Dunedin based tracking company TracPlus Global announced today that it has secured a number of significant international contracts that continue the companyâ€™s global success.
Following on from their success in being selected by the National Aerial Firefighting Centre (NAFC) as the exclusive integration provider for airborne fire fighting in Australia, the company has secured significant tracking and integration contracts in North America, as well as establishing strong market channels into South America. “It’s been a good couple of months” said Stuart Campbell, CEO of TracPlus Global.
A major Canadian hydroelectric company has selected TracPlus Global to integrate tracking data from over 150 contracted helicopters that are using different tracking systems.
â€œInstead of having to mandate a single tracking solution to their contractors, or having to decode tracking data from half a dozen different tracking providers, our customer can now see all their contracted assets on a single TracPlus screen. This has revolutionized the way in which they are monitoring and managing their subcontractors, as well as a dramatic improvement in meeting their occupational safety and health obligations.â€ Campbell continued. Health and safety requirements and operational efficiencies have also led a major Californian gas and electric company to equip their field engineers and contractors with TracPlus’ SHOUT, a hand held tracking and global messaging device. Similarly, one of the worldâ€™s largest mining companies has begun providing their key personnel operating in the worldâ€™s remotest regions with the SHOUT as a company requirement.
Meanwhile, Queensland Volunteer Coast Guard Australia has followed in the steps of Coastguard New Zealand in choosing TracPlus Global as their sole tracking provider.
â€œThese recent successes are not by chance. They are the result of years of hard graft by our talented team to develop our unique product, and the global market is now sitting up and taking notice. These contracts show that our customers are embracing the significant value that our focus on interoperability brings to an otherwise proprietary and segmented market,â€ said Campbell. But the international award winning company acknowledges that it is probably better known off shore than it is at home. â€œWe understand that weâ€™ve been a bit of a quiet achiever, and people are often quite surprised to find a New Zealand based company is leading the way in this very competitive global market.â€ But commercial success doesnâ€™t mean that TracPlus has been sitting still. In fact, far from it.
“We are in the final stages of testing the next generation of our product â€“ TracPlus 2.0. This represents a major leap forward in our technology and capability, and for the first time brings together multi-asset, multiview, multi-track and multi-map capabilities that our corporate and emergency services customers have been demanding into a single, easy to use application” revealed Campbell who also reported an overwhelming response from those who had seen the closely guarded application.
â€œWe are looking forward to a nationwide product launch tour before Christmas. We are especially delighted that New Zealand emergency services, including Rescue Coordination Centre of New Zealand (RCCNZ), Coastguard New Zealand and St John will be amongst the first in the world to have access to this leading technology.â€
The company has also been a strong supporter of extreme adventurers and has tracked multiple successful world record attempts, including Trans Tasman kayakers James Castrission and Justin Jones, Earthrace, Tasman rower Sean Quincey, round the world yachtswoman Jessica Watson and helicopter pilots Scott Kasprowicz and Steve Sheik.
TracPlus Global is currently supporting The Ultimate Ride jet ski team making their way from London to Auckland to raise Cancer Awareness.
Boeing 747 pilot Jeremy Burfoot and his support team will ride across the English Channel, through the waterways of Europe, across the Black and Red Seas, through the Suez Canal, across the Bay of Bengal and Timor Seas, to Sydney and then across the Tasman Sea to finally arrive in Auckland â€“ a trip of over 32,000 kilometers in five months, almost doubling the current jet ski distance record.
