ATS will provide the vShepherd line of GPS asset tracking products and services to LBX.

ATS Asset Tracking Services Inc. (ATS), a provider of GPS tracking products and services, announced it has signed a significant deal with LBX Company LLC of Lexington, Kentucky. ATS's vShepherd tracking device is being installed on LBX's line of excavators including Link-Belt Earthmoving, Forestry and Material Handling Equipment.

The vShepherd merges Internet, cellular and global positioning system (GPS) technologies to form a powerful system for asset protection, fleet management and theft recovery. Recognizing the additional value vShepherd will provide to LBX's Link-Belt distributors, LBX Financial Services (LBXFS) plans to implement vShepherd in select excavator models within its leasing program. This will save Link-Belt distributors both time and money, as they will be able to accurately locate the position of Link-Belt equipment at any time, plan and schedule maintenance, and get hour meter readings of engine run-times. Distributors will also be able to utilize the FleetReach feature of vShepherd to view a weekly report showing the status of an entire Link-Belt fleet and highlight what machines need immediate service, creating efficiencies in planned maintenance.
