US group Trackimo set to launch operations in Bahrain

MANAMA, December 30, 2020

Trackimo, an American IoT solution provider that develops the world’s most compact and cost-effective tracking devices, has announced plans to expand its operations in Bahrain and across the region. 
Trackimo works with global mobile operators such as Verizon, Vodafone, Telcel, among several others that have already rolled-out its personal safety and asset tracking products for their customers. 
The company plans to build similar relationships with Batelco, and other operators in the region and replicate its international business model, said a top official.
"We are currently evaluating the distributors and very soon will be establishing our footprint in the region. We are determined to launch our global industry expertise in this region after having worked with some large mobile service providers in Europe, the US, and other parts of the world," remarked its CEO Shai Bar-lavi.
"For instance, Vodafone UK has expanded its consumer smart tech offering with the launch of smart GPS tracker, Curve. Basically, Curve allows users to stay connected to the people and things they love, sending them alerts and updates straight to their mobile from a distance," he stated.
The company specializes in developing trackers that work seamlessly indoors and outdoors, over a worldwide cloud-IoT system. Trackimo’s smart GPS (Global Positioning System), GSM, Wi-Fi trackers are purposed for personal, professional, industrial, and commercial use. 
The most successful Trackimo consumer IoT product launched recently was the Vodafone Curve Tracker, which was recognized by the Financial Times as ‘the best tracker ever’, noted Shai Bar-lavi. 
With 41 billion smart devices predicted by 2027, and the Internet of Things (IoT) sector forecast to grow annually by billions of dollars, the launch of such tracking devices emphasizes a telecom operator continued innovation through the creation of smart devices and digital experiences, connected by its mobile network. 
From monitoring the safety of loved ones to tracking expensive professional gear to industrial and commercial integrations, Trackimo addresses a broad spectrum of tracking and monitoring needs.
Tracking people, pets, luggage, shipments, drones, motorcycles, boats, cars, or remote-controlled objects, and many other sectors can immensely benefit from Trackimo’s seamless tracking technology, stated Shai Bar-lavi.
According to him, Trackimo products keep an eye on loved ones by alerting the guardian when the wearer leaves the safe zone/virtual fence or when the SOS button is pressed. 
"With drones enduring high susceptibility to theft and non-recovery, Trackimo empowers drone owners to track their drone crafts in a real time basis with its lightweight trackers that do not come in the way of the drone’s performance," he explained.
"On the B2B front, Trackimo's fleet management tracking solutions provide real-time asset monitoring and protection of high-value and remote assets, increasing accountability, efficiency, responsiveness, safety, and savings. Fleet operators can immensely benefit from GPS tracking devices to help reduce fuel costs and improve customer experience by decreasing response time through route optimization. Tracking devices further enable GCC fleet owners to reduce repair costs and increase profit margins,” added Shai Bar-lavi.
Among other devices, during Gitex, Trackimo launched an innovative solution for babies’ safety in cars, using Trackimo Universal 3G, one of the world’s smallest personal GPS trackers, that is connected with cushion-shaped sensor on the baby car-seat via Bluetooth. 
This product creates an extra level of safety for babies that are inadvertently left behind in cars. This super small tracking device which is only about 4 centimeters allows the owner to track anything from anywhere coupled with constant real-time tracking and worldwide coverage. This ensures that babies are safe all through their journey in any form of transportation, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
