Today we’d like to introduce you to David Westfall.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Global Locator Systems of Texas LLC, started in July of 2015. After being laid off from the financial industry in 2011, I had a difficult time finding a position that I enjoyed. My degree is in Geography and have a GIS certificate so I thought why not find a use for my true passion. I decided to open up a company that provides GPS Tracking products and Fleet Management solutions. The one thing I did not want to do was offer just one type of tracking devices. We provide tracking for Fleet Management, Assets, Equipment, Pets, Teens, PTO Monitoring and Children and Wandering Patients.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Not a smooth road. The biggest struggle has been determining which niche to focus on to grow the company. My passion is with personal tracking for wandering individuals but profit is small. Fleet competition is tough there are numerous companies out there competing for business. Then figuring out the best price. I quickly learned people want the fair price not always the cheapest, So figuring out the right price has been tough to cheap people think you have junk, to expensive they lose interest.
Please tell us about Global Locator Systems of Texas.
Global Locator Systems of Texas is a local company providing GPS Tracking and Fleet Management solutions. There are numerous companies that provide just fleet tracking or just personal tracking we provide a number of quality products. If you’re a construction company we can help you track your fleet, help you monitor your equipment and let you know if onsite material is removed. We are a no frills company providing you with the products you need we listen to what you want to accomplish with your tracker(s). If we don’t offer the product you need we help you find it by directing you to other companies. The company is known for providing premium GPS Tracking devices and simply to use software. Our software is designed to be easy to use. This is on purpose as we have devices for wandering patients, some individuals who need to access the software are not the most computer savvy. Currently, we are working on a project to provide a local non-profit with personal GPS tracking devices to assist locating their students who may wander off during outings. My company will provide the device and monthly monitoring at wholesale. Ideally, I am looking for local businesses to help pay for this expense. Global Locator Systems of Texas is also a corporate sponsor of an eleven year old who races motor cross. We are different from our completion in many ways such as always dealing with the person who sold you the device never a call center and if you need something customized in most cases it’s not a problem and in most cases, there is no extra charge.
If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
Get more involved earlier in groups or organizations that would help me build relationships that could help my business get recognized by local businesses.
