Abaqus, Inc., a provider of the first-of-a-kind myGeoTracking cloud-hosted location and messaging platform, has expanded coverage of the myGeoTracking mobile workforce management service into the Canadian market with the addition of Telus and Bell Mobility to its network of wireless carrier partners. With this launch, Abaqus adds support for 15M new subscribers in Canada on top of its support for 325M+ subscribers in the US market (comprising nearly 95% mobile devices across all major carriers in the US). Additional carrier certification in Canada is pending.

Similar to customers in the US, were looking forward to providing the benefits of SMB and Enterprise solutions such as field force management, mobile time clocking, vehicle and asset tracking, and location-enhanced messaging services, to Canadian customers, said Shailendra Jain, CEO of Abaqus. This expansion of service coverage will also benefit our transportation customers with trans-border operations and responsibilities. We plan to similarly expand our offering into other International markets in the coming year.

Hassle-free Mobile Team and Asset Management

Unlike smartphone-based applications that require special phones and client apps, the carrier-grade cloud-based myGeoTracking location management service works with any cell phone or wireless device and provides you with a real-time workforce and asset management solution by blending location information, Enterprise Messaging/Interactive Voice Response (IVR), and a powerful rules engine into a single platform.

The platform can find the location of any phone or wireless device by probing the cellular network for a general position using either Cell ID (located within the service area of a cell tower), or a precise location using GPS inside the device.
