Trackmatic started in December 2009 by David Slotow and has grown organically over the years.
The initial idea behind the solution was to provide visibility into the dark place that is known as Distribution. His vision was to provide an On-Road Execution™ management solution that would drive measurable change in organisations with their own fleet.
The solution was built from scratch with David at the centre of it, pushing innovation into the previously untouched areas of the distribution process. All hardware and software remain the IP of Trackmatic and every piece of the solution is manufactured and developed in South Africa.
Sol joined the company in mid-2010 as a funder, bringing years of experience into Trackmatic and assisting with the growth and management since.
The name Trackmatic comes from blending the two words “Tracking” and “Telematics”. When the company started, this was the core of the system and to a large part, remains so now.
Trackmatic has become more focused since inception and now fits into a very niche area of fleet management.
There are currently 26 full-time employees in the organisation that serves South Africa in general, with the Head Office based in Johannesburg. We have technicians based in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban and Port Elizabeth, who travel to the surrounding areas as well.
