Rochelle Park, N.J.—June 24, 2014—ORBCOMM Inc., a global provider of machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions, announced that it is offering 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 provider of integrated global positioning system (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 expands our reach into the government market,” said Marc Eisenberg, chief executive officer of ORBCOMM. “We are pleased to build on Corp Ten’s long-standing relationship with GSA and provide 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,” said Kamal Sirageldin, chief executive officer of Corp Ten.
ORBCOMM’s M2M solutions are available under Corp Ten’s UniTrac and UCAP device management and billing systems, which many government customers use for enabling multi-network, multi-device operations within a common framework. These devices can also be managed by ORBCOMM’s web applications, which offer advanced reporting and analytics capabilities for asset tracking and monitoring solutions.
