Founded in 1975, MeteorComm has been serving a diverse customer base to track, monitor, and control mobile and fixed assets including vehicles, locomotives, marine vessels, aircraft, and remote hydro-meteorological stations.

MeteorComm's packet data networks are based on Extended Line of Sight (ELOS) and Meteor Burst Communications (MBC) technologies.

Working with a 20-year-old business system designed for another industry, MeteorComm decided it was time for an upgrade. “Encompix mirrors the way we do business,” said Karen McDonald, accounting manager. “We looked at other systems, but they needed ‘workarounds’ to meet our requirements. Encompix did everything we needed right out of the box. In particular, the revenue recognition feature stood out as a differentiator.”
