Back in 2010 I was asked by our MD to look at alternative suppliers of vehicle tracking devices for our small fleet of vehicles which included small vans, pick-ups, 7.5 tonne lorries and Heavy Goods Vehicles. I searched the internet for suppliers and one of the most interesting to me was a relatively new company SATMO.
I contacted the owner Gary Thompson who came to our offices and showed me what SATMO was all about. Cutting edge technology, friendly prompt service, a one stop shop for all issues and a price point that was extremely keen. So keen in fact that other more established suppliers said to me “they can’t do it for that price, it is impossible”. I trusted Gary, having met with him on several more occasions, and engaged with the company for 12 vehicles initially.
I can tell you without prejudice that “they could do it at the price” and more importantly have been doing it ever since. I took the all-inclusive 3 year tracking option where all upgrades and data are free of charge and you only pay to have units moved from one vehicle to another if required. At the end of the 3 years, we transferred the existing units to an even cheaper option of data only, whilst all new vehicles are put on the 3 year all-inclusive offer.
We now have 18 vehicles from a towable cable winch up to 8 wheeler grab lorries and volumetric concrete lorries tracked by SATMO. We receive excellent service from a very pleasant workforce. Problems, of which there are very few, are dealt with very promptly and the price is still right. The system of tracking is very simple to monitor online and is available to as many managers as you like. The speed of updates for vehicle whereabouts is very impressive and still way ahead of the industry standard I believe.
Give them a try – you will not regret it.
