Founded in 2005 by Fabien Pierlot and Jean-Marc Van Laethem, Safety Systems Group is a European pioneer in connected services for motorists. The Group offers drivers a service for locating and recovering stolen vehicles as well as a real-time driving assistance service, including navigation. Safety Systems Group is also one of the largest European aggregators of traffic data. The group is known by the general public and companies for its brands Coyote and, Coyote Secure and Coyote Business.

In 2014, HLD enabled the founders to regain control of the company. Historically positioned in the driver assistance market with a dominant position in France, Spain, Italyand Benelux, HLD and the management team worked to diversify the range of services offered to motorists. In 2018, the company acquired Traqueur, a specialist in car and construction equipment tracking. The integration of this company into Safety Systems Group has enabled the development of two services: Coyote Secure (geolocation and post-theft recovery service) and Coyote Business (fleet management solution dedicated to businesses).

Since 2014, Safety Systems Group has continued its investment in R&D, forging strategic partnerships to enrich the user experience. HLD and the management team are aiming to accelerate the deployment of Coyote Secure in Europe and enhance the service offering with new services related to mobility.
