Amongst the many advantages of vehicle tracking devices, the one that stands out most is that of peace of mind knowing that should something happen to your vehicle, it can be located and recovered.

Having been in the market for over 15 years, Cartrack has seen the rise of tracking devices as well as the advances made in the field, from pure tracking to the provision of sophisticated telematics and mobility solutions. The company has become a global leader in the industry offering the best, most technologically advanced tracking devices, designed for both individual and commercial clients.

For the private individual, vehicle tracking devices with live tracking functionality is a great way to keep an eye on loved ones and precious possessions. This functionality is often provided via an internet enabled app on a smartphone or computer.

Cartrack’s app now even features a trip share function so that people at your destination can follow your journey and know when to expect you. This is a great safety feature as it reduces time waiting in driveways, or at gates where a large majority of hold-ups and hijackings occur.

Another advantage to the tracking device is geofencing. This allows you to set up no-go-areas, specially for your older teenagers who are just finding their party feet, or au pairs who look after your children, or anyone who uses your vehicles. Once established, the device will alert you when the vehicle enters a no-go-area, and you can take the necessary action. So, you can let your teen have the car and still keep a watch on their every move.

Of course, stolen vehicle recovery remains at the heart of a vehicle tracking device and with a 92% recovery rate, Cartrack leads the world in ensuring that stolen vehicles, and even goods, are returned. And we’ve just added another layer of trust by raising our recovery warranty to R1 Million – the first tracking company ever to put this much skin in the game.

In addition to vehicle tracking and recovery, insurance providers also use the advanced telematics in the device to provide driving and vehicle stats. This helps them reduce premiums where possible, and provide a better risk assessment for their clients. Several insurance firms even use the stats to reward the good driving behaviour of their clients.

 From a commercial perspective, vehicle tracking has proven hugely effective in improving workforce efficiency. Through Cartrack’s super-powerful, web-based software that includes an administration and accounting element, fleet owners and managers can, amongst other functions:

  • Pinpoint the exact location of their vehicles
  • Determine how long trips should take
  • Redefine routes for better delivery
  • Improve driver habits and behaviour
  • Keep an eye on the administrative aspect of running a fleet
  • Ensure proper fuel usage
  • Reduce misuse of the vehicles

Cartrack’s host of tracking and telematics features and services are designed to work as stand-alone options or as part of the vehicle eco-system, all based on the tracking device in the vehicle and the incredible software in our arsenal.
