UK vehicle-monitoring company Tracker has announced a new partnership with Wireless Logic, an M2M managed services specialist.

The partnership will give Tracker a number of mobile connectivity services, providing specialist M2M SIMs from multiple networks.

Tracker’s SVR and fleet telematic solutions will be further enhanced using Wireless Logic’s ‘SIMpro3’ platform-as-a-service (PaaS), giving Tracker complete real-time visibility across its growing SIM estate.

Tracker claims the partnership is another example of its willingness to invest in technology that can improve its range of products.

“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,” said Oliver Tucker, managing director for the Wireless Logic Group, in a statement. “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’s on-going connectivity requirements.”

The collaboration with Wireless Logic will have particular benefits for Tracker Fleet, Tracker’s re-engineered fleet tracking solution, as well as Mesh Network, a recently launched listening device used to identify stolen vehicles.

Relaunched in 2011, Tracker Fleet detects accurate idling readings and monitors driver performance, offering detailed information about vehicles and drivers.

“This new strategic partnership with Wireless Logic gives Tracker unrivalled specialist support across the entire spectrum of M2M connectivity and related managed services,” said Stephen Doran, the managing director of Tracker. “Our entire SIM estate will now be enhanced by greater visibility, giving us new levels of control, provisioning and tariff management.”
