Wialon, the global telematics and IoT platform created by European software developer Gurtam, has reached a record 3.5 million units connected, across over 150 countries. Wialon is the largest fleet management platform in the world by number of connected vehicles and other assets.
Working worldwide through a network of more than 2,400 partners, which include telematics service providers and solutions developers, Wialon connects and tracks vehicles and assets ranging from cargo and passenger vehicle fleets, special machinery, as well as stationary units, including generators and fuel storage units.
The 3.500.000-th vehicle connected via the Wialon platform is one of a fleet of ambulances in West Africa, where Wialon partner Geoloc Conseil ensures efficient dispatching of ambulances and fuel management.
Founded in 2012, Geoloc Conseil has been a Wialon partner since 2016. The company predominantly operates in France and West Africa, serving transport, construction, express courier, and service companies. It specialises in the development of geolocation software, with a focus on professional vehicle fleet management and geolocation.
“We have been working with Wialon since 2016, when a simple internet search led us to the solution for fuel tracking and monitoring machine hours. The first major project involved geolocation and fuel monitoring for a large fleet of trucks and construction machinery in Africa, and we saw very positive outcomes thanks to Wialon. Seven years on, we’re proud to have connected the 3,500,000th vehicle on the platform. Innovative, reliable and user-friendly technology solutions on Wialon base play a key role in enabling and accelerating business growth in Africa,” says Francois Traoré, Managing Director Geoloc Conseils.
Using the Wialon platform and its fleet management software solutions, Wialon’s over 2,400 partners – telematics service providers and solutions developers – have deployed applications in a broad range of markets and sectors: transportation and mobility, logistics, delivery services, construction, agribusiness, water and waste management, public utilities, railway, mining and processing, and security. They work in Europe, USA, Canada, Latin America, Middle East, Africa, Australia, and Central Asia.
With over 20 years of experience, Wialon has developed integrations with nearly 2,900 types of GPS tracking devices from 700 manufacturers, including automobile controllers, personal trackers and software-based trackers installed as mobile apps on smartphones. Additionally, Wialon is able to process data received from after-market sensors (weight, humidity, light, temperature and others), cameras, tachograph and supplementary GPS hardware, connected to GPS tracking devices.
“Telematics and IoT applications are now ubiquitous for fleet management, and we are very proud of Wialon’s contribution to the growth of the ecosystem of global partners, developers, and clients. Connecting 3.5 million units is a significant milestone for us, making Wialon the largest global telematics and IoT platform by number of connected vehicles and other assets worldwide,” says Aliaksandr Kuushynau, Head of Wialon at Gurtam.
