Amparos is a leading German GPS tracking solution provider combining high-quality products with an individual service – nothing is more important than for the customer to feel comfortable with its GPS trackers.

In the last 5 years the personal tracking device market has become increasingly competitive with a proliferation of low-cost devices becoming available.

Business need

The growth of Amparos’ customer base put significant pressure on the team developing and maintaining their in-house built tracking software system. This combined with the never-ending demands to support new features and new devices in a stable and reliable manner meant that considerable effort was spent on operational rather than value adding activities.

Amparos recognised that this presented an opportunity to adopt an IoT platform - to reduce development and maintenance costs, increase scalability and flexibility and maintain security and privacy levels – and that this opportunity could also aid them improve the degree of online service interactivity to that the high level which consumers now demand. The new German cloud based consumer tracking solution was launched under the Trackerando brand.
