Californian IoT firm Aeris is working with Roambee, an IoT supply chain and enterprise asset visibility company, to help enterprises improve their monitoring of shipments and assets through IoT-based technologies offered by both companies.
 
Roambee provides IoT-based real-time global condition monitoring and visibility services for in-transit goods and in-field assets. Roambee’s end-to-end offering can simplify global shipment visibility across the supply chain, including the entire cold chain process for enterprises.
 
The company provides patented hardware and software technology, combined with an array of senor data, analytics, predictive reporting and open APIs to increase return on investment, improve supply chain operations and reduce inventory loss.
 
Aeris offers end-to-end IoT and M2M products through its AMP mobility platform and ACP connectivity platform. Collectively, these platforms enable enterprises and original equipment manufacturers to embark on a digital transformation journey to enhance revenue, create services and form business models.
 
ACP provides Roambee with the ability to manage its global data connectivity, which in turn is being used by Roambee for its shipping, inventory, pallet, asset and fleet monitoring services. This helps Roambee advance its service delivery while improving supply chain predictability and throughput for enterprises.
 
The ACP provides a smarter cold chain because real-time monitoring devices provide managers with live data and situational alerts, thereby mitigating risks along the cold chain before they arise, while providing actionable insights for future business improvements.
