SALT LAKE CITY - 11/07/2012 - inthinc Technology Solutions Inc., a global provider of telematics, fleet management and driver safety solutions, today announced it has opened a new operation and support center in La Serena, Chile. The new center will further inthinc's commitment to its growing international customer base by offering full Spanish support from installation and field services, to technical support, warehousing and account management.
"As inthinc expands globally, it is critical that we provide direct support to our Latin American-based customers," said inthinc CEO Todd Follmer. "Our solution is already in use across several countries in Latin America and we are uniquely suited to scale our operations in various environments. Leading mining and oil & gas global organizations come to us knowing that we can scale to meet their needs."
Since 2009, inthinc has worked with partners and customers in Central and South America to provide advanced fleet management and driver safety technology.

Driscoll and Associates, Latin American revenues from vehicle location hardware sales and services for fleets and consumers are projected to total nearly $2.7 billion by 2014. The new center in La Serena, Chile will allow inthinc to match its increased business in South America with direct support.
