PinPoint Joins ORBA!

PinPoint GPS Solutions is pleased to announce that it joined the Ontario Road Builders Association (ORBA). PinPoint had the pleasure of participating in ORBA’s 86th Annual Convention, which explored leadership innovation in transportation environments.

PinPoint enjoyed the opportunity to meet and exchange views with ORBA’s members. Through our engagement we learned:

  • spending on infrastructure projects remains flat/fixed while operating costs continue to increase;
  • members were interested in learning more about how we have helped a large construction firm save more than $1,100 per truck, per year in fuel; and
  • participants were surprised at how simple and quick it is to implement plug-and-play fleet tracking solutions into their organization and see results with very little effort.

PinPoint continues to lead in providing fleet tracking solutions to the construction sector. Our new membership will enable us to better serve our clients in this area.

For more information on PinPoint GPS Solutions and how our products and services can help you increase efficiencies and decrease operating costs please contact us at sales@pinpointgps.ca or 1-855-624-6477.

CMX/CIPHEX 2012: A Huge Success!

April 23, 2012 - by Vince Arone

According to HRAI Association:

“The industry’s leading trade event for the HVACR and Plumbing sectors finished its 2012 run with sustained attendance numbers and positive comments from exhibitors. The 20th biennial production of the CMX-CIPHEX Show at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, March 22, 23 and 24, 2012 attracted over 14,000 registrants who came to the show seeking new products, information and plenty of industry networking.

“With over 900 booths, CMX-CIPHEX is truly the showplace for the industry,”
says Show Committee Chairman, David Morden. “Not only is it a source for new products and trends, it’s an outstanding opportunity to come face-to-face with suppliers. You get answers and pick up new ideas.”

Those sentiments were echoed by Show Manager, Patrick Shield. “The show floor was busy each day of the show and our numbers indicate that more than 10% of our attendees visited the show for two and three days. That says we have the kind of products and the information they’re looking for. They’re willing to set aside time from a busy schedule to devote themselves to a day or more at their industry show.”

Ron Whaling, Owner of Ron Whaling Plumbing Ltd. in St. Pauls, Ontario was the lucky winner of the 2012 Nissan Commercial Van, which will be outfitted for his needs with customized fittings as well as one year of complimentary GPS service from PinPoint GPS Solutions.
