Platform Supports Satellite and Cellular Tracking and Monitoring
Numerex Corp, a leading single source provider of secure machine-to-machine (M2M) products and services, today unveiled its new Location-Based Services (LBS) platform, which provides enterprises with secure, scalable solutions for monitoring, tracking and recovering a wide variety of mobile assets.
This new platform addresses the needs of agriculture, transportation, construction and many other industries seeking to rapidly implement cost-effective tracking and monitoring solutions for mobile or semi-mobile assets. Numerex’s LBS platform provides asset visibility and control from one easy-to-use, multilingual, web-based portal. It supports highly configurable applications, integrating to several long-life battery- and vehicle-powered M2M devices connected through both cellular and satellite networks.
Numerex platform users benefit from key features such as:
- “Slap and Map” Simplicity: Tracking devices can be installed, activated and visible on a mapping application in minutes.
- Satellite and Cellular Options: Connectivity is tailored to meet budget and geographic needs.
- Motion Alert: User knows when the asset goes in motion, and can track its movement.
Darren Koenig, vice president of marketing and products at Numerex said:
“Knowing where mobile assets are at any point in time, and when they move unexpectedly, is a top-of-mind issue across a number of industries. The cost of setting up and deploying a solution requiring cellular or satellite coverage used to break the business model except for very high value assets. With our new LBS platform users can show a return on investment even for assets worth only a few thousand dollars.”
“Numerex is opening a new segment of the market with a horizontal platform approach, making economical solutions available for a broad array of needs and markets – from tracking a shipping container, to a construction site generator, to a snowmobile trailer, to almost anything.”
Built on Numerex FAST® – the company’s horizontal service delivery platform which includes Network as a Service (Numerex NaaS™) managing disparate wireless connectivity options; Platform as a Service (Numerex PaaS™) enabling data consolidation, manipulation, and delivery; and Software as a Service (Numerex SaaS™) providing intelligent, web-based applications – this LBS Platform enables enterprises to add new capabilities to their existing infrastructure quickly and efficiently.
As a single source provider for M2M solutions, Numerex can manage the entire process from development through deployment, allowing customers to focus on their core business. In addition to its robust platform and connectivity infrastructure, Numerex provides end-to-end support including application development, integration and implementation. Customers benefit from flow-through account management, 24/7 call-center support, and dedicated project launch resources to ensure smooth deployments and overall reliability.
