Sixt and Targa Telematics: a successful model for Stolen Vehicle Recovery with a 90% success rate in 2020.

The partnership between Sixt and Targa Telematics is now in its fourth year and continues to record excellent performance: thanks to the Stolen Vehicle Recovery (SVR) solution, in 2020 the recovery rate of stolen vehicles reached 90%.

The latest generation SVR solution developed by Targa Telematics is based on IoT, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence technologies and represents one of the modules that the company offers as part of its Asset Management services.

Minimizing damage caused by theft, safeguarding the state of vehicles in the best possible way and controlling the entire fleet with particular effectiveness, preserving its value, are the advantages deriving from the adoption of the SVR solution, which also provides customers with Operations Centers available 24/7, in order to monitor and analyze vehicle data and risk areas in real time, cooperating in close synergy with the Italian and European Police Forces for vehicle recovery.

“We are very satisfied with the partnership with Targa Telematics, whose professionalism, prompt availability and efficient service we particularly appreciate” said Carina Ratzke, Sixt Italia Fleet Manager Senior Executive. “The Stolen Vehicle Recovery solution we have adopted has immediately brought us concrete results in terms of vehicle recovery of our fleet”.

“The Operations Center provided by Targa Telematics responds promptly and professionally every time we need their intervention” added Salvatore Palumbo Sixt Italia Security Manager. “Once the problem has been reported, the operations center is able to act autonomously until the request is closed, which for us translates into a further optimization of internal processes”.

“We are proud of our consolidated partnership with Sixt, a widely renowned company with which we share values such as transparency and fairness, fundamental for the development of lasting relationships and effective strategies” said Massimiliano Balbo di Vinadio – Targa Telematics VP LA Sales. “In Sixt we immediately found great attention to the issues of fleet management and preserving the value of their vehicles, and we are very satisfied with the results obtained as a result of both our technological solutions and the high professionalism demonstrated by their internal organization”.

The partnership between Targa Telematics and Sixt is not only limited to Italy, but also includes Germany and Benelux.
