On March 1-2, Gurtam joined SmartWitness at the partner meeting in Chicago. Sergei Leuchanka, our Managing Director in the Americas, spoke for ‘Telematics’ at the event focused around video monitoring solutions. Gurtam, TomTom, and Mobileye got something to say facing the fabulous growth in the area. Let’s drill into it.  

This was the first experience for SmartWitness, and it was a success. The two-day event engaged industry experts, solution providers, insurance professionals and fleet managers. Although the agenda was video-centric, there was a place for telematics roundtables and best practices for project management in the area. Gurtam believes the approach will make video solutions an integral part of telematics businesses. 

As a sponsor and expert, Gurtam was there to meet the long-standing partners and catch on the potential customers. All in all, the visitors were many and diverse, each seeking a solution for a particular business domain:

  • Trucking businesses willing to minimize the number of road accident and assure the safety of cargo and drivers;
  • Integrators and software developers aimed at the video telematics niche;
  • Insurance companies facing challenges due to drivers acting irresponsibly.

Every attendee sees the compelling benefits of adding video capabilities to their telematics offering. As far as we are concerned, Sergei added some extra interest to the roundtable by highlighting Gurtam and Wialon to all those not familiar with us before.

In between catchy speeches and heated debates, we met partners representing both the American continents. Consider it a primer before Gurtam partner conference in Latin America, where we’ve done our fair share of business: 

  • Discussed the role of video telematics for HOS ELD kicking up a row since December;    
  • Promoted flespi for device management and the development of unique solutions in the IoT;
  • Elaborated on a stress-free migration of assets from other systems to Wialon.

As you see, there’s no need to wait for the partner conference in Minsk for urgent issues. Just find us at the industry events worldwide.

In the end, we see that SmartWitness deployed a platform for learning, discussion, and networking on the first try. Gurtam is proud to be a part of it and is ready support such initiatives globally. Contact us at and get assisted in the organization of your events.
