Why Customers Choose Propel GPS

When you need asset management, sensor management and state-of-the-art IT, you need Propel GPS.

Propel GPS is an IoT Cloud-Based Technology Company delivering a proven ROI specializing in wireless asset management and sensor monitoring with state-of-the-art information technology.

We have proudly developed a user-friendly solution that allows for real-time tracking of high-dollar and/or critical assets directly from your desktop, tablet or mobile device.

We provide a full featured business solution with many advanced features, with the essential features needed for most small to medium sized transportation businesses to remain competitive in the 21st century.

       




Large-Scale Problem

Approximately 85-90% of this market is comprised of small to medium-sized firms that need affordable technology to:



Without an entrepreneurial firm providing these services -- one that can serve as a technology partner to provide such asset management services, all at an affordable price -- these companies are forced to deal with larger companies that do not recognize them as a valuable customer and end up overpaying for such services.

Propel GPS is here to change that by positively disrupting its markets with a better alternative.


Innovative Solution

We build, monitor and make such an IoT ecosystem available and easy to use for lay, non-technical clients.

We prevent them from employing the resources and knowledge in their businesses to manage such an ecosystem by themselves!

Traction & Accomplishments

PROPEL GPS IS PROUD TO USE OUR TECHNOLOGY TO HELP NONPROFIT RACING FOR HEROES FIGHT THE EPIDEMIC OF VETERAN SUICIDES.

The Propel GPS system is transforming NASCAR driver Colin Garrett’s racecar hauler into a traveling meet-up spot for Veterans, Active Duty, and military families. Colin will hold Meet & Greets throughout the US to raise awareness of Racing For Heroes and fans will be able to track the hauler through our innovative technology.

The hauler will provide a place where Veterans can learn more about RFH’s free mental & physical health services and build community with others who understand how they feel. Racing For Heroes helps them get access to innovative treatments for PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), beat addiction to opioids that were prescribed for pain, and land new jobs, and Propel GPS is honored to help this mission.
