Netstar Announces Rentrak as New Ground Recovery Partner

Netstar, has appointed Rentrak, part of JSE-listed Supergroup, as its new vehicle ground recovery partner effective 1 March 2019. As a result, Netstar’s recovery footprint has significantly increased. From 20 to 33 locations country-wide, an additional two locations will be added within the next month. After a complete tender and evaluation process, the appointment was made considering many factors.

“We believe that teaming up with Rentrak, who has the largest national ground recovery network. Will enable us to take our already high recovery rates to the next level. When Netstar pioneered vehicle tracking and recovery 25 years ago in South Africa. We came to market with a commitment to assist in combating crime and getting vehicles and assets back to their rightful owners. This pledge remains at our heart and is stronger than ever,” says Pierre Bruwer, Netstar’s Group Managing Director. Today, more than 700 000 subscribers have entrusted Netstar to protect their vehicles and fleets. Netstar has contributed significantly to curbing vehicle-related crimes.

“Rentrak has over 20 years of experience. With our huge national footprint and using Netstar advanced telematics technology. We will strive to keep Netstar customers, their families and employees even safer. And their vehicles and vehicles fleets even securer”, added Dave Renton CEO of Rentrak. Netstar has a unique JammingResist feature that uses radio frequency and GSM/GPS tracking technology. Detecting and counteracting signal jamming has become more widely used by criminals.

The change in vehicle ground recovery partner will not impact how Netstar’s customers request recovery support;  this process will remain the same, with all requests being handled by their 24/7 Emergency Call Centre. The transition to Rentrak has been carefully managed to ensure a seamless process with uninterrupted service for Netstar clients. “We thank our outgoing partner for their excellent service and support in helping us to combat crime over the years we worked together”, added Bruwer.
