Autowatch Telematics offers an advanced video streaming telematics solution.

About

What is Telematics? In short, it’s the technology behind PFK’s Autowatch Telematics innovative 852 Video Telematics solution offering, which utilises telecommunication devices and advanced algorithms to take tracking and video fleet management far beyond stolen vehicle recovery. 

PFK originally spent many years designing and manufacturing tracking systems for major international companies. That wealth of experience was then channelled into building its own systems for the South African and global markets, including the innovative 852 Video Telematics system. PFK did sell telematics and tracking units to the market, but since May 2017, PFK has withdrawn from selling telematics and tracking units directly to the market.

PFK is reliant on its national and international partners and distributors to sell innovative world class telematics technology, whilst we focus wholly on design, development and manufacturing of this world class technology, through our ‘Powered by PFK’ philosophy.

PFK’s successes have always been a result of strong channels developed through deep local and international partnerships, and PFK has adopted this model for Telematics as well. This means that the telematics market locally and abroad can take full advantage of PFK’s locally based design and manufacturing expertise, to leverage world class tracking and video telematics products through our OEM approved manufacturing facility in Pietermaritzburg. PFK’s core focus on design and manufacturing will continue to empower our partners through our ‘Powered by PFK’ Accredited Partner Programme. 

Some partners take what we’ve already built and white label for resale through their own direct to market bundles or offerings. Alternatively, partners can design and build their very own product offerings through our facilities, leveraging the benefits of a local, world class, rand based manufacturing facility that has over 30 years’ experience in electronic design and manufacture.


PFK no longer manufacturers tracking devices sold under the Autowatch Tracking
and Autowatch Telematics brand names. Customers with these historic products are supported by PFK Recovery Services.
