MTN Ghana launches vehicle tracking
MOBILE| March 1, 2012, noon
MTN Ghana has launched a vehicle tracking service.
MTN’s new vehicle tracking service, Trackmaster, ensures that vehicle owners can monitor the whereabouts of their vehicles 24/7. Designed for individual car owners, fleet owners and even personal tracking, the service uses sophisticated GPS tracking products to deliver accurate location readings.
The service uses tracking devices installed at accredited dealers, and allows car owners to log on to www.trackmaster.com.gh to locate their vehicles, monitor the speed at which they are travelling and even preset warning notices for when a vehicle leaves a defined geographical area. Users can also generate statistic reports to monitor vehicle and fleet movements, driven distance, fuel consumption and work time.
MTN Ghana CEO Michael Ikpoki says installation of the tracking unit costs GH¢315, and the service charges are GH¢10 per month.
The service is available at MTN’s offices at Accra Mall, Osu, Graphic Road, Madina and Tema Community 6.
