ABOUT ME

Снимка на Пламен Тодоров ptodorov
I am a professional PHP developer with more than 6 years of experience in the field of PHP development, Object-oriented development, frameworks and other web, standalone and embedded development techniques.

Movies

I’m heavily into movies and an avid follower of all the serious titles that fall into the drama, crime and thriller genres. Some of my favourites are The Godfather, The Shawshank Redemption, Schindler’s List, The Pianist, City of God, Forrest Gump, Leon, The Green Mile, Glengarry Glen Ross, Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind…

Music

I love listening to something when I rest, work or drive. I have a very colourful taste for music. Starting from the great 2Pac all the way to Coldplay, James Blunt, Lenny Kravitz, Sade… When I’m home and resting I usually listen to music on my DIY audio system which you can check out my recent projects in the blog section.

Education

I graduated from the Foreign Language School based in Pleven, Bulgaria in 2011. The languages I studied include English and Russian.

Making it worth it

In 2009 me, a friend of mine and my brother founded iTrack.bg – an online service for vehicle fleet tracking and management.

At first we started with vehicle hardware which we developed ourselves but later on we realised that we could not cope with the pressure of managing the hardware development, firmware development and assembly while we were busy developing new features of the website so we went for a better option that allowed us to focus on the most important thing – our service. We started supplying the devices from one of the world’s leading manufacturers and we focused on making iTrack.bg the most intelligent fleet tracking service in Eastern Europe. We started consulting people which were in the logistics and transportation business for years and had the keys to minimising fuel and vehicle maintenance costs and respectively optimising transport efficiency. That approach resulted in a very satisfying return of investment numbers for our clients.

A few years later, in the end of 2013, iTrack had become a partner of Neterra – the preferred Bulgarian operator for complex telecommunications services and projects in Southeast Europe with 16 years of history. Seeing more and more satisfied customers in Bulgaria led us to the decision to launch iTrackAmerica.com based in Boston, USA in the beginning of 2014.
