A Staffordshire company which specialises in providing security solutions has become the first in the UK to gain special accreditation for its state-of-the-art tracking device. RedWeb Technologies, based in Rugeley, has gained the automotive industry standard Thatcham Cat 5 approval for its RX10 tracking device.

Thatcham Quality Assurance (TQA) is a robust verification programme for the assessment and recognition of automotive products, equipment and services.

The Thatcham security testing regime is considered to be one of the most rigorous in the world and acts as a model for crime prevention efforts internationally.

RedWeb Technologies RX10 device is hardwired to an asset (car, plant machinery or farm vehicle) and then RedWeb’s GPS ‘Saturn’ Tracking Software allows users to keep tabs on their tracker by mobile phone or by computer.

The company’s tracking system also allows users to track individual or multiple devices.

Chris Smith, group sales director for Redweb Technologies, was delighted with his company’s exclusive accreditation achievement:

“We are delighted our RX10 tracking device has achieved the high standards required for Thatcham Cat 5 approval. This is a major milestone for RedWeb Technologies. The RX10 adds an exciting new product to be sold into the vehicle, farming, plant and UK police force market.”

The RX10 model was rigorously tested by Thatcham to predefined criteria. This testing, supported by rigorous examination of quality systems and manufacturing process controls, is intended to provide confidence in the product or service performance and an objective evaluation of its capabilities. All of this is monitored and periodically reviewed throughout the duration of the product certification to ensure that the levels of quality, service and performance are retained.

With the launch of the new RX-10, RedWeb has also signed a partnership with Securi-Guard to provide the UK and European-wide monitoring service.

Securi-Guard, which pioneered the Europe wide Securi-Track monitoring system, is the only national security inspectorate gold systems operating centre (SOC) in the UK.

Pete Stanley, head of Telematics UK and Europe for Securi-Guard, said: “Being selected to provide the service to RedWeb is an endorsement of Securi-Track’s growing reputation for vehicle and asset monitoring across the UK and Europe. This partnership represents an exciting opportunity for both companies to expand their service offerings to the market place.”
