From humble beginnings in 2004, Cartrack has become a dominant force to be reckoned with in the vehicle tracking and telematics industry. This entrepreneurial spirit has positioned the company enhancing and allowing expansion in many facets of its offerings, shaping and driving the recovery and tracking landscape across the world.
Starting in the vehicle recovery industry, Cartrack became a leader in Telematics and vehicle tracking. Thanks to the advances in technology, such as moving from pure GPS to satellite tracking, and the addition of telematics solutions to tracking devices, Cartrack is able to do so much more for fleet owners and managers.
The telematics solutions allow for the high-speed transfer of data such as fuel usage, speed, routes and of course, location of vehicles anytime, anywhere. Through analysis of this data, the fleet manager is able to see where his vehicles’ inefficiencies are and make positive changes to that will have a real effect on ROI - the bottom line of the business.
Taking this one step further, Cartrack supplies that this same level of detail and data to private clients, who use their cars in a more personal capacity. Whether it’s a dad driving to work, a uni student driving to school, or a mom driving the kids around, the family has access to data that saves them money, finds better routes and monitors their driving habits.
Another Cartrack feature that is available for both commercial and private clients is crash detection technology. The device picks up on sudden changes in acceleration or gravity that could indicate impact or loss of control, and alerts the Cartrack control room. Here, a highly trained agent calls the emergency contact for that vehicle, ascertains the severity of the incident and dispatches the necessary assistance. If there’s no answer to the call, emergency assistance is dispatched to the vehicle’s last recorded location.
The real advantage of the Cartrack service is the App, available for both Android and iOS phones. The App puts the power of commercial data right into the hands of the personal contract owner, all at the touch of a button. In addition to the above detail and statistics, the app also provides safety and assistance features designed to put the user in complete control of their vehicle’s mobility.
These features include CarWafatch which alerts you to the unauthorised movement of your car, Protector which is our app-based emergency assistance service, and exclusive deals on tyres and insurance quotes.
At the speed at which technology convergence is taking place, coupled the company’s entrepreneurial spirit, there is no doubt that Cartrack will continue to develop innovative solutions for all our clients’ needs, from here to well into the future.
