Cartrack International has approximately 575,000 active subscribers worldwide and is growing at the rate of 15,000 new subscribers per month.
It’s a service based organisation with a strong focus on research and development, in-house design and manufacturers of its own hardware, and provides fleet, mobile asset and workforce management solutions underpinned by real-time actionable business intelligence, delivered as Software-as-a-Service (‘SaaS’).
Cartrack’s web based services interface across a multitude of different areas and are intuitive and easy to use. In addition, Cartrack is the first company able to provide the service of tracking and recovery of stolen vehicles with the support of a dedicated 24-hour control room
Earlier this year Cartrack International saw a huge opportunity to take their services to one of the largest fleet markets in the world – the USA. Industry experts have described Cartrack as having the potential to be a major disruptor in the market.
Said global CEO Zak Calisto: “Our technology has been proven over decades and our investment in research and development costs are well behind us. We have the ability to provide very competitive prices in the market that massively reduces telematic costs to our customers when compared to other providers.”
Cartrack NZ business development manager Shane Millar says the NZ market is no different.
“We have taken a good hard look at the market here, and while there are a number of existing operators, Cartrack NZ has in a very short time built a client base across various sectors of industry.
“The telematics industry in NZ provides the same opportunities that we are seeing around the world. Organisations from the private sector, SME, large corporate or government departments have varying requirements, and Cartrack International has worked alongside all of them, from international brands such as Michelin, Revlon, Man, Avis, Uber, Chevron and DHL.
“We bring custom specialisation to the NZ market and have the ability to turn things around quickly no matter how big or small the fleet is.
Shane said Cartrack would like to debunk the jargon and mystery surrounding the industry, stating:
“While our technology appears to be complicated, in essence it has been around for quite some time. It is quite a simple process, we get to know what the requirements are from our clients, understand it and deliver a service that meets their needs.
“We like to be proactive and provide options to help mitigate risks associated with the new workplace safety regulations. The good news is that we have already been doing this for many years in other jurisdictions and have developed a specialised health and safety reporting module that includes comprehensive driver score cards with built in alerts and a driver report for continuous hours driven”.
Cartrack has a full suite of products, from live tracking and location, geo-fence capability, driver behaviour alerts and a comprehensive list of reporting, to a full array of add on options such as Driver ID, fuel and refrigeration monitoring, electronic log books ,and a first for NZ, stolen vehicle recovery ,plus much more. Cartrack also provides products such as Communicator, its 4-1 task management tool, or MI Fleet, software for fleet compliance management.
What makes Cartrack different is the price point: Cartrack’s live tracking, location based services, along with trip reports and replay with web and smart phone access, start from as little as $14.95 per month.
