Technology

With more than 1.1 million connected vehicles, over 1,600 staff members and more than 23 years’ experience in the vehicle tracking and telematics industry, Tracker is the largest telematics company in Africa and the third largest in the world.

Most people see Tracker as a Stolen Vehicle Recovery (SVR) company, and while it is still at the core of their business, they have evolved significantly since their birth in 1996.  Through a culture of continuous innovation driven by one of the most experienced and dynamic teams, Tracker has built a reputation far beyond its SVR roots which has cemented its position as the leading provider of telematics solutions to an automotive ecosystem which includes OEMs, Dealers, Insurers, Fleet Operators and Consumers.
