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.
ff-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.
