Company history

NPS is a social media innovative company focused to provide crime-fighting and prevention toolsets at the community level.
The company was created out of a need to protect and share vehicle lookout data between users. We created a national network consisting of platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp, WeChat, and Telegram to name a few and build apps (bots) users can interact with to get vehicle lookout reports from our NP Tracker suspect and suspicious vehicle database.
With our motto being – “We are no super hero’s – BUT they use us to be” – We provide a nationwide public accessible dataset of suspect and vehicle of interests called NP Tracker.
We saw a void in the market and offered our expertise -to create bots on social media platforms- to our clients.
Established date: 1 June 2014 the project started with the first BOT launched for NP Tracker, the company was later registered and from then operated as Number Plate Systems (Pty)Ltd but the name NP Tracker stuck.

Expansion, and growth

The original project (NP Tracker) was started to aid our local CPF but soon expanded to our Metro, Province, Nationwide and ended up with us monitoring and indexing all SADC country lookouts for vehicles of interest through our flagship NP Tracker project.
