Our Company

Our Company

Viasat was born as a specialized operator in the provision of Satellite Telematics services in the automotive sector. In the first half of 2023, Targa Telematics finalized the acquisition of Viasat Group, an Italian company regarded as a center of excellence in the field of technology applied to the automotive industry, which has established a reputation over the years as one of Europe’s leading providers of satellite and IoT info-telematics services and solutions for the safety and security of people, vehicles and goods.

Targa Telematics is a leading global player in the field of IoT and in the development of digital solutions and platforms for connected mobility.

For more than twenty years, this tech company has brought a range of innovative telematics, smart mobility and IoT platform solutions for short- and long-term rental companies, finance companies and large fleets to the market.

The international strategy

Leveraging proprietary solutions and platforms – developed in its R&D hub – the company’s offerings range from insurance telematics to asset and fleet management, from remote diagnostics and telemetry of vehicles, professional and construction vehicles, to airport vehicle management. 

Already operating abroad with offices in the UK, Spain, France, and Portugal, through the incorporation of Viasat, Targa Telematics has strengthened its leadership in the Italian market and accelerated its

expansion, with a strong direct presence in eight key European countries (Italy, Portugal, Spain, France, the UK, Belgium, Poland, and Romania), as well as a subsidiary in Chile.

In its projects at international level, the company brings to the market a range of innovative technologies and leverages strong dedicated territorial support in the various countries to serve its customers better, which are mostly multinational companies active in mobility and in other sectors.

Our Operations Centres

We support our customers with a European Network of Group-owned Operations Centres and Customer Service Centres, 2 in Italy with 120 operators (Venaria Reale and Rome), 1 in Romania (Bucharest), 1 in Poland (Warsaw), 1 in Spain (Madrid) and 1 in Belgium (Brussels), 1 in France (Montauban), 1 in the UK (London) and 1 in Portugal (Lisbon) operating 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Furthermore, we have a capillary network of Service Centres, a fleet of mobile garages and tow trucks and an authorised circuit of garages and body shops.

Big Data Management

Thanks to 30 years of expertise in the LBS (Location Based Services) market, with more than 2 million devices manufactured for the Telematics Service Provider worldwide market, we have counted more than 12 billion kilometres travelled per year (more than 80 times the distance between Earth and Sun).

This amount of information, if properly managed and processed, also thanks to the tools provided by Viasat, makes it possible to generate business opportunities for companies that decide to use telematics to optimise and make more efficient the management of their fleets.

Looking to a sustainable future with technology that can translate data into knowledge and help our customers achieve even more challenging goals.
