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.
Use cases and opportunities are infinite. Asset trackers can prevent theft, monitor high-priced inventory or be used to provide teams or managers with real-time information. The benefits to every business and organization are clear. But, for decision makers expecting real-time information, tracking only location with mobile apps or simple devices soon won’t be enough to compete.
