Our History

Since the beginning of 2021, SSG has strengthened its partnership with Here Technologies and now makes available Floating Car Data (FCD) and information from its patented road safety alert platform on the marketplace of this online mapping specialist and pioneer of location-based technologies.

Our Governance

The word of Fabien Pierlot

Our Group has built its expertise on the success story ofthe French company Coyote, and on a dynamic of technological innovation and ambitious diversification, which today makes SSG one of the European leaders in connected services for safer mobility. This transformation, motivated by a desire to open to new markets, has enabled us to build on our historical expertise (real-time data processing, geolocation, Internet of Things) to go even further, thanks to the acquisition and development of new expertise and our partnership culture. We have innovated to extend the range of services offered to our customers, notably with Coyote Secure, a stolen vehicles recovery service, and Coyote Fleet, a fleet management and geolocation solution for all companies. SSG is now a multi services and multi products group, with a platform present on the French and international markets, which provides individuals and companies with cutting-edge technologies to enhance their security and that of their property. The growth of our Group is based on the same identity assets that make up our strength: technical expertise, reliability, exclusive value-added products, listening to customers and communities, and dynamic innovation. Thanks to this rich DNA, we are looking to the future! By leveraging and analyzing data, we continue to improve the customer experience and find new levers for growth in the mobility ecosystem and beyond. Our ambition tomorrow: to become one of the leaders in connected security in Europe!

About HLD

HLD is a group created by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs. Born in 2010 from the desire of Jean-Bernard Lafonta and his co-founders to support the development of European companies over the long term, several leading entrepreneurial shareholders have joined the project.

Today, HLD’s teams cover Europe through offices in Luxembourg, Paris, Milan, and Zurich. New European shareholders have joined the historical investors. Together, they put their experience and know-how at the service of the entrepreneurs they support.

In November 2019, HLD invested in Coyote System alongside its founders. HLD took 20% of the capital, alongside Fabien Pierlot and Jean-Marc Van Laethem, who recovered 80% control of the French company. Coyote System benefits from a very strong position on its two historical markets, France, and Belgium, from the loyalty of its users and from a strong reputation thanks to its capacity for innovation.

The objective shared by the founders and HLD is to continue the development of the company in France and Belgium; to reinforce the Europeanization of Coyote, especially in Italy and Spain; and finally, to support the deployment of innovative services related to mobility and the insurance ecosystem.
