“Fiscal 2019 represented a challenging year for TrackX,” said President and CEO, Tim Harvie. “Several of the Company’s larger enterprise opportunities were delayed beyond Q4 2019. In addition, the Company made a significant investment in the configuration of its GAME platform for the Cannabis industry which it was unable to monetize within Fiscal 2019. TrackX responded to these challenges aggressively and effectively. We made the changes necessary to reduce our overall operating expense while remaining focused on the execution of our core strategies. With this focus and a stronger balance sheet resulting from the recent sale of the TrackX Yard Management business to FourKites, the Company is well positioned as it looks towards the future.”
Highlights Subsequent to the Fourth Quarter
- Sale of Yard Management business to FourKites
- Expansion of GAME within America’s second largest insurance company;
- Additional expansion within a global household appliance manufacturer;
- Vehicle inventory management for Polaris, a global powersports leader
- Resignation by Kevin Shea from the Board of TrackX; and
- Restructure of the Company’s sales efforts

In 2019, the Company expanded its solution footprint both in terms of capabilities and number of installed locations for many customers including Carvana, a large insurance customer, a large US baked snack food manufacturer, a global household appliance manufacturer and the world’s second largest processor and marketer of beef, pork and poultry. TrackX also continued to expand and leverage its partner network, generating additional leads and pipeline opportunities expected to drive additional revenue growth in 2020. TrackX restructured its sales organization and refined its sales efforts on larger and higher margin revenue opportunities in returnable asset tracking (i.e., food racks), high value asset tracking (i.e., IT asset tracking) and supply chain management. Continued focus in these areas will result in repeatable industry solutions that more effectively leverage GAME’s capability for business process automation, analytics and support of a wide array of IIOT devices. That focus helped to drive the Company’s recently announced strategic transaction with FourKites, the Chicago-based creator of the predictive supply chain visibility category, in which FourKites acquired the TrackX Yard Management business. The FourKites transaction will not only strengthen the Company’s balance sheet and create additional sales and marketing opportunities through FourKites’ expansive customer network, but will enable TrackX to further leverage its enterprise asset management platform on high margin SaaS-based solutions which are repeatable, have a short sales cycle, and require low operating overhead.
