About us

Hi there,

and thank you for taking the time to find out about the team behind Pro-tekt, and how this venture came about.

Our company was founded in January 2015 in the town of Ballarat Victoria, after a chance meeting between myself (Matt Penhall) and Robert Leyton, when a mutual friend suggested we should meet to discuss an idea I had been researching. The gap within the vehicle tracking space quickly turned into a business venture!

The available tracking systems were either very expensive, out of reach for the average user, or  come with a complicated set of SMS commands that gave the user only basic GPS coordinates in which to try and find their asset. (Many of these also still run on the 2G network, which has been switched off here in Australia, but they are sold as 3G!)

After many years working as an Auto-Electrician on remote mine sites across the country, I wanted an efficient an d instantaneous  way to know if my vehicle or my property had been compromised without finding out two weeks later when it would be too late. This happened to a colleague of mine while we were on site, and the poor bloke was an emotional mess for the rest of our stint on site. You can imagine being so far from home, stress, multiple telephone calls. All we could do as colleagues was offer words of support.

This event was the final trigger for me to act on setting about investigating this project

Robert obtained his Ph.D.  Investigating and performing data analytics on cybercrime data, developing new algorithms for text mining and authorship analysis. Robert also supervises several Ph.D. and Masters students at Federation University Australia. After our initial discussion, he too was interested to get involved with the project.

We set about designing Pro-tekt. A system that allows anyone to access a high end, reliable and easy to use App based vehicle tracking platform.  I am so proud to tell you that with high functionality, 24/7 Live Tracking capability, and a few other clever functions for everyday use, the only question you will need to ask yourself is how many will I need?

Robert started coding the platform from a ground up build, and I set about designing a kit that would be simple to install with innovative components that have highly intelligent functionality.

The end product speaks for itself, and is now available to you at the click of a button. 

We have been fortunate enough to have many fantastic and talented people that have shared our vision and were only too happy to get involved and help us out in so many ways along this journey. It has certainly been a hectic but exciting adventure so far, to say the least. We are confident that you will love using our product as much as we do.

Thanks for your time,

Team Pro-tekt
