The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), the state’s leading association dedicated to the promotion and economic advancement of Georgia’s technology industry, today announced NexTraq, the value leader of GPS fleet tracking and vehicle management solutions, as one of the Top 10 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia.
The coveted Top 10 Innovative Technology Company Awards recognize Georgia-based companies for their degree of innovation, the scope and financial impact of their innovations and effect of such innovation in promoting Georgia’s technology industry throughout the U.S. and globally. Each Top 10 company will present their innovation on-stage during the 2012 Georgia Technology Summit (GTS) on March 28, 2012, at the Cobb Galleria Centre.
“NexTraq’s solutions are not only changing the telematics industry, the company is also increasing Georgia’s position as a state where technology innovation can thrive,” said Tino Mantella, president & CEO of TAG. “We applaud each of the Top 10 companies for standing out as leaders in Georgia’s technology community and look forward to showcasing them at our annual Georgia Technology Summit.”

These advances, in conjunction with our next generation tracking capabilities, provide our customers with the tools they need to manage their fleet more effectively, thus increasing their bottom line.”
“The competition for Top 10 recognition was particularly fierce this year,” said Dennis Zakas, a partner and founder of Zakas & Leonard, LLP, Chair of Group Office Buys, LLC, and chairperson of the Top 40 Selection Committee. “The Top 10 demonstrates the depth and breadth of Georgia’s technology community.
