Global success for SA company

MiX Telematics – established in South Africa in 1996 – has just announced a partnership with Navistar

MiX Telematics is a South African company that has really gone places. Listed on both the Johannesburg Stock Exchange and the New York Stock Exchange, it was the first telematics company ever to lead the All Share Index in 2018, along with Anglo American. Apart from its local head office, the company has offices in the United Kingdom, the United States, Uganda, Brazil, Australia, Mexico and the United Arab Emirates.

Now, through their new partnership, MiX and Navistar plan to provide mutual customers with an enhanced and comprehensive combined data set. Customers’ and manufacturers’ reliance on telematics data has evolved over the past few years in terms of pursuing better uptime and improved repair support. Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) such as Navistar embed telematics hardware into their vehicles at the point of manufacture to remotely understand and analyse fault codes and usage once out in the field.

“We are excited to announce this new partnership with MiX Telematics. It enables Navistar to create even greater value for customers by enabling seamless access to our industry-leading remote diagnostics solutions and MiX Telematics’ powerful fleet management and compliance solutions through one factory-installed device,” says Matthew Milewski, Navistar Connected Vehicle marketing director.

Furthermore, by leveraging OEM hardware, MiX Telematics is uniquely globally positioned, in over 120 countries, to provide a richer, seamless experience for its customers. Through the partnership with Navistar, MiX will harness vehicle data streams that will be ingested into MiX’s extensive platform and application services.

“Our partnership with Navistar entrenches our vision to provide our customers with the best telematics information and service in the industry. We are excited to be working with Navistar to provide our mutual customers with access to a richer information set that in turn will help them to improve the management of their fleet operations at any time,” says Charles Tasker, MiX Telematics chief operating officer.
