TRACKER harnesses M2M technology for stolen vehicle recovery service

New partnership with M2M specialist Wireless Logic will provide a range of enhanced fleet telematics and vehicle tracking products

TRACKER harnesses M2M technology for stolen vehicle recovery service

TRACKER, the stolen vehicle recovery (SVR) and fleet telematics expert, has joined forces with Wireless Logic, a leading European M2M (machine-to-machine) managed services specialist to enhance the efficiency of TRACKER’s product range.  

Through its partnership with Wireless Logic, TRACKER will benefit from a tailored suite of mobile connectivity services providing specialist M2M SIMs from multiple networks. TRACKER’s SVR and fleet telematic solutions will be further enhanced by Wireless Logic’s ‘SIMpro3’ platform-as-a-service (PaaS) enabling provisioning, monitoring and complete real-time visibility across TRACKER’s growing SIM estate. 

Oliver Tucker, managing director for the Wireless Logic Group said: ‘Wireless Logic brings to the table a growing choice of connectivity solutions which will deliver new levels of flexibility for TRACKER’s solutions, as well as tailored tariffs and management control. Additionally, TRACKER will have access to our multi-network private APNs. This will significantly decrease capital expenditure on infrastructure, and will be supported by our dedicated account team which will manage TRACKER’s ongoing connectivity requirements.’ 

The move to Wireless Logic, which has established a ‘one-stop-source’ for managed connectivity, is central to the constant advancement of TRACKER Fleet, TRACKER’s re-engineered fleet tracking solution and more recently the launch of its Mesh Network, which acts as listening device to identify stolen vehicles.  

Relaunched in 2011, TRACKER Fleet uses unique technology to detect accurate idling readings and monitor driver performance, thereby offering layers of information about the vehicle and driver. The flexible reporting suite can be tailored to the needs of each customer, helping to improve customer care and enhance driver safety. With detailed information at the click of a button, TRACKER helps customers reduce costs and improve fleet efficiency. 

TRACKER’s Mesh Network creates an added defence against vehicle theft by using other vehicles already fitted with TRACKER SVR units to detect stolen vehicles fitted with TRACKER, therefore creating its very own social network. 

‘This new strategic partnership with Wireless Logic gives TRACKER unrivalled specialist support across the entire spectrum of M2M connectivity and  related managed services. Our entire SIM estate will now be enhanced by greater visibility, giving us new levels of control, provisioning and tariff management. Importantly, it will enable us to focus more intently on the continued development of TRACKER’s market leading telematics and SVR solutions,’ said Stephen Doran, managing director of TRACKER.  

‘We need to have complete confidence in mobile connectivity,’ he continued. ‘This partnership will give us resilient cost-effective data solutions and one point access to the UK’s and Europe’s primary network providers. This means a more efficient service to our customers, tailored functionality and a premium quality of information.’
