New Wireless Logic partnership drives launch of enhanced fleet telematics and vehicle tracking products

TRACKER, the stolen vehicle recovery (SVR) and fleet telematics expert, has joined forces with Wireless Logic, Europe’s leading M2M (machine to machine) managed services specialist, enhancing 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.

TRACKER’s partnership with Wireless Logic is another example of its ongoing investment in technology, which will drive forward the development of its award-winning products. Oliver Tucker, Managing Director for the Wireless Logic Group comments:   “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’songoing 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 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 Networkcreates 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.” says Stephen Doran, Managing Director of TRACKER.  “We need to have complete confidence in mobile connectivity; 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.

“We look forward to working closely with Wireless Logic to help us develop a new generation of SVR solutions and fleet telematics, as part of TRACKER’s strategic growth in new and existing markets.”
