Qualcomm Incorporated, a leading provider of business-to-business wireless enterprise applications and services, and BorgSolutions, Inc., a leading business process applications developer, report that BorgSolutions' patent-pending fleet management platform Astral™ is now fully integrated with Qualcomm's GlobalTRACS® and GlobalTRACS Lite™ equipment management systems. This new integration gives customers advanced fleet management and tracking capabilities from one seamless, Web-based platform.

"We are excited to bring to market this integrated solution that we have been mutually working toward since January 2007," said Lance Massey, director of sales for BorgSolutions, Inc. "By partnering with Qualcomm, a world leader in mobile information and services, and offering this solution to our mutual clients, we are able to provide a true turn-key fleet management platform beyond what is currently available in the market."

Built by fleet owners for fleet owners, BorgSolutions' Astral is the first truly intuitive fleet intelligence platform designed for the construction, government, rental and fleet services industries. Astral can help streamline maintenance, improve inventory management, reduce theft, manage employee productivity and maximize return on investment on a continuous, predictable basis.  With Astral, users have a global view of all activities occurring between inventory, work orders, purchase orders and mechanical staff, enabling a powerful, single point of access to all crucial fleet information.  By integrating Astral with the GlobalTRACS and GlobalTRACS Lite equipment management systems, BorgSolutions and Qualcomm have enabled their customers to take immediate action on critical maintenance tasks and ensure their fleet's uptime is maximized.

"We've thoroughly enjoyed working with BorgSolutions to offer customers the best of their technologies with the best of ours," said Chris Dorny, director of product management, Qualcomm Enterprise Services.  "Astral's robust equipment and vehicular maintenance capabilities, combined with the GlobalTRACS and GlobalTRACS Lite systems' precise location and time information, provide customers with advanced fleet management for superior performance and improved business practices."
