About Teletrac Navman

Our History

Teletrac Navman leverages 25 years of telematics experience to help customers enhance business performance and lower operating costs through solutions that improve fleet management. With 40,000 customers globally and 900 employees across the United States (U.S.), Europe and Asia Pacific, we have a deep understanding of the challenges faced by fleet managers worldwide.

Over the years, we’ve continually developed our fleet management technologies to help businesses meet these challenges. From early mobile navigation devices to ruggedised tracking solutions, electronic work diaries and fleet intelligence systems, our solutions have been at the forefront of telematics in Australia and New Zealand since we launched our first integrated tracking unit as Navman Wireless in 2006.

Recent Developments

In 2015 we launched DIRECTOR, a new GPS fleet management platform. The software provides customers with unparalleled workforce data and analysis. In the same year, we merged with GPS fleet tracking company Teletrac, Inc., to become one of the world’s largest telematics organisations. In 2016, we became Teletrac Navman and acquired Transtech Driven, further extending our transport compliance capabilities to help improve road safety.
