BSM oil and gas success with wireless tracking technology

Friday, May 25, 2007

BSM Technologies of Ontario, Canada, says it is "continuing to achieve great success in the oil and gas sector," selling vehicle and trailer fleet tracking and management solutions.

The company has received orders of $400,000 over the past month, although did not say how much of that was from the oil and gas sector.

It produces fleet tracking equipment which can switch from cellular communications to satellite (Inmarsat D+), depending on whether it is in a cellular coverage area.

Companies use the system to track the location of their vehicles, rigs, chassis and construction equipment.

The system has a panic button, which can be used to transmit information about any problem back to headquarters or the relevant authorities.

It enables oil workers to be in constant contact with their dispatcher and emergency team.

BSM offers software tools which enable the vehicle to be tracked on a map. It will shortly be releasing software to log where a driver has been.
