In late March, Gurtam team is leaving for Germany to take part in CeBIT 2017 which will mark our seventh consecutive year attending the ICT trade show. The annual event is taking place from March 20 to March 24 at Deutsche Messe in Hannover, Germany. In the exhibition halls, 3000 companies from 70 nations will present real-life application scenarios, and a small army of startups will profile their disruptive business models.
It’s been one year since we launched the new Gurtam office in Dubai. Before we start celebrating the anniversary, let’s look back and remember those efforts done in 2016 for strengthening Wialon positions in the Middle East: new ambitious integrators in the Gulf Wialon community, the unique opportunity for Gurtam employees to try hand in the art of sales in Dubai, a lot of challenging projects implemented, participation in major local industry events, release of solutions designed for the local market – we’ve done our best to build trust in Wialon throughout the Arabian Peninsula. In just one year!
The new year starts with new enhancements. We’re happy to announce that Logistics order management service has been greatly improved! Gurtam released the service a year ago, and since then Logistics has become very popular among Wialon users. We considered all your reviews and suggestions left on Gurtam forum and implemented the best ones in the new service version. Let us introduce Logistics 1.8.
January has been very productive for us in terms of advancing Wialon GPS tracking and fleet management system. Gurtam developers have been continuously working upon new Wialon Hosting features, and it’s high time we shared the results. Probably, many of you have already tested the new functionality in Wialon Hosting beta-version. We’d like to thank active and involved Wialon users for their feedback which helped us update the stable Wialon Hosting version with really in-demand and thoroughly tested features. Let us introduce Wialon Hosting 1701.
Two years have passed since the first version of Wialon mobile client was released to ensure non-stop tracking from anywhere globally. Since then we’ve achieved significant results: 17 interface languages, 61 000 active users and 100 000+ downloads! The success is determined by constant product development and enhancement.
The International Women’s Day is the time to make surprises. We have an idea of a great present for your soulmate or yourself – a trip to the UAE. So take decision, pack your bags and make your way to the charming deserts and endless beaches of Dubai and Gurtam team will meet you there!
In March Gurtam is heading for Mexico to participate in Expo Seguridad Mexico – the largest exhibition in the area of Industrial Safety and Occupational Health. Participating in the event for the 3rd time, we’re focused on continuing to provide partners in the region with the best platform to help them effectively compete in GPS tracking and fleet management space. Due to establishing the new office in Latin America, we’ll ensure our local clients get as much support and attention as they need to effectively deliver Wialon-based telematics solutions to their end-user customers.
Сonsidering the positive dynamics in the region, opening the new Gurtam office in Argentina and the vast number of partners in Latin America, we decided to hold the 2nd partner event in Mexico City the day before Expo Seguridad.
Children safety is a top priority for parents. Unfortunately, only a few can afford to drive children to school or to pick them up after classes. Therefore, school buses are becoming a more preferable, yet not the safest type of commuting for a number of regions. With safety issues requiring more and more attention from city municipalities in various regions, our partners are coming up with a cure. To ensure child safety today, Wialon-based school bus tracking systems are coming to the fore.
