About Quartix - vehicle tracking expertise
The Quartix system has been installed in over 80,000 vehicles.
Quartix was founded in 2001 by four industry professionals who had a combined 80+ years (but who's counting!) experience in systems design, telemetry, embedded computing, communications and database design and implementation.
They felt that there was an opportunity for a system that made more extensive use of the tools and resources that are readily available on the Internet. Using the best in mapping systems, location databases, communications technology and Internet service providers Quartix set out to create a system that was easier to use than those on the market. This also brought the benefit of ensuring that the system would be accessible from standard browser and e-mail programs. There's no need for any changes to the user's set up, no dedicated machines, no software installation - if you have Internet access, you have everything you need.
Customer acceptance of the system has been excellent since then. Quartix now has more than 5000 customers, and the success of the company has been recognised by a number of prestigious business and product awards, including the Fleet News Reader Recommended Award for 5 years running (2009-2013). The features of the system which are most commonly praised by users are:
Ease of access through the Internet from anywhere - whether at home, work, or even at a customer's premises for a demonstration.
Speed and ease of use - simple-to-use web access and controls making the system extremely simple to use. In most cases customers find that the e-mail report service is all they need.
No hidden costs - as there are no software or hardware systems to manage at your location, there are no hidden costs of maintenance - nor are there annual software licences or charges.
Service - unlike many other systems, we manage the data and deliver reports to you - either by making them available on our web site or sending them by e-mail. You already have the software that's required.
Price - we want to deliver just what you need, and no unnecessary extra features. By keeping our costs low, we aim to provide you with a superior level of service at a competitive price.
