Motor dealers face two on-going theft problems - theft from the showroom forecourt and theft of demonstration vehicles whilst on test drives.
Dealers would like to fit a tracking system into each of the demonstration vehicles and to the front row of those on the forecourt, but due to the high turnover of stock, they just cannot afford the installation and removal cost (and time) of conventional wired tracking systems.
Manufacturers need to track vehicles through the plant and whilst on the car-carrier en route to the dealers.
Other common issues include:
- Difficult to locate vehicles within premises
- Managing and tracking car carriers and individual vehicles on car carriers
- Tracking vehicle deliveries
- Managing driver behaviour of sales reps, delivery drivers etc...
- Customer service delivery
How can Mtrack assist?
- Traditional forms of security have largely failed (GPS tracking, wheel locks, alarm systems, etc) as they are easy to detect and disable.
- Mtrack is the only self-powered, wireless device that enables tracking and recovery of vehicles and assets throughout the country, using a combination of GSM and RF technology.
- Mtrack needs no installation, has no wires or aerials and therefore can be moved from vehicle to vehicle in a matter of seconds
- No interference with vehicle wiring harnesses – no risk to vehicle warranties. If the vehicle battery is tampered with, Mtrack is unaffected.
- Mtrack is more reliable than conventional systems as it can work both indoors and out, even in basements, with no need to see the GPS satellites in the sky above.
- Mtrack also does not require other devices in order to report.
- Mtrack can be installed covertly into virtually any asset requiring protection.
- If a car is on a test drive and the sales person is ejected from the vehicle, the Mtrack can be activated by the control room and the vehicle can then be tracked and recovered.
- Movement sensor capability.
- Unpredictable behaviour to criminals.
- Daily health checks.
Mtrack is the most successful recovery device in the world. Our 12 year rolling average recovery rate is 97%!
