Advanced Tracking Partners with FocusPoint International and the Overwatch & Rescue Plan
February 16, 2023
Advanced Tracking is excited to announce a new partnership with FocusPoint International (FocusPoint), an industry-leading critical event management company that specializes in satellite and cellular device monitoring and emergency escalation services. Founded in 2004 to address a growing need for comprehensive tracking and communications services for the yachting industry, Advanced Tracking has expanded in recent years to offer geolocation and rescue solutions for anyone that wishes to ensure their safety. Advanced Tracking provides an impressive lineup of personal safety communication devices with SOS capabilities from brands such as SPOT by Globalstar, Bivy Stick by ACR, A*LIVE by ProteGear, SmartConnect by Advanced Tracking and many others.
Under the terms of the partnership agreement, Advanced Tracking customers will soon automatically benefit from FocusPoint’s Overwatch & Rescue plan as part of the monthly and annual tracking fees collected by Advanced Tracking. The Overwatch & Rescue (O&R) plan includes 24/7 emergency SOS alert validation and escalation to emergency services. It also comes standard with multilingual and coordinated assistance for customers suffering from medical mishaps, security incidents, and a wide range of unforeseen events requiring emergency assistance. O&R is fully funded, with an indemnified service guarantee that reduces and, in many cases, eliminates the financial exposure associated with emergency assistance.
"We are thrilled to bring to our customers the amazing benefits of FocusPoint’s world-class Overwatch & Rescue plan", said Christophe Allan, Partner and Managing Director at Advanced Tracking. "Never before have we been in a position to offer such a comprehensive, yet affordable and proven rescue solution for our customers", added Allan.
"Advanced Tracking offers a great lineup of tracking and communications devices, supported by a very slick tracking interface", said Dillon Downs, Senior Director of Strategic Development at FocusPoint International. "We’re pleased that Christophe has decided to integrate the Overwatch & Rescue plan as a standard benefit for Advanced Tracking customers", added Downs.
Further communication related to Overwatch & Rescue for Advanced Tracking customers will be made available in the coming weeks.
