Retirever was founded in Kenya and commenced operations in 2010, as a subsidiary of the Cartrack Holdings Limited group which listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange in 2014 (Bloomberg CTK:SJ). Since its founding, the Cartrack Group of companies, has swiftly developed into a leading provider of fleet management, stolen vehicle recovery and insurance telematics, with over 1 500 000 clients across 23 countries worldwide. This growth can be attributed to Vehicle-as-a-Service (VaaS) being an emerging market that is rapidly gaining momentum in both the taxi and the logistics industries.

Innovation lies at the heart of our business and is vital to our success. To this end, Retriever ensures that we are constantly developing new technologies that consider the learnings from all the countries in which we operate, and that we subsequently apply these learnings to our business, thereby ensuring a better product and service is offered.
