"Vehicle Tracking Solutions is a leader in the vehicle tracking industry, as evidenced by their 9,700 installations to date," stated Bill Gemmell, CEO of GT3. "We are excited about teaming up with VTS to provide a much anticipated enhancement to the Odyssey™ system."
GT3 customers who choose to use the GPS Tracker Module in Odyssey™ will also have access to FleetMinder©, VTS' proprietary fleet management software.
