State-of-the-art telematics solution

GPS4NET is for over a decade involved in the research, development and production of various telematics solution and today has extensive experience in technologies such as GPS, GSM, short-range radio microwave communication, telematics, and mission critical hardware applications. Since 2003 GPS4NET has developped higly reliable devices for GPS tracking application along with an advances AVL server platform designed for a wide range of Fleet Management business applications.Thus today we stand on the market with a turning-key telematics solution made from hardware, software and GIS, fully integrated and supported.

Since the begining GPS4NET was comited to evolve a very well integrated solution, where the elements should be fully supported over the time and backward compatible. After many years since were sold the first GPS trackers, the AVL platform still support and fully serving the old products. Each evolution of the hardware platform was based on the same RTOS designed for full portability and scalability over the various models of hardware advertised on the market. Today our latest firmware runs outstanding on the old hardware made years a go but now discontinued from production. Thus GPS4NET stands as a mark of excelence, reliability, and stability in the telematics industry, who has created own elements and way of success.

Core Values: Reliability, Quality and Customer Orientation

GPS4NET is well known for its four core values that play a key role in ensuring the distributor's success: business scalability, ease of integration, investment protection, and high quality.
