Now we can keep inventory on hand, process orders quicker, assist in deployment, and be closer to our customers when they need support. We are very fortunate to have a veteran oil and gas executive, Pat Williams, as the person building our Australian presence."
"It's a fantastic opportunity to help launch Geoforce Australia," said Pat Williams, Australia Business Manager for Geoforce. "I first became aware of Geoforce as a prospective customer, and I was extremely impressed with the company's products, service commitment, and culture. Geoforce has a great name already in this region and we intend to build on that. We already have the best, safest, and most rugged GPS tracking products in the world, software and reports designed specifically for oil and gas, and a commitment to customer service. Now we have the feet on the ground as well."
