Salespeople at Motorola are adding the Global Locating System (GLS) technology from SkyBitz to the existing portfolio of asset tracking solutions they offer customers. The companies are jointly pursuing new security and global logistics markets, including intermodal containers, rail, and automotive fleets while continuing to serve the trucking, agriculture and construction equipment markets.
Although Motorola will be selling the SkyBitz solutions to its customers in North America, SkyBitz noted that its information services would continue to pass through the SkyBitz Network Operations Center for complete asset monitoring.
In 2003, SkyBitz secured an investment from Motorola Ventures, Motorola's strategic venture group. At the same time, Motorola and SkyBitz entered into an agreement to collaborate on the development of new products that build upon the SkyBitz GLS technology platform.
