Today’s asset-tracking technologies are designed to provide maximum uptime with minimum support while gathering valuable data at all times.
Leveraging M2M connectivity and the power of the Internet of Things (IoT), asset identification, and tracking solutions help ensure a company’s high-value assets are safe, secure, and where they should be — even when they aren’t under the owner’s immediate and direct control. High-value assets can include everything from critical production inventory shipped on pallets, to field-deployed machinery, to high-theft-risk items located anywhere across the globe. In broad terms, the use cases for companies deploying asset-tracking technology generally boil down to creating or maintaining revenue streams, maximizing operational efficiency, preventing theft or loss, and enhancing worker safety.
