LOCiMOBILE’s 2-way GPS tracking platform has garnered a significant increase in awareness and demand, giving GTX Corp a strong foothold in this $13 billion industry.

“Increase demand for 2-way GPS tracking can be attributed to several factors including hundreds of millions of new GPS enabled smartphones hitting the market, to an increase in boomers becoming memory impaired, to corporations needing to better manage work productivity and logistics, but the seismic shift came from the massive life style adoption of mobile location based social networking,” adds Mr. Bertagna. “Facebook and Twitter, became giants by answering the “what are you doing question” and we added the missing component… “where is” or “where are you doing it” which has become the new paradigm for staying connected.”

LOCiMOBILE GPS Tracking apps ride the Android wave of popularity.

Google’s operating system for cellphones has overtaken Nokia’s Symbian system as the market leader. In the three months through December, manufacturers shipped 33.3 million cellphones running Android, Google’s free, open-source cellphone operating system, up from just 4.7 million a year earlier, according to Canalys, a research firm in Reading, England.

Analysts said the figures represented a tectonic shift in the industry, cementing the influence of Google’s advertising-driven business on the mobile Internet.

Knowing where to find 'what' makes 'who' quite valuable.

While nearly everyone knows that GPS is an acronymn for Global Positioning Satellites, few understand how many different applications of the technology there are beyond the dash board navigation systems or the GPS enabled cell phones for which we have become so fond.

Tracking people, vehicles and valuables can be enabled by palm-sized portable devices like the gpVector miniMT that allow enterprises to provide security and recovery services that are invaluable to subscribing clients. As the marketplace learns of these applications the growth of GPS service bureaus will spread around the world.

For the small business or the multinational corporation, monitoring has become an intrinsic touch point governing all end to end business practices. This tremendous cost saving advantage can be uniquely customized to accommodate any requirement.

Knowledge is more than a tool. It is a solution.
