With ubiquitous network coverage, open connectivity software and ruggedized hardware, Quantus is ideal for energy companies, waste management facilities, lubrication companies, asphalt factories and frac tanks looking to gain supply chain efficiencies, reduce operating expenses and enhance customer service.
“ORBCOMM’s agreement with Camgian will further expand our market reach in providing global two-way data communications for M2M solutions in the oil and gas industry,” said Brian Bell, ORBCOMM’s Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Leveraging our core competencies, ORBCOMM and Camgian will facilitate application development and integration, shorten time to market and increase widespread adoption of tank monitoring solutions in the waste oil, virgin oil and fuel markets.”
