GPS Fleet Management Helps NFL Keep Track of Players, Players’ Families and Press Media by Tracking the Buses They Use for Transportation

PHOENIX, AZ:  GPS Fleet Management, a leading provider of GPS-based fleet management and consulting services, announced today that they were awarded the contract to assist the NFL in tracking the transportation vehicles used to transport the players, players’ families and the media to and from their hotels and key events.

December 6, 2007, GPS Fleet Management and the Gameday Management Group entered into a agreement to provide tracking for a key group of buses used throughout the two weeks leading up to Super Bowl XLII being played in Glendale, Arizona on February 4, 2008.  The requirements for the buses was 15 second real-time tracking while the buses are in motion yet being able to track the buses when they are turned off and an installation that was not permanently affixed to the bus (there are over 500 buses used for the event and a majority are imported from out of town specifically for this event).  GPS Fleet Management worked closely with Gameday Management in programming the units specifically to the Gameday’s operations specifications.  Installation started January 23 and will continue as more buses enter the Phoenix metropolitan area for the BIG event.  The operations staff at Gameday Management Group’s operation center in Peoria can now track all of these transportation vehicles in real-time at their ops center and can see exactly how far they are from their pick off or drop off point.

President of GPS Fleet Management, Myron Hammes stated, “We are very excited to play this role in helping Super Bowl XLII be one of the best Super Bowls ever!”
