Government-owned telecommunications company TelOne has launched a new vehicle tracking and fleet management system dubbed TelTrack.
The system will be used to provide tracking services for all government vehicles, ICT, Postal and Courier Services minister Jenfan Muswere has revealed.
TelTrack will help users to get insights on their vehicles at any given time, including information about the locations of vehicles, driving behavior and fuel management.
“This certainly makes this a very useful product even for the Government with its thousands of vehicles.
“I am therefore pleased to announce that as part of government efforts to improve efficiency, and under the guidance of the Ministry, TelOne has partnered with CMED in providing this very service for the management of the government’s national fleet,” Muswere said.
“The tracking units for this system are being installed daily on our national fleet to boost efficiencies and come up with valuable digital data that is being used to effectively manage the government vehicles. I am also told that this product has been embraced by a number of our councils and other private players”.
TelOne managing director, Chipo Mtasa said the new product was part of the company’s diversification from the provision of voice and data services and was developed in partnership with a South African company.
“Together with our partners, CarTrack, who are the original equipment manufacturers out of South Africa, we are already tracking vehicles for several key players in our economy,” Mtasa said.
TelOne recently returned to profitability with a $142 million operating profit announced at their AGM last month.
