MiX Telematics will use ManageNet to increase efficiency

Wireless Logic in telematics win

International telematics company, MiX Telematics, has outsourced its UK base of Sims to Wireless Logic.

The move is aimed at improving control over usage and to cut connection costs. The company is now able to analyse the performance, procurement and activation of its Sim base.

MiX Telematics provides fleet management solutions, including vehicle tracking and stolen vehicle recovery, using predominantly Orange Sim cards, embedded within the company’s range of on-board computers. Procurement of Sims for its estate via the network operator involved a cumbersome ordering and activation process.

Marketing director Steve Coffin said: ‘As our customers and the number of mobile assets we protect increased, we realised our Sim procurement, management and security model had to change. Each Sim had to be ordered and activated manually, which meant potential delays before we could deploy a unit; we now use SIMPRO, which allows us to automatically order and activate Sims ourselves.

‘Our clients also required the security and reliability of a private APN. Wireless Logic’s APN complements our own Datatrak network by offering the reliability and security of fixed IP connectivity.’

MiX Telematics is now using Wireless Logic’s ManageNet platform to extract a deeper level of performance and behaviour data, enabling them to make significant cost savings via usage reduction and streamlining, and opening the door to the development of a new generation of ‘smart’ products in 2010.
