ISSAQUAH, WA and MARION, KY – Cinterion Wireless Modules and Xtreme Tracker, LLC have commercially launched  XT1, a fleet management solution powered by Cinterion's wireless modules. The XT1 system helped pre-launch adopters improve fleet and equipment productivity and increase profits in the first months of use, according to

XT1 was designed to help ensure that construction industry equipment, rental fleets included, are maximized for profit and longevity while reducing unauthorized use, theft, and misuse of equipment. This fleet management system includes real-time reporting, location monitoring, a SmartStart ignition system — which ensures only authorized operators can use equipment — maintenance tracking, and on demand access 24/7.

The XT1, Xtreme Tracker's first product, can be integrated with either Cinterion's AC75 or AC65 modules, the latter being a lower cost option when customers do not require all features.

The XT1 hardware replaces the ignition area of any make and model of equipment, e.g. backhoe, forklift, tractor, etc., eliminating the need for keys. Once enabled, Xtreme Tracker prevents the operation of vehicles by any unauthorized person via exclusive SmartStart technology. A secure Web site offers customers constant, real-time equipment monitoring including engine start, stop and run time, operator performance, and location information.
