Pinpoint Communications rebrands

Certified service provider, Pinpoint Communications, has changed its name to reflect an acquisition that occurred two years ago, according to Transport Certification Australia (TCA).

Pinpoint Communications is now Netstar.

Netstar is a subsidiary of Altron – a group with primary focus on providing innovative technology solutions in various sectors, including health, finance, safety and security – and is one of the largest suppliers of vehicle tracking and stolen vehicle recovery in Southern Africa.

Netstar has more than 600,000 vehicles fitted with GPS tracking technology globally.

Pinpoint Communications has been a certified provider of telematics applications in the National Telematics
Framework since November 2010.

The change from Pinpoint Communications to Netstar reportedly highlights how global developments are demanding greater assurance in the capability of telematics services.

Netstar has confirmed to TCA that there is no change to existing Pinpoint Communications customers, and
that it will provide certified telematics applications through the National Telematics Framework, including new applications and features from the Ministerially-approved Business Case.

In other news, NTC welcomed a new CEO appointment last month.
