Our Story

Our story starts with a microdot …… the world's

Smallest Biggest Crime Fighter


DataDot Technology started in 2001 in the small town of George in the Western Cape. It would take two years before our first client - Avis - forged ahead and bought our product for their fleet of vehicles– a tiny microdot etched with the identity of the vehicle. Not only did Avis realise a drop in theft, but also an increase in recovery of over 50% in both cases. This early success story laid the foundation for microdotting in South Africa and we now are the proud supplier to over 65% of the new vehicle market in South Africa. From these early beginnings we have tried to stay true to our core values and deliver a product and service that aids in the fight against crime.
