Announces market ambition and new partnership
Everything Everywhere, the UK’s leading communications company, today launches its new M2M Management Platform as a major step towards its goal of becoming partner of choice in the machine-to-machine (M2M) space. The M2M Management Platform– a propriety M2M platform developed in partnership with Transatel – has been designed to allow business customers to securely manage their accounts and connections wherever they are.
Everything Everywhere’s ambition to lead in telemetry is also supported by the announcement of a new specialist M2M partner, Redtail Telematics, which will expand its ability to provide connectivity solutions for customers in a number of new service areas.
Marc Overton, Vice President Wholesale and M2M, Everything Everywhere said:
“The launch of the M2M Management Platform is a key step in our ambition to become the number one partner of choice for M2M services. Companies of all sizes are asking for solutions that are easy to deploy, with a self service platform that puts the control back into their hands.
We are expanding into new markets and innovative areas of service that will help companies to transform their business through mobility. As part of this we are thrilled to be working with Transatel and Redtail and are actively seeking other expert partners around the world to help us to achieve Everything Everywhere’s ambition to provide customers with instant access to data wherever they are.”
The M2M Management Platform
The Everything Everywhere M2M Management Platform – available now to new customers – provides a self-service portal for customers to quickly and securely access and manage all their account information, with complete control over their SIM accounts. The self-service web portal includes:
- Connection profiles: including identification of relevant services for the user
- Tariffs: bundles can be shared across connections and subscriptions can be added
- Call Detail Records: providing customers with records for every SMS and GPRS call within one hour
- SIMs: can be ordered directly via the M2M Management Platform
This is the first phase of the M2M Management Platform launch, and it will be followed by the release of the API to allow customers to integrate M2M operations into existing CRM systems and other business applications.
Accompanying the API release, Everything Everywhere will also encourage innovation and the incubation of new M2M solutions, by supporting the developer community. They will be provided with free SIM cards loaded with credit for testing, and given access to Everything Everywhere labs in which to work on their projects.
Everything Everywhere partnership with Redtail Telematics
Everything Everywhere has signed a Global partnership with specialist M2M technology provider Redtail Telematics and its sister organisation the Plextek Group, the world leading telematics company with over 5 million devices delivered into the automotive aftermarket. The GPS tracking in devices, which include applications such as stolen vehicle recovery, fleet management and smart insurance, will, through the partnership, all communicate via SIM cards from Everything Everywhere.
Everything Everywhere – already active in smart metering and vehicle and fleet management – is working to expand into other areas such as global logistics, connected devices for the home and workplace, wellbeing solutions and international M2M offerings. As part of the company’s ongoing partnership strategy, Everything Everywhere is seeking expert partners around the world to enable the offering of unique and innovative solutions in new markets.
