Numerex Awarded Multi-Year Asset Tracking Deal With Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)

Company Partners with Software Tech Enterprises to Deliver Solution

ATLANTA, March 31, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Numerex Corp (NASDAQ:NMRX), a leading provider of enterprise solutions enabling the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced their partnership with Software Tech Enterprises, Inc (STE), a provider of Information Technology (IT) services to Federal, State and local government agencies.  This partnership will provide satellite tracking systems to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), enabling real-time visibility to high value assets like critical equipment and materials for disaster relief assistance.  These asset tracking solutions allow logistics managers to track and manage tens of thousands of assets in the field, especially in times of little or no cellular service and connectivity.

FEMA, part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), is the nation's preeminent emergency management agency. The Numerex and STE program allows FEMA to maintain continuous visibility throughout the disaster supply chain which includes FEMA-owned assets and resources. FEMA has been using Numerex's advanced satellite asset tracking systems since 2009, but now through STE, future growth opportunities may exist by expansion of the FEMA program or by furthering the program's reach into additional federal agencies (OFAs), non-governmental organizations (NGOs), state and local governments, as well as the private sector.

Marc Hoffmann, Numerex's VP of Enterprise IoT commented, "Numerex is pleased to maintain this highly successful program in partnership with STE with the critical mission of providing vital supply chain visibility to FEMA and other emergency response stakeholders. Our platforms and technologies are optimized to perform reliably in the most challenging disaster environments and we are proud to support our nation's first responders."

In addition to state of the art asset tracking technology, the STE and Numerex teams provide ongoing logistics and operational support as part of an end-to-end managed service solution.

Dwayne Jackson, Software Tech Enterprises President/CEO added, "Our teams' unique systems expertise and extensive experience managing government technology services enable this best of class asset tracking program. We are excited about working with Numerex and look forward to expanding our partnership in the future."
