Brekford Corp (OTCQB:BFDI), an upfitter of police vehicles, is partnering with Trimble Navigation Limited, an automatic vehicle location provider, in an effort in part to help federal agencies comply with Federal directives like Executive Order 13514 which requires greenhouse emissions to be measured, reported and reduced.
"Given today's fiscal landscape, agency operating budgets are under intense scrutiny and many are being cut by double digit numbers," says C B Brechin, CEO of Breford. "As the debate over utilization rates continues, there is an increasing amount of pressure being places on Federal agencies to cut costs. Through our partnership with Trimble, Brekford will help agencies better manage mileage, idle time and fuel usage in an effort to reduce emissions as well as fuel costs, which should result in billions of dollars saved annually."
Trimble's GeoManager Fleet Management system integrates GPS, vehicle diagnostics, driver safety, wireless communications and a hosted software application suite. GeoManager enables visibility into real-time field status and allows fleet managers to better manage overall vehicle and workforce performance while lowering operating costs and improving productivity.
