Agreement allows service provider to sell the firm’s tracking solution straight to its customers
Lone worker and tracking provider itrack Protect has signed a supply agreement with Azzurri Communications to sell the solution to its enterprise customers.
The agreement, which was signed in November, enables Azzurri, which currently has 500 managed customers, to sell the solution directly.
Itrack Protect utilises both GPS and GSM technology that can operate with the majority of mobile phone handsets. It enables a host user to view the location of sta instantly via a Java-based web portal installed on a laptop or desktop computer.
It is used by a number of UK police agencies, oil companies and news corporations to provide protection to lone workers who could find themselves in difficult situations.
Azzurri customers will be able to pick and choose as to what tracking capabilities they want from the itrack product such as lone worker protection or individual tracking.
The Azzurri deal last month resulted in an agreement with a large debt collection agency for 150 fully featured itrack Protect user licences for an ongoing period of time. Each licence costs £20 a month to use.
The agreement includes individual tracking, lone worker protection capabilities, both of which can be integrated with Google Earth and Google Streetview, enabling employers to see exactly where workers are.
Itrack Protect sales director David Hinc (pictured) said the Azzurri partnership would increase sales dramatically.
“Azzurri is a heavyweight player in the converged market and a major partner to have on board. They have hundreds of loyal customers so it’s a good opportunity for us,” he said.
The Azzurri deal follows an agreement itrack Protect reached with Virgin Atlantic in October for the airline to sell a consumer version of the software on all 37 of its international flights.
