Messaging Capabilities will Enhance Tracking and Reporting
Functionality of the AlphaTrak Product Line
SATX, Inc. (OTCBB: SATX) announced today that it has signed a strategic alliance agreement with Metrocall, Inc., (OTCBB: MCLLQ) one of the largest providers of wireless messaging services in the United States.
Under the terms of the agreement, Metrocall will add SATX's patented AlphaTrak product line to its portfolio of wireless messaging devices and value-added services. Metrocall will provide users, through its large nationwide sales force, the AlphaTrak units and required software to remotely track assets the AlphaTrak is installed in, and when required, provide remote functions such as disabling the vehicles or operating the door locks. SATX and Metrocall will work closely together to ensure a successful launch of AlphaTrak throughout the wireless provider's extensive channels of distribution.
Metrocall's one-way and two-way networking capabilities will be used to enhance the tracking and reporting services of SATX's AlphaTrak product line. This agreement solidifies the AlphaTrak products as efficient, high-quality GPS-based tracking and control solutions.
Terry Colbert, CEO and President of SATX commented, "We are extremely pleased to enter into this agreement with Metrocall. Their extensive sales capabilities coupled with our patented, proprietary GPS-based tracking and control technology will make us a leader in this market. We look forward to a long and successful relationship with Metrocall and are dedicated to providing them with our full support."
Metrocall's nationwide distribution channels, including approximately 100 retail outlets and a large robust direct sales force, are ideally suited to bringing the AlphaTrak product line to the marketplace.
"This relationship with SATX represents another step in Metrocall's evolution from a one-way paging organization to a total provider of value-added wireless solutions," said Stan F. Sech, Metrocall's senior vice president of business development. "The tracking of valuable assets, such as motor vehicles, heavy equipment and freight, is a logical step for Metrocall given our two-way wireless messaging and data transmittal capabilities."
