Recovery Industry to Benefit from Blackline's Covert Tracker

09:00 EDT Monday, April 22, 2013

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - April 22, 2013) - Blackline GPS ("Blackline") (TSX VENTURE:BLN) is pleased to announce an agreement with MVTRAC for the distribution of Blackline's Dart™ covert and asset tracking system into the Recovery Industry. Well positioned within the auto finance, government, and law enforcement market, MVTRAC's Intelligent Data Network™ processes real-time data from public and privates sources to automatically identify delinquent collateral, including vehicles, for an efficient recovery.

"We're excited for the opportunity to exclusively distribute Blackline's Dart product to further our efforts in revolutionizing the Recovery Industry," said Scott Jackson, MVTRAC CEO. "Rather than running an account multiple times to recover a vehicle, the system will exponentially minimize the amount of runs per recovery which decreases the cost per assignment through minimized fuel and time costs."

"We are pleased to have partnered with MVTRAC to empower their recovery agent customers with new technology and capability by aiding the tracking and recovery of defaulted collateral," said Greg Rude, Blackline's VP of Industrial Sales.

To aid in vehicle recovery, Blackline's Dart covert tracker automatically reports the street address, heading, direction, and speed of travel at rates of up to every 10 seconds. Dart incorporates advanced features including data storage while out of coverage for automatic upload when connected, and cellular location technology that provides a location when GPS signals are unavailable, such as when underground or within parking garages.
