Cartrack wins prestigious MTN Business IoT (Internet of things) award
MTN awarded Cartrack the coveted Business IoT (Internet of Things) Partner award at their partnership summit in Johannesburg last month, confirming Cartrack as a leader in innovation and technology in the telematics industry.
MTN is becoming the centre of an advanced business ICT ecosystem, incorporating vendors and service providers throughout Africa, into a single ecosystem.
Valued partners play a critical role in MTN’s business growth and they believe the new Partner Programme is a win-win proposition.
Cartrack and MTN will be in a strong position to jointly target lucrative opportunities and grow businesses together, by the development of a thriving ICT services ecosystem under the MTN banner.
The new Partnership Programme will also step up the focus on collaborative engagement, joint development and go-to-market strategies, offering a range of benefits and support services, including a Partner Advisory Council, Partner Account Managers, an online Partner Hub for training and marketing collateral, and a keen focus on special partner events including the annual Partner Summit, quarterly Partner Roadshows and the Partner Awards to bring collaborators together to learn and network.
With Cartrack recently surpassing the impressive milestone of 550k active subscribers in the territories it operates in, it is no surprise that MTN awarded Cartrack with the sought-after IoT Partner award. It is estimated that Cartrack now ranks among the top ten telematics companies globally.
John Edmeston – Global CFO and Deputy CEO says:
“Innovation lies at the key of our business and it’s vital to the success thereof – to this end we ensure that we are constantly developing new technologies that take into account the learnings from all the countries we operate in. This keeps us globally relevant in both hardware and services”
Since its launch to the market in South Africa in 2004, Cartrack has evolved from a stolen vehicle recovery (SVR) organisation, to a leading global provider of telematics solutions for mobile asset tracking and related data management, through the use of Software-as-a-service (Saas) as its delivery model. Cartrack has built its reputation based on quality value added services and achieving rapid, sustainable growth and profitability, culminating in its successful listing on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange in 2014.
