Tracker South Africa
Tracker is a vehicle tracking company who’s technology not only invented mainstream vehicle tracking in the United States in 1986 (through its partner, LoJack), but it is responsible for the recovery of more than 300 000 stolen and hijacked vehicles throughout the world.
History of tracker
Since Tracker South Africa was established in 1996, the company has recovered 66 651 stolen and hijacked vehicles which has resulted in over 12 380 arrests – the most, on either score, of any vehicle tracking company on the continent.
Following its merger with MobileData in 2007 (which brought the SkyTrax range of products into Tracker), the Tracker of today is a highly sophisticated technology company offering leading edge location based services and Fleet Monitoring/Telematics solutions to both individuals and companies throughout Southern Africa.
Tracker’s SVR technology is currently in use in 30 countries including the United Kingdom, France, Russia, Italy, Columbia, Brazil, Mexico and Argentina.
Tracker is also the only vehicle tracking company in South Africa to benefit from a formal partnership with the South African Police Service, having just won the partnership contract with the SAPS, to combat vehicle theft and hijacking for another five years. This means that Tracker South Africa’s recovery technology is fitted to some 1300 vehicles and some 50 aircraft ensuring that Tracker is not only able to operate with the ‘power of arrest’, but that it has the largest recovery arsenal in the country. The Tracker-SAPS partnership is widely considered the most successful private-public sector collaboration ever seen in South Africa.
Tracker’s technology is currently installed in 867 195 vehicles throughout South Africa – making it the largest vehicle tracking company on the continent.
