Wed 12 October 2016, 5:30 PM – 8:00 PM NZDT
Yep, it’s been a while! But we are refreshed from the break and we are excited to announce the next PDMA-NZ networking event.
Look forward to seeing you there!
Spidertracks - Learnings from an adolescent start-up
Spidertracks, a New Zealand company, tracks aircraft in real time using ‘Spiders' to send aircraft location to a web application. As an Iridium Value Added Reseller, Spidertracks uses the world’s most comprehensive satellite network to improve the efficiency and ensure the safety of aircraft fleets, by providing the highest level of system integrity and complete global coverage. The portable, reliable and cost-effective Spider units have been sold to clients in more than 100 countries, providing accurate flight tracking globally.
Luke McCarthy, Product Manager at Spidertracks will talk about early success with their ‘Spider.’ He will also discuss the challenges of evolving and adding value to the product. Like many companies today, Spidertracks is moving away from a product focus to the software as a service model which in itself also brings challenges.
Success for some startup companies just happens and life, although frantic, seems easy. But as Spidertracks has since found out the challenge is ‘what next?’
Come along to hear about the growth of Spidertracks with a chance to network and meet other PDMA-NZ members.
