III, Geoforce’s President and CEO. "What we’ve been hearing out there is this: smaller, easier and whenever possible – more affordable. We’ve purpose-built this device to try and meet those needs without dropping the quality-level our customers deserve."
The GT0 has a powerful omni-directional antenna allowing for placement in almost any orientation on an asset. The tracking device is engineered with RFID and GPS technology for location and identification, as well as unique QR coding for mobile scanning of product information. Its compact size allows the tag to fit on equipment where previous larger and bulkier asset tracking devices could not be implemented. It is an IP67 device (weatherproof) and has an optional metal bezel for added protection. With an expected five to seven year battery life, the GT0 is the world’s first truly simple-to-deploy "slap and track" device.
Over 300 companies currently use Geoforce’s award winning solutions to manage over 100,000 assets across six continents. The GT0 was previously offered in limited release to several service and rental companies beginning in January of this year.
