A short while ago, we published the Wialon TOP 50 Global rating which honors the companies with the biggest number of connected units over a year. In 2019, we created another rating, this time for hardware manufacturers. The first award ceremony of GPS Hardware Manufacturers TOP 10 took place during the Gala Party after the working part of the anniversary TelematiX conference was finished.
As the quality equipment is one of the major growth factors for a service provider, we decided it would make sense to praise the hardware manufacturers whose devices help Gurtam partners expand and increase the market share.
Sometimes they say “More doesn’t always mean better” and it is indeed so, but we chose the number of connected devices (within the last 12 months) as a criterion for our rating, and here is why. The more devices of a certain manufacturer are used in various projects in different spheres, the more trust the integrator will have for the brand, the more information on its application in real-life projects the integrator can get.
The service providers can not control directly the quality of devices they acquire, that’s why it is vitally important for them to be sure the equipment works correctly. If something goes wrong, they spend a great amount of time resolving issues with trackers instead of developing their business.
For this reason, we honor the manufacturers who help Gurtam partners and the community develop faster!

We are happy for the companies that made it to the TOP 10 and we appreciate the efforts the manufacturers put into developing reliable devices and using cutting-edge technologies. We understand that it’s not an easy task to compete with these guys but nevertheless, it is always worth working on.
Meanwhile, here is what the leaders of the rating say about being at the top. Turning it over to Aleksandr Krupovič, Chief of Operational Marketing, Teltonika:
“It’s a big honor and responsibility for us to be the acknowledged manufacturer №1 for Wialon. This fact also shows we are moving in the right direction. This year, we are determined to work even harder. The partners added the second hundred thousand of our devices in two years. Seven months hardly passed since then, and there are another 40 thousand devices in the system. So, the 300,000 milestone is on its way.
We want to thank Gurtam and its wonderful team once again for this fantastic conference. We also thank our current and future partners for the trust they put in us as this is our common victory! We are happy to work with you and are optimistic about the future that will surely bring many innovative telematics solutions!”
On the other hand, Gurtam is not going to stop and leave the things where they are now with the hardware manufacturers. We are aiming high and plan on building a relationship with them even further as they are a significant part of our partner community. In doing so, we now have specialists catering for the manufacturers’ needs in all business development departments.
Strategic HW Relationships Manager, Gurtam
“We appreciate the serious work of hardware manufacturers who drive the development of the entire industry and want to be closer to them. This new rating is a great way to celebrate the efforts of those companies whose devices are most frequently used within the Gurtam partner community. Our congratulations to the winners!”
