Universal Tracking Solutions, Inc., the rapidly growing GPS fleet tracking technology provider, has now uniquely positioned itself to service communities throughout the country. Through its recently announced partnership with The National Association Of Regional Councils (NARC), UTS will be able to provide regions and local communities with tracking and GPS technology to help them reduce vehicle operating costs and improve air quality.

The solution being offered is the Automated Vehicle Location System (AVL)/Vehicle GPS with integrated Garmin navigation, and will be available to local community organization fleets and vehicles at a discounted price through NARC. The system is designed to lower overall fleet operating costs, mitigate greenhouse gas emissions, and even contribute to homeland security preparedness. Users of the system have experienced a positive return on investment, through reduced fuel costs and increased productivity, but have also decreased carbon emissions and improved safety and liability issues.

The partnership also involves RMJ Technologies, seller of the UTS system, and Garmin International, global leader in satellite navigation. Universal Tracking provides the traditional vehicle tracking technology, but has integrated GPS navigation capability from Garmin, for voice prompted driver directions.

The National Association Of Regional Councils (NARC) is a community advocate. It promotes regional cooperation and supports the common needs of its membership by representing their interests on national issues, with the federal government, and by helping to identify and provide beneficial solutions to common problems.

Betty Knight, NARC President, said of the partnership, “NARC members have varying needs when it comes to finding solutions and controlling costs, and can greatly benefit from what this unique partnership has to offer.” She went on to say, “NARC is pleased to work with UTS, Garmin and RMJ to provide regions and local communities with technology options that will enhance transportation, air quality and homeland security planning.”
