Case Studies
The uses of Vodacom Look 4 me are as varied as it's users...

Mr. Anderson's daughter went to her best friend's birthday party on Saturday the 8th May 2004. Through the course of the evening she realised that her handbag, containing her mobile phone, had been stolen. Luckily she had already consented to her phone being located by her father and within seconds, Mr. Anderson was able to locate it.

After a strange series of events the bag was found to have been thrown onto the roof of one of her friend's houses. The police were contacted and the culprit was arrested.

Mr. Duvenhage uses Vodacom Look 4 me to track his truck drivers. One of the drivers complained that he was only able to do two out of the three trips assigned to him per day. Mr. Duvenhage decided to track this driver and noticed that he did the first trip and then went completely off the route for three hours before doing the last trip of the day.

Thanks to Vodacom Look 4 me, the mystery was uncovered - the driver was, in fact, making use of Mr. Duvenhage's truck to do furniture removals for friends and family and in the process pocketing about R500.00 per trip. Needless to say the driver is no longer in the employ of Mr. Duvenhage.

Mrs. Brown, being a concerned mother, absolutely loves our product and is one of the biggest advocates of its benefits. Her daughter is studying at WITS University and, with Vodacom Look 4 me, is locatable anytime of the day. This means that there is no need to interrupt her during class or exams and Mrs. Brown can continue her working day without worrying about her daughter's whereabouts.

Mr. Silvermann works for a security company where employees are tracked without interrupting their daily activities.
This benefits the company and its employees in many ways:

  • The employees
    The Employees feel much safer knowing that, in emergencies, their mobile phones can be used as panic buttons; and
  • The employer
    There have been occasions where employees reported that they where at their specific sites, only for Mr. Silvermann to track them and discover that this was not the case. One employee was actually found, passed-out, in a shebeen. Another (a security guard) had sold his mobile phone to a friend (forgetting that it could be tracked by Vodacom Look 4 me) and the told Mr. Silvermann that it had been stolen.
    Mr. Silvermann tracked the phone. Together with the tracking information, a confession from one of the guard's acquaintances was enough evidence for the man to be arrested for his fraudulent crime.
