Vericom Mobile Resource Management System Saves Friend Tire

August 29, 2007

COLUMBIA, MD – Vericom Technologies, Inc., a nationwide provider of Mobile Resource Management (MRM) solutions to service organizations, announced that Friend Tire Company, a nationwide tire dealer and delivery service, was able to recover thousands of dollars in stolen vehicles and merchandise thanks to the Vericom GPS-enabled devices installed on their fleet of delivery trucks.

Friend Tire uses VeriVision, on its fleet of 85 delivery trucks, an MRM solution with detailed vehicle location capabilities. In the past year, Friend Tire has recovered two stolen vehicles and their contents – in Texas, a 26,000-lb. box truck with $40,000 worth of merchandise, and in Tennessee, a 3/4 ton pick-up truck with a full rack of merchandise. VeriVision makes it possible to monitor the location and progress of vehicles, allowing for immediate asset location.
