Fleet Complete and BeWhere partner on asset tracking
August 23, 2016
Toronto-based logistics and workforce IoT software developer Fleet Complete is partnering with industrial IoT hardware and software developer BeWhere to develop a real-time asset tracking system, Fleet Beacon. The system will run on the Fleet Complete platform.
Fleet Beacon is designed to ensure that a business' or worker's high-value portable equipment is monitored. It is designed as a complement to Fleet Complete's platform that tracks fleets and large assets.
Fleet Complete plans to integrate Fleet Beacon into its IoT portfolio.
Fleet Beacon will include a weather-proof device to locate and track inventory, equipment and tools using low-energy Bluetooth for up to 250m. Connected to an Android or iOS tablet and phone, the beacon device senses temperature, light, acceleration and location in real time.
"At Fleet Complete, we have developed an all-in-one fleet telematics and IoT platform that connects businesses with their vehicles, their assets and their mobile workers," said Tony Lourakis, CEO of Fleet Complete. "Fleet Beacon fills the need for businesses with expensive portable equipment – in transit or stationary – that could be at risk for loss or theft."
This product adds to the existing Fleet Complete IoT platform by covering a broader scope of business management. Fleet Complete says the product will give transparency not only to the asset's location, but to the conditions to which it currently and historically has been subjected.
"This is an exciting collaboration," said Owen Moore, CEO of BeWhere Holdings. "BeWhere will complement the already well-positioned Fleet Complete by bringing a higher level of operational visibility. Together with Fleet Complete, we will expand the scope of unique business challenges that we can help our customers resolve."
