Heritage

The listing of MiX Telematics on the JSE marked the birth of a new global leader in the vehicle tracking and fleet management industry. The company’s success is a culmination of numerous business wins, innovative leadership, focused expertise and strategic decisions which have yielded the desired results.

The business started out in South Africa in 1995 as Matrix Vehicle Tracking, a consumer-facing business focused on superior vehicle recovery and personal safety. Services were delivered using cutting edge GSM–based tracking technology.

Matrix soon became one of the leading vehicle tracking and stolen vehicle recovery service providers in South Africa, and the first to emphasise the safety of the individual as opposed to focusing solely on the vehicle – a value that the company still applies today. While Matrix Vehicle Tracking was growing its consumer base in South Africa, another South African business known as Omnibridge was gaining significant ground in the international commercial fleet management market. Omnibridge, which was originally founded as CI Fleet Management, was responsible for the design and development of the VDO Fleet Manager (FM) product range. This product was eventually sold by Siemens worldwide.

In May 2007, Omnibridge acquired the distribution rights for its Fleet Manager product range from Siemens VDO, while simultaneously acquiring Siemens VDO’s UK-based fleet management and commercial vehicle outfitting businesses, which included the Datatrak product range and network. In 2007, Matrix Vehicle Tracking acquired Omnibridge, which led to the merger of these two businesses and went on to list on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange.

Given the company’s vision to become the leading global provider of information and related services for mobile assets, the decision was made to rebrand as MiX Telematics in early 2008.

The new brand captured the core of the business by combining ‘Mobile Information Exchange’ and telematics expertise. It enables all business aspects, past and present, to come together and adopt a shared vision and philosophy.
