Company history

Number Plate Systems (Pty) Ltd is an innovative social media company focused on providing crime-fighting and prevention toolsets at the community level. Established on 1 June 2014, the project began with the launch of the first BOT for NP Tracker. The company was later registered and has since operated as Number Plate Systems (Pty) Ltd, although the name NP Tracker has remained synonymous with our services.

Our journey began with the primary goal of protecting and sharing vehicle lookout data among users. Over time, we expanded our services to include the development of mobile applications that facilitate vehicle identification and visitor management.

As pioneers in our field, we established the first national network that encompasses popular platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp, WeChat, Signal, and Telegram. Through these platforms, users can interact with our apps and bots to access vehicle lookout reports from our NP Tracker suspect and suspicious vehicle database. Our motto, "We are no superheroes – BUT they use us to be." drives our commitment to providing a nationwide publicly accessible dataset of suspect and vehicle of interest information.

Recognizing a market void, we now offer our expertise in creating bots and applications on social media platforms to our clients. We aim to produce high-quality services that are affordable and flexible, ensuring client satisfaction through the development of world-class applications and services.

Expansion and Growth

Since its inception, the original project NP Tracker has experienced remarkable expansion and growth. What began as an initiative to support our local CPF (Community Policing Forum) has evolved into a comprehensive system that spans beyond our city and province, eventually encompassing nationwide coverage. Today, we are proud to announce that our flagship project, NP Tracker, has expanded its reach to include monitoring and indexing vehicle lookouts of interest across all SADC (Southern African Development Community) countries.

This expansion has allowed us to establish a robust network and database of suspect vehicles, ensuring a wider scope of coverage and enhanced crime-fighting capabilities. By indexing and tracking vehicles of interest, we aim to contribute to safer communities not only within our immediate vicinity but also on a regional scale.

Our dedication to providing a comprehensive solution and staying at the forefront of technological advancements has propelled our growth. We continue to refine and expand the capabilities of NP Tracker, incorporating innovative features and leveraging the power of data analytics to enhance its effectiveness.

As we move forward, we remain committed to our mission of making South Africa and the SADC region safer places to live. Through our continued expansion and growth, we strive to provide even greater support to law enforcement agencies, community organizations, and individuals in their efforts to combat crime and ensure the well-being of our communities.

We are excited about the future possibilities and the positive impact our expanded NP Tracker project will have on crime prevention and public safety.
