Finda Corp Pty Ltd. acting as the exclusive distributor in Australia for
Location Based Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: LBAS), announced today a
partnership agreement with Australian Warranty Network (AWN) to resell
Commercial and Consumer LBT vehicle GPS tracker solutions into the
automotive and other vehicle Extended Warranty market in Australia and
The LBT Vehicle GPS tracker products localized for the ANZ market
consist of GSM quad-band devices designed to receive satellite
transmitted global positioning coordinates that are then relayed through
a GSM network to a smartphone, tablet, or web browser on a computer
showing a vehicle’s position on a map. Commercial and consumer users of
the LBT vehicle GPS tracking system are able to pin-point a vehicle’s
location as well as monitor 60-day vehicle travel history including
speed, altitude, or longitude/latitude coordinates all plotted on an
easy to navigate map displayed on an Android or iOS mobile device, or a
computer. The flexibility of the LBT system benefits all types of
vehicle owners who want to monitor driver behavior, reduce costs on
unnecessary vehicle use, or to recover stolen vehicles.
“We are excited about adding the LBT GPS tracking solutions to our suite
of vehicle services sold by dealers throughout Australia,” said Ray
Mahoney, CEO of AWN. He continued by adding, “This is an ideal way for
(auto) dealers to expand their business by offering LBT GPS trackers to
small-to-medium sized businesses and fleet owners wanting to keep track
of their vehicles.”
Anthony Sissian, chairman of Finda Corp says, “Our relationship with AWN
will provide an immediate distribution channel for LBT vehicle GPS
trackers into the Australian new and used motor, and motorcycle
dealerships. We are enthusiastic about this opportunity because we
expect it to open up sales into other industry sectors like insurers,
mechanical and electrical repair fleets, and possibly with finance
brokers wanting to keep track of vehicles.”
“This is a great win for LBT to break into the Australian and New
Zealand market through this partnership with AWN,” said Dave Morse, CEO
of LBT. “We’re confident the LBT Vehicle GPS Trackers will be an
attractive addition for auto dealers looking to complement their
accessories business – as GPS trackers are becoming more appealing to
small business owners trying to reduce operations costs, or even to
families monitoring teenage driver behavior.”
Availability of the LBT Vehicle GPS Tracker product is set for summer of
2014. Auto dealers interested in offering LBT Vehicle GPS Trackers
should contact their AWN representative to inquire about reseller

To paraphrase someone famous, "The definition of insanity is to do something the same way over and over again and expect a different result".
Humans are creatures of habit and when it comes to storage, old habits die hard.
Why do we continue to put our faith in legacy storage providers when they haven't invented anything new in decades. Sure, they re-badge their products every couple of years to make their messaging look modern, but ultimately, it's the same old stuff with a new coat of lipsti...
