Vericom Will Garner "Joe the Plumber" Immediate ROI Using Its Real-Time Tracking and Reporting GPS Solution No Matter Who Is the Next President

CRANFORD, NJ--(Marketwire - October 16, 2008) - Vericom Technologies, an Intergis company which is a leading provider of Mobile Resource Management (MRM) and logistics solutions, will save "Joe the Plumber" Wurzelbacher thousands of dollars with its solutions for real-time tracking and reporting, route optimization and scheduling, regardless of whether Obama or McCain wins the upcoming election.

The Presidential candidates mentioned "Joe" 26 times during Wednesday's debate regarding Obama's business tax plan. Wurzelbacher works for a plumbing company in Ohio, which he is planning to buy and discussed in a TV interview. (

"The amount of dollars and immediate return on investment that Joe can receive implementing our MRM software, virtually overnight, is far more significant than any tax increases small businesses receive," explains Intergis CEO Jeff Cohen. "Many of our customers are, in fact, plumbing entrepreneurs like Joe, who use our solutions to efficiently manage their vehicle fleets, mobile workforce and remote assets. Through an integrated suite of GPS enabled, vehicle-based technologies, our proven solutions reduce operational costs and increase workforce productivity."

One Vericom customer, HMS Plumbing, in Woodbridge, Virginia, says the Vericom MRM solution, "has reduced expenses due to overtime, side jobs, reduction in mileage and unauthorized use. The Vericom system has more than paid for itself and it also gives us peace of mind."

Vericom customer Vito Plumbing, in Rockville, Maryland, says that by implementing Vericom MRM, "we gained instant access into our fleet and driver's activity, specifically drivers who take their vehicles home. My team has reduced unauthorized night and weekend driving, as well as fuel costs and overtime. We've also been able to reduce speeding episodes, increasing safety and gas mileage. Besides the savings that more than pay for the system, our favorite aspect of the MRM solution is that our support needs have been few and when we do call in, which is rare, we get immediate and reliable customer service."

"Indeed, Joe may be paying higher taxes in the future, but if he implements our software, it will be the result of growing his business from running a more efficient operation," Cohen explains.
