TrackBox free trial period to end: 20 July 2018

At the launch of the TrackBox app back in November 2016, a decision was taken to offer the full premium service for free for a limited trial period to ensure adequate testing of all features. This would allow us to tap in to the now 20 500+ App Users and make sure South Africa was getting exactly what it needed, while harnessing technology to bring it all together in a ground-breaking way.

In order for TrackBox to continue running this valuable service, now, 20 months later the time has come to implement the Premium Service and separate the full features from those members who are on the NPO free Emergency Response and Prevention Centre (ERPC) versions that will have limited use of the app. The official cut-off will be effective from 20 July 2018.

What to expect from the 21st of July 2018:  
Any user who has not upgraded to the Premium membership will automatically be switched over to the NPO Free version of TrackBox. This limits the usage ability in several ways, most prominent of which is that the emergency panic button becomes an automatic call to your selected ERPC or the SAPS dependant on the way your ERPC is set up.

If you are currently already a Premium user, this switch over will not affect you in any way. The app will register that you are a premium member and maintain you as such.

The TrackBox special offer:
To make the transition easier, TrackBox would like to encourage free users of TrackBox to switch over to premium before the cut-off day to avoid a disruption in your service. You can do this by simply selecting the ‘Upgrade’ button which will now appear in your TrackBox App Menu, entering the special offer coupon code (IPROTECH), and following the prompts.

If you do not see an Upgrade Button, kindly update your app to make sure you have the latest version installed, or contact our Admin & App Support Centre on 08616-23646 / 08616-ADMIN.

TrackBox endeavours to make this ground breaking service available to you at a minimal cost in order to keep us running and it starts from R25.00 per month (was R55.00 pm).

Additionally, we are running a promotion which encourages you to sign up to TrackBox Premium before the 20th of July 2018 and stand a chance to win an iProtech intelligent protection device to the value of R4999,00 plus a 6 months subscription to TrackBox Premium.

From all of us at TrackBox we would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your valuable support over the last several years in making this ground breaking and lifesaving application a reality. Thanks to your testing and use of the app, TrackBox has been able to be directly involved in co-ordinating the response to well over 100 000+ emergencies and has led to 1013 high level arrests.

Our ERPC Dispatchers deal with over 350 emergencies or concerns every day and this makes us a large family community action network who together is able to live by our motto AAA – Anything, Anytime, Anywhere…

The SA CAN / TrackBox Journey thus far:

The South African Community Action Network (SA CAN NPO) was launched in 2003 as ‘Generation 1’ in answering the call from Government to community action, and over the years we have pioneered the way forward for community integrated policing with local, provincial, national and international response networks. We purpose designed our technology and thinking around crime reduction strategies all while doing this with tunnel-vision heart and soul passion.

No matter how tough, we have stayed focused. While we can’t deny that it has taken blood, sweat and tears to arrive all these years later on the top of our first mountain, it has been the most amazing journey and we have found that now arriving at ‘Generation 10’, we have really only arrived at the starting line.

With ‘Generation 6’ in 2016 we saw the need to slowly work towards bringing our technology requirements in house and set up an all-round technology development company and so TrackBox Technologies was born. TrackBox Technologies is made up of a passionate team of handpicked software developers each with best in class abilities and their own natural gifts for development within the space of saving lives. This was a team that wanted to venture where no others have gone before…

The TrackBox business model is built around a passion for South Africa and it is our mission to offer an all-round emergency and wellness service to all South African’s to ensure the fastest possible response in an emergency situation, by the right people at the right time at an affordable cost. We need to reach every single human being in our country to help drive change though technology.

It was from this that the TrackBox emergency app was formed, it is a singular platform that connects it’s users to most branches of emergency services country-wide and for those that travel, internationally as well.

What is an iProtech:

An iProtech unit is the next step in non-lethal self-defence. A small lightweight device that genetically marks the perpetrator with an indistinguishable DNA marker, combined with a UV fluid and pepper spray – not only fends of the immediate danger, but alerts those who can assist.
