TORRANCE, Calif., Jan. 28, 2003 -- Radio Satellite Integrators, Inc. (RSI), a global provider of customized GPS-based vehicle tracking and mobile data solutions, on Tuesday announced the completion of an Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) system for the Erie County Water Authority (ECWA) in Erie County, New York.

The ECWA is responsible for the upkeep and supply of water to 640,000 residents in the greater Buffalo, NY area. The AVL system was procured through a public request for proposal process and the RSI system was selected as the best value for the ECWA.

Using the RSI AVL system and Kenwood two-way radios, the ECWA is able to track and monitor its vehicle fleet for a variety of dispatching, supervisory, and security uses.

Viewed on RSI's GIS mapping software, ECWA administration can see detailed real-time and archived location data for the fleet. Included in the water utility's fleet are technician, supervisor, meter reader, emergency, and other operations vehicles. With the system in place, ECWA can now instantly see on computerized maps where each vehicle is or has been in a matter of seconds.

"It is crucial for the providers of critical utilities such as water to operate with the utmost efficiency," states RSI president Jonathan Michels, "With our system as a powerful tool, ECWA operations will be able to better manage their mobile workforce and help keep things flowing."
