New partnership will drive innovative applications and provide quick go-to-market strategy for machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions.
NewCore Wireless, the leading full-service hosted wireless technology provider for carriers, announced today it has partnered with VisTracks, Inc., a leader in providing advanced machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions, to provide SnapTraq™ asset tracking managed services to its carrier partners. This collaboration will make it quicker and easier for NewCore Wireless’ carrier partners to enter the lucrative M2M arena.
It is expected that by 2014 there will be 428 million cumulative mobile M2M connections worldwide (Infonetics Research). To address this explosive growth, SnapTraq™, based on VisTracks’ sophisticated analytics and rules-based development platform, provides an extremely easy to use asset monitoring portal that caters to businesses needing to track and receive alerts for moving assets such as trucks, vans and trailers, or more stationary assets such as farm or construction equipment. The service is hosted by VisTracks and no software is required on the customer’s computer except for a browser. SnapTraq is designed to be sold by wireless carriers to their small-medium business customers without requiring in-depth expertise nor significant capital investment.
“Partnering with VisTracks provides our carrier business partners with a one-stop-shop for M2M connectivity, as well as an expansion for increased revenue opportunities,” said Albert Kangas, COO and General Manager at NewCore Wireless.
“NewCore Wireless understands the importance of business-driven M2M applications, and we look forward to offering these solutions to our business partners. We continue to partner with the best-of-breed companies, and we are confident this partnership will help us drive M2M growth in new markets.”
“We are excited to have been chosen by NewCore Wireless and their carrier business partners to utilize our SnapTraq™ offering,” said Abraham Levine, Executive Vice President of VisTracks.
“We believe that M2M should not solely benefit bigger companies with big budgets, but extend into the rural areas, as well. SnapTraq™ provides M2M benefits to smaller businesses so that they can better compete in their marketplace at an affordable price, and its ease of use will minimize support calls and ensure a happy customer.”
