Pan-Africa leading telecommunication company, Econet Wireless Zimbabwe launched a vehicle tracking device, Econet Connected Car (ECC).

The CEO of Econet services Darlington Mandivenga said that after spending years connecting people, the company is now shifting attention to connecting all aspects of people’s lifestyles, starting with their cars.

“This is the first from a very wide range of products that will offer our customers what we call connected lifestyles by ensuring that everything is connected,” Mandivenga said. “This is going to be big, very big.”

Through the range of connected lifestyles products, Mandivenga added that Econet services will continue offering its customers an unparalleled, intuitive, personal and instant ability to remotely manage, protect and maintain various assets of their lives.

Econet says the ECC takes fleet management services to another level with very unique value added services such as the Connected Car Mobile Application which can be downloaded from Google Play or the Apple store.

With the app, cars can perform regular self diagnosis and reports to its owner. This is under what Econet Services calls the personal vehicle management service, which also offers services such as geo-fencing and driver habit monitoring.
