Los Angeles, Calif. – February 19, 2013 – LOCiMOBILE®, Inc. a wholly owned subsidiary of GTX Corp (OTCBB: GTXO), has launched its first enterprise app for companies looking to effectively track and monitor their work force in real time. Track My Work Force (“TMWF”) is currently available for download on iTunes, and based on its early success, is in development for release on the Android platform. Once downloaded on either an iPhone or iPad, the app works in the background and reports the whereabouts of that device back to the GTX Corp monitoring backend. The app was designed for small to medium size companies that have a mobile sales or service work force and need to know the location of their reps in real time. Companies in the U.S., Canada, Czech Republic and Morocco, in industries including transportation, construction, plumbing, IT, medical and pharmaceutical, have already deployed the TMWF app and the GTX backend monitoring platform.
Jack Daynes, from the Diamond Group stated, “Our diamond delivery business relies heavily on our travelling sales representatives in order to maintain relations with existing customers as well as meeting new ones. GTX Corp’s Track My Work Force app was extensively tested during our system trial. The results were such that we implemented the program immediately and haven’t regretted it in the slightest. Both the pricing, and the service that we’ve received have exceeded our expectations”.
Leveraging the mass adoption of smart phones and tablets in the work force companies all over the world can easily deploy this technology. Last month a pharmaceutical company based out of Morocco that services 25,000 pharmacies across several North African countries deployed the app for 150 of its sales reps.
“We are very pleased with the initial feedback and potential of this app,” stated Patrick Bertagna GTX Corp CEO. “There are tens of thousands of companies all over the world that can benefit and increase customer service, productivity and security from 2 way GPS technology and our now able to implement this technology with a simple download.”
The TMWF app is an efficient and cost-effective way for business owners and managers to keep track of and manage their mobile work force. It’s faster and safer than text messaging and allows the worker to focus on the task at hand rather than spending valuable time calling HQ to check in and report. The app costs $9.99 initially, and there is an additional monthly monitoring service fee that costs around $5.00 per user per month.
The Company provides a free 2 week evaluation for any business with more than 5 employees, and custom solutions along with a licensable white label platform for larger companies.

Location-based services to grow as seen by LOCiMOBILE rise in membership: 1.1 million users in 135 countries
GOTHENBURG: Location-based mobile services are set to enjoy rapid revenue growth in Europe and North America, aided by social networks and greater interest from marketers, a study has argued.
Berg Insight, the consultancy, reported the amount of people utilizing these tools will more than double in these regions over the course of 2011, assisted by the rising uptake of devices like the iPhone.
“Higher adoption of smartphones is driving usage of mobile internet services and apps in general,” said André Malm, senior analyst at Berg Insight.
“As more and more developers add location support in their apps to enhance the user experience, LBS is now gaining mainstream acceptance among mobile subscribers.”
More specifically, 20% of mobile subscribers in the European nations tracked will regularly employ these services by the end of this year, hitting 30% in North America, where smartphone penetration is higher.
“The installed base of GPS handsets in Europe has reached 35% of total handsets and surpassed 70% in North America,” Malm added.
Revenue levels in North America stood at $620m in 2010, and Berg Insight suggested the returns generated by this channel should be $710m in 2016.
Figures for the 29 major European markets featured – including France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK – came in at €205m in 2010, and were pegged at a potential €435m by 2016.
Social networking sites are seeing especially impressive growth concerning mobile phone access rates, with tools like Facebook Places and Twitter’s equivalent service enable members to easily share their whereabouts.
This category is expected to witness the biggest expansion during the period covered by the analysis, reflecting the broader trends at work across the digital arena.
Ads are already the “main source” of revenues in most categories – except mapping, where this figure falls below 10% – but while ad-spend will grow, it may be “some years” before a real marketing model and critical mass of users and develop, the study said.

Higher gas prices present new retail challenges stimulating increased local promotions for retail brands.
In recent years, gasoline prices in the United States have fluctuated widely. Because it is difficult for consumers to alter their gas consumption in the short term, this variation in transportation costs significantly affects the portion of disposable income that is available for other categories of household expenses.
Recent research finds that a significant increase in gas prices leads the average household to reduce shopping frequency by approximately 20% and total expenditure by about 14%. A substantial shift was documented in spending away from traditional grocery formats to one-stop shopping supercenters. That same significant rise in gas prices also resulted in a 3.6% reduction in grocery format share and a 24.9% increase in supercenter share.
As might be expected, consumers buy fewer full-price name brands shifting more to promotions on name brands than to private label. For the jump in gas prices we have recently seen, regular-priced national brands lose 12% of their share while promoted national brands gain 29%, with private label gaining only 3%.
