Company Snapshot

Ten years ago, GPS was used in Colombia primarily to prevent car theft, but now companies are looking for sophisticated ways to harness GPS and a wider range of telematics solutions to optimize operations. For that they can look to Widetech, led by Jaime Arbeláez, an engineer and entrepreneur who realized that the power of mobile tracking could be expanded to provide a range of logistics solutions, cutting costs and boosting sales for companies throughout Latin America. His software platform allows managers to easily monitor real-time information and make informed decisions related to vehicles, cargo, and field personnel. Widetech was built from the ground-up with scalability in mind: with cloud-based software and a “white label” distributor channel, the company has been able to expand quickly throughout the entire region.
