Our Staff

Bob Meeker, President/CEO
Satellite, GPS Tracking and Cisco: Business Administration
Toll Free Phone Number: 877-589-9800


Bob started the company back in 1994. The learning curve was steep and finding capable people to be an integral and productive part of the company “family” was a journey and learning experience.  Currently, we have the best team of people ever. I’m convinced that our customers appreciate doing business with us because of the way we conduct business much more than for the products we sell. We would welcome the opportunity to work with you too. Please give us a call to learn for yourself why you might consider our products and services.
