Investments in telematics reaching a boiling point in SE Europe

Investments, mergers and acquisitions were central to the fourth Telematics Conference SEEurope, which was held in early October in the Romanian capital, Bucharest and was attended by more than a hundred representatives of regional and global providers of telematics solutions, equipment manufacturers, M2M service providers, logistics and transport companies, and other key stakeholders in the telematics sector.


The conference made it evident that vehicle telematics is still – or rather, is increasingly so – a hot industry, and therefore interesting for investors. “Mergers and acquisitions are like marriage: they require constant effort to make them successful in the long run,” explained Olaf Gietelink, the Director for Strategic Initiatives at TomTom Telematics, in his presentation. His words encapsulate the core of the fourth international Telematics Conference SEEurope.


In the exhibition area, visitors could see development advances made by Baltic Car Equipment, Cango, Cellocator Division Pointer Telocation, EcoFleet, Gurtam, iSYS Professional, Mobileye, Omnicomm, RCS-Navigation, Ruptela, SafeFleet, and Teltonika.


The conference was made possible by the sponsors: SafeFleet, CVS Mobile, Teltonika, Arobs, EcoFleet, Gurtam, Omnicomm, RCS Ltd., Technoton, Cango and ERM Telematics.

Investing in Telematics: who and how?

The theme of the fourth Telematics Conference SEEurope is Investing in Telematics. The conference will have a slightly different agenda than previously. After five sets of lectures, each addressing a different aspect of investing, the conference will be concluded with a short panel discussion that will also serve as an introduction to three concurrent workshops where the most pressing issues in telematics will be discussed.


As every year, the conference will start with the Telematics Markets Overview. It will focus on investments and connections, which are essential for the future development of telematics. Since there can be no development without investments, the conference will address the various ways of growth financing (entry of financial investors, takeovers, mergers etc.) and the ways in which companies can prepare for investors and for the changes that occur within companies following an investment, a merger, or a takeover. An investment is not merely a financial stake in a company, so conference participants will also discuss the importance of investing in a company’s own R&D, the employees, its infrastructure, its relationships with clients, business partners, and in mutual cooperation.


The conference agenda is available here. A list of speakers and abstracts of their lectures will be added soon.

Conference in Zagreb concluded in a very optimistic mood

The major Southeastern European companies involved in the development of telematics solutions for vehicle tracking and management met at end of September in Zagreb, at the Telematics Conference SEEurope. The core issue addressed at this year’s conference – an event organized for the third time – was the future of telematics in the region connecting 15 countries.


The conference, which was made possible by the sponsors CVS Mobile, Teltonika and SafeFleet, was accompanied by an exhibition fair, where the latest innovations were presented by Mobilisis and Primark from Croatia, Cellocator from Israel, Sygic from Slovakia, Teltonika and Ruptela from Lithuania, SeeMe from Estonia, Omnicomm from Russia, CANGO from Romania and CVS Mobile from Slovenia. Exhibition booths were visited by over 80 participants, most of whom were thrilled by the third regional telematics conference – many have already confirmed that they are coming to the next one as well, which will be in early October of 2014 in Bucharest.


Impact of startups on the telematics market

Vuk Nikolić, a speaker at the Telematics Conference SEEurope in Zagreb, is the founder and CEO of TruckTrack, the modern software solution for owners and managers of trucking business. He is a software engineer with 10 years of experience; for 15 years he has been also included in the family trucking business. In his conference speech he will focus on perspectives of telematics startups. He will derive from an idea that "software is eating the world," as it was explained by Mark Andreessen, one of the fathers of modern Web. In this way he tried to describe how contemporary software solutions are starting to deeply and unequivocally alter the ways in which we live and work. Tech startups, the drivers of these “disruptions,” were often started by college dropouts in a garage (e.g. Apple or Microsoft), and currently they bring important innovations to the telematics market. Presentation of Vuk Nikolić will present some of the most interesting web and mobile startups in the area, and give predictions about the impact of these companies on the telematics market.

PTOLEMUS reveals the future of insurance telematics

The telematics industry in Southeast Europe is focusing mainly on fleet management and transport and logistics solutions for private companies and the public sector. In the next 5 years, other segments of telematics industry will start to spread – not only for commercial vehicles but also for passenger cars in private use. For example, telematics will help insurance companies to monitor the driving behaviour and charging an insurance premium according to the actual use of vehicles. The traditional vehicle insurance models will be therefore replaced by an interactive model which will dramatically change the insurance industry.


At the Telematics Conference SEEurope perspectives of insurance telematics in the region will be revealed by Thomas Hallauer, Director of Research and Marketing at PTOLEMUS Consulting Group – the first strategy consulting firm entirely focused on telematics and location-based services. He has gained 10 years of operational marketing experience in the domain of telematics and location-based services. He is an expert at highlighting new trends, unearthing profitable niches and marketing new products and services notably in the automotive, motor insurance, LBS, navigation and positioning industries. For PTOLEMUS, Hallauer was the lead writer of the European Location Study, the most comprehensive report on the global location industry. He is now in charge of the 2013 publication of the Insurance Telematics Global Study.

11 million commercial vehicles in Southeast Europe

The Belgrade conference also focused on the local specifics of Southeast Europe and presented the first transparent study regarding commercial vehicles and tracking systems in the region, which stretches from Slovenia to Greece (Turkey is also classified among them). According to Edvard Kraševec, senior analyst at Ergo Institute, there are around 11 million commercial vehicles in the region, but only around 200 thousand are equipped with tracking systems. According to current predictions, the number of equipped vehicles will increase by 9–10 percent annually, which is slightly less than in EU countries, where the growth is expected at 20 percent annually.

The final market research on commercial vehicles and fleet management solutions in the Southeast Europe region will be available by the end of 2011. If you are interested in the research, please contact both authors: Edvard Kraševec or Alenka Bezjak.


First Telematics Conference SEEurope ended
