Losant Solutions for Asset Tracking

CONNECTED DEVICES FOR SIMPLE LOCATION MONITORING

In the world today, 38 billion devices are currently equipped with tracking capabilities. Still, the number is expected to grow exponentially thanks to the explosion of sensors, GPS units, and cellular modems readily available. Businesses and their customers are quickly seeing the value of tracking the location and health of nearly everything - from shipments to vehicles and more.

Losant Makes it Easy

Asset tracking solutions take advantage of a variety of hardware and communication methods. The actual devices used are dependent on cost, physical size, environmental conditions, geographical location, and more. Losant provides systems integrators and product manufacturers with the flexibility to choose and connect to any hardware using any communication method on any network.

To build these applications quickly, the Losant IoT platform must support essential application needs. These include understanding GPS data natively to visualize locations and geofence the information. Geofencing allows for real-time alerts when a piece of equipment or shipment travels outside a given region. Our IoT application services and additional platform capabilities provide the foundation for remote asset management, GPS tracking and mapping, reporting, and M2M data integration.

C&D Mechanical

Industrial plumbing services company C&D Mechanical implemented a tracking solution powered by off-the-shelf GPS devices and Losant to optimize utilization and reduce loss of its inventory. Due to the extremely expensive cost of their tools and equipment, loss or damage loss to even a single unit can have significant negative impact. Since the tools produce revenue only when out in use, C&D also needed to keep as many tools out in circulation for as long as possible and minimize time in transit or inventory.

Using Losant's easy-to-use data visualization tools and drag-and-drop reaction editor, C&D leadership now has real-time visibilty to the exact location of every item in their inventory. They quickly installed off-the-shelf Queclink GL505 GPS devices were installed on each tool and a custom Losant gateway implemented to track and monitor location in real-time. C&D was able to greatly reduce loss and optimize inventory utilization by using Losant to expedite development of the application and avoid significant investment in developer resources.
