Newly launched vehicle tracking and recovery service – AX Track – achieves Thatcham accreditation. AX Track, which brings together a highly experienced support team and cutting-edge covert technology to deliver a comprehensive track, locate and recovery service, will enable fleet operators and private car owners to access significantly reduced vehicle insurance premiums.
By working closely with insurers and investing in the rigorous process of gaining Thatcham accreditation for the AX Track service, new and existing customers can utilise the cutting-edge offering which will reduce both risk and cost.
The achievement by AX Track, a new service offered by accident aftercare and vehicle technology provider, AX, comes after its involvement in a string of international vehicle recoveries in recent years, including a high-profile operation which led to the repatriation of the largest ever haul of stolen UK cars from Africa. Overall, the service has a 99.4 per cent recovery rate. Along with several specific technical and legislative requirements, Thatcham Research accreditation requires tracking companies to provide a fully staffed call centre capable of managing stolen vehicle reports 24/7, 365 days a year. This ensures customers and law enforcement agencies always receive a professional and timely response.
Director of Investigative Services at AX, Neil Thomas, said: “AX Track is the culmination of years of hard work and experience brought under one banner. Our achievements and successes speak for themselves and the combination of the skills of our people and advanced technology is now represented by this new brand.
“We are well-known for our tracking and recovery services among dealers, fleets and insurers, but our investment in Thatcham accreditation brings our covert service to the wider retail market, where we will provide vehicle owners with a well-established leading edge alternative to conventional tracking solutions.
“By definition we strive to innovate and we felt the time was right for us to prove how good our service is; we wanted it independently verified by the industry experts and we passed with flying colours, receiving the Category S7 accreditation – which many consider to be the most effective approach when dealing with professional vehicle thieves.. Crucially, this allows us to build on our existing partnerships with insurance companies and enables drivers to benefit from lower premiums.”
