Australia: Telstra has teamed up with fleet management provider, Securatrak, to offer business customers GPS tracking and management solutions for packages across the country.
Telstra director of M2M and partnerships, Mike Cihra, said the partnership with Securatrak would see Telstra be able to offer customers comprehensive GPS tracking and management solutions for fleets of any size and location.
Mike Cihra, added: “The GO6 tracking device and Checkmate reporting software allows businesses to monitor and manage each vehicle and driver in their fleet. Driver ID is available for businesses with pooled fleets and the system allows fleet managers to deliver improvements in a number of areas including fuel efficiency and worker safety.”
Securatrak managing director, Mark Holmes, said the partnership was an acknowledgment of the growing industry demand for GPS tracking solutions, and the product quality, support, functionality and price point the company could deliver.
“Fleet telematics was once a niche market but it has become an increasingly important technology for companies looking for better ways to monitor their fleet performance and wishing to ensure safety of their drivers – especially those who operate in isolation or in remote areas,”
Holmes said earlier this month Telstra reached the milestone of one million services in operation in its M2M business. Cihra said that success has been underpinned by partnerships. “Building our M2M business has meant building great partnerships with solution providers, systems integrators, and hardware providers, as well as a number of referral partners spanning a range of industries, including transport, logistics, utilities, security, finance, retail, agriculture, and healthcare,” he said.
