Targify is part of the Halo Group, an owner-run business led by Cork native Greg McGarry. Greg became involved in vehicle tracking and telematics while working for Toyota in the Bronx, New York, USA in 1995. At that time, the only reason for using such equipment was theft prevention. Later, back in Ireland in 2005, he founded Halo Security Ltd and with his team continued to specialise in a broad range of Telematics services including anti-theft tracking for high-value Cars, Assets and Fleet Management. In 2006, Greg introduced Safety-Route, a tracking system that provides Speeding alerts to Parents via SMS Text and that was the beginning of an exciting new chapter for the business, which evolved over time to produce pioneering technology adopted by the insurance industry in Ireland.
This latest adaptation of core technology has resulted in the Targify Connected Car 360 product, which fulfils an immediate need in the young driver market in Ireland and the UK. It offers a simple, hassle free, easy to use device and service that young drivers can use to build confidence in their abilities and parents can rely on for accurate reporting on their driver behaviour. Greg and his team are passionate about the technology, its safe-guarding and life-saving capability and as industry leaders have a proven track record on delivering measurable results. Today, the company continues to innovate and brings professional-grade technology to Consumers through the Targify brand.
