Beneficial partnership will provide fuel and maintenance cost savings to small and medium-sized enterprises

Vehicle tracking and fleet management solutions specialist Ctrack, a subsidiary of Novatel Wireless, Inc. (NASDAQ: MiFi), today announced that they have partnered with the National Small Business Chamber (NSBC) to become its corporate partner for its membership base of 101 000 small and medium-sized enterprises (SME’s).

Ctrack’s affordable business fleet tracking offers a leading solution that will give SME’s the edge in managing their mobile assets and workforce whereabouts.

“Ctrack recognises the pressures that are put on SME’s in South Africa today. We are proud to partner with the NSBC and have committed to providing preferential rates to its members with discounts of up to 20%,” said Pierre Bruwer, MD of Ctrack SA.

“Whilst our tracking products give business owners full visibility of their work vehicles and vans from our web-based applications, we also give the means of monitoring the way they are driven. This has a significant effect on fuel and maintenance cost savings, enabling you to run a more cost-effective and efficient fleet,” added Bruwer.

The NSBC is a non-profit membership organisation and the driving force fuelling small business growth. The real purpose behind the organisation is fostering the sustainability and growth of the SME sector, driving job creation, alleviating unemployment and nurturing the country’s entrepreneurial spirit. It has become the largest organisation of its kind in Africa and one of the fastest growing organisations of its kind in the world.

Said Mike Anderson, founder and CEO of NSBC: “With meaningful partners like Ctrack, small businesses have the potential to breathe new life into the South African economy. Providing as much support to small businesses as possible is an investment in our communities and South Africa’s collective economic future.”

Ctrack will be attending the My Business Expo hosted by the NSBC on 10 March at the Gallagher Convention Centre, Midrand. Visit us at Stand A28.
