    The people were great to work with

    Customer Service Technician (Former Employee) Denver, CO

    ProsIT, Finance and Operations were very helpful in providing information or fixing the computer system so that customers could use the product.

    ConsToo many failures caused daily return authorization to bring back products for repair

    Advice to Senior ManagementNew management kicked out many employees to bring in their people. You need to scrap the current ERP system for one that has flexibility. If your product continues to fail, you are going to have major problems.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Company growth and direction has stalled.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsAs an engineer, it is a great place to work if you want to learn everything about GPS technology and vehicle control systems.

    ConsBeing a small company it offers a very limited career path.

    It is very difficult to introduce new ideas in an engineering department that is stuck in 20 year old software engineering practices.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSell the company to an organization that knows how to manage growth and expenses, leverage the technology and its patents.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good Technology and smart people, however need more process

    Engineer (Former Employee) Fremont, CA

    ProsLots of smart people
    Fairly small close knit place
    Very real target market
    Very cool technology

    ConsToo many years "Starting Up"
    Need to forget about being bought out and worry about competing with heavyweights
    Need to start driving innovation from bottom up sometimes
    Put individuals goals aside and look at profitable markets.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart working on derivative software offerings in farming domain, there is lower startup cost for small company
