Where to exhibit this year?

Would you describe the most effective way to increase sales and expand new markets? One would place emphasis on market analyses, product development, cost decrease and would be right in his own. Certainly, there’s a myriad of trusted ways, which may be of little value unless a customer has seen you in person.

Virtual sales are great factor, though personal communications are second-to-none to actually getting to know the players, who dominate the market. Therefore, a time-tested solution for all businesses would be to take part in exhibitions and get through to the customers directly.

The positive effect of product demonstration in public may and time-to-sale will depend on a range of factors, though must never be underrated!

Can Pay-as-you-drive survive in Russia?

Aliaksei Shchurko

Building a Smart System that would do the hard work for the auto insurers has grown out of a sole ambition, with some of the telematic players scoring really high on this market.

Compared to the progress of UBI in countries like Italy, UK and the US, Russia is yet making the timid steps towards it. Therefore, as a trendsetter and technology leader, Gurtam has decided to not stay apart.

Yesterday, together with over 100+ TSPs, hardware providers and insurance groups, Aliaksei Shchurko, Gurtam CEO, spoke at the 3rd International Conference on Smart Insurance held for the 2nd time this year.

5th Wialon Global Gathering, i.e. Telematics 2014. Minsk

Gurtam CEO Aliaksei Shchurko opens Telematics 2014. Minsk conferenceLess than a week ago, November 19-22, many Gurtam partners from different places all over the world visited Belarus and took part in the annual partner meeting Telematics 2014. Minsk. Gurtam conference today went far from a private event meant for a particular group of Wialon dealers and became a large international telematics playground for discussing key market trends.

Numbers speak louder than words. So, this year Telematics audience consisted of 160 partners, experts and GPS hardware manufacturers, who showcased their latest developments during two working days and presented all the advantages of different hardware to the numerous people involved. And by the way, the audience was huge and highly professional, because you won’t ever meet come-and-go people among Gurtam guests.

This year conference became not only a large-scale event, but also changed its usual format, presupposing consecutive presentations by Gurtam team members. Therefore, Telematics 2014. Minsk was more about networking in its very best sense. That’s why again I’d like to say thanks to all our partners and colleagues, who made this conference really unforgettable and extremely useful in terms of getting the full vision of modern telematics market. Thank you for your brilliant thoughts, fresh ideas and enthusiasm.

GITEX 2014: thousand and one nights of high tech

When you hear Dubai, you automatically imagine a fairytale city with astonishing skyscrapers in the center of wild desert, manmade islands, reminding the pattern of an Oriental carpet, noble Arabic men in white and mysterious women in black. And you’ll never forget Burj Khalifa — the tallest building in the world.
