eDispatch Links with Southern LINC

eDispatch.com Wireless Data made an agreement with Southern LINC, a wholly owned wireless communications subsidiary of Southern Co., the largest producer of electricity in the United States.

The deal is designed to provide access to eDispatch.com's Wireless Internet Dispatch System. Southern LINC plans to offer eDispatch service to its more than 100,000 subscriber base -- which includes businesses in the transportation, healthcare, Utilities, and government, security, field service, and repair industry sectors.

"The agreement with Southern LINC represents a breakthrough for the mobile workplace because it makes sophisticated dispatch services simple, accessible and affordable," said Brian Ellis, eDispatch.com president.

"The agreement is also a strong signal to the marketplace that eDispatch.com is the preferred choice of a market leader such as Southern LINC. With more than 100,000 subscribers, Southern LINC represents nearly six percent of the total US mobile market that we are targeting as a company."

With eDispatch, Southern LINC customers will have access to the benefits of a managed and connected mobile workforce at a fraction of the cost of traditional CAD (Computer Aided Dispatch) systems.

The first "Internet hosted" dispatch service of its kind, eDispatch.com allows businesses to enjoy the efficiencies of expensive CAD systems while utilizing widely available Internet browsers. eDispatch.com's complete solution can be accessed via the Internet and scaled to meet the needs of customers as they grow.
