IoT technology provider Aeris is partnering with fleet management software and fleet telematics provider Isotrak to provide improved cellular connectivity and data analytics for Isotrak’s global customers. 

The collaboration should reduce operational costs and improves data visibility for Isotrak’s international customers.

Leveraging Aeris’ machine-optimized AerCore IoT and M2M network, AerPort connectivity platform and AerVoyance IoT and M2M analytics platform, Isotrak has added advanced capabilities to its 3iS FleetVision solution, a part of its real-time ATMSi (Active Transport Management System) fleet management system. 

According to Isotrak, it can now provide a solution using business intelligence data to provide retailers and manufacturers with a total vision of their transportation ecosystem – including their own fleets as well as those of third-party suppliers.

The collaboration between Aeris and Isotrak aims to provide customers with a reliable mobile network optimized to meet the demands that IoT / M2M solutions for fleet management creates, while providing actionable visibility and measurement into the performance of vehicles and drivers through data analytics. Isotrak’s integrated supply-chain solutions depend on accessing near real-time data with robust alerting and reporting capabilities, which Aeris is able to deliver through its carrier-agnostic network.

“Our fleet management system provides data for a total vision of a fleet manager’s transportation ecosystem. We wanted to ensure reliable connectivity services and data insights no matter where our customers are located,” said Brett Conner, president of Isotrak North America. “By leveraging Aeris’ expertise in IoT network solutions, we are able to quickly provide a robust, global solution that goes well beyond improved connectivity and competitive rate plans to offer customers real-time, useful information at their fingertips to help improve their cost structure.”

Aeris’ global support of major cellular technology standards, such as GSM, CDMA, and LTE, enables partners like Isotrak to offer customers flexibility and the potential for growth throughout the globe.

“The inherent security built into the Aeris system gives companies like Isotrak peace of mind, and the speed of onboarding, even with a private virtual network, provides a competitive advantage,” says Mohsen Mohseninia, vice president for international market development at Aeris. “We can deliver technology that can be quickly deployed and will show immediate value while also helping to reduce the time to market for new products and services.”
