Our History

Innovation on the Get-Go

At Procon Analytics, our roots in innovation run deep and reach far. We trace our story of ingenuity and trend-bucking back to 2002, the year Procon’s CEO and founder Brian Boling made the first-ever connection between GPS technology and analog phones. The need was mobile security for families. Pro (protect)…con (and connect) was the compelling idea that envisioned combining the explosive cellular technology to security services. The rest, as we say, is history. From there, Procon propelled breakthrough after breakthrough — forging industry-first partnerships with industry-leading companies; capturing emerging markets both domestic and abroad; and attracting the best and brightest talent in telematics and GPS solutions. Now we’re poised to revolutionize the automotive industry once again, with next-generation connected car technologies and the latest advances in telematics – providing the technology and the wherewithal that brings with it the promise of IoT to drive greater ROI.
