Czech company Neeco ICT has launched Trexee, an IoT asset-tracking and monitoring system to reduce costs and downtime, enable predictive maintenance, and improve asset management across all markets.
 
Industries of nearly every kind benefit from asset tracking not only because it prevents theft, loss and damage, but also because assets comprise such a large percentage of a company’s holdings. Neeco, a provider of ICT services and system integration, says it has responded to market and client needs for more advanced asset tracking by launching Trexee.
 
The IoT asset tracker and monitor provides unlimited communications around the world including unlimited geo-facing and notifications. It also has the claimed best battery lifetime available and offers vibration monitoring.
 
Thanks to 128bit encryption and the VPN tunnel of global connectivity providers, the Trexee also offers high-end security.
 
All this also allows for predictive maintenance that stops problems before they start and enables effective and strategic cost tracking to be undertaken. The Trexee can improve efficiency and reduce human intervention through automation, which makes processes more efficient and less prone to errors.
 
Companies can proactively collect and analyse data about their assets so they can use the information gained in a more efficient and time effective manner. Assets monitored by Trexee include anything that moves such as car and truck fleets, industrial machinery, airplanes and rail, while industries that could benefit from the Trexee include transportation, logistics, healthcare, agriculture, industry, retail and consumer markets.
 
“Asset tracking that delivers real-time data contributes to a healthy bottom line, and IoT devices and systems make asset tracking more accurate and reliable than ever before,” said David Pátek, founder of Neeco. “The overall IoT market is normally viewed as new devices for new applications, but in this instance we have a huge existing market making this an exciting opportunity for all.”
 
The Trexee has monitoring capabilities that measure and transmit across many different areas. These include the exact position of the asset using GPS and Glonass satellite systems, GSM localisation, speed and direction of movement, temperature, air pressure and humidity, acceleration and tilting vibration patterns, and battery and voltage status.
 
The overall offering consists of a GPS unit with a three-axis G sensor for motion and tilt detection, a responsive web portal in 16 languages, an embedded global SIM, and a mobile app for Android and iOS. There are five versions available, each with specifications for different industry requirements.
 
Complementary to the Trexee is Trexee Maps. This is a fleet-management system with integrated navigation that helps users create efficient routes for delivery or collection of goods. They can visualise and optimise routes, change routes and send instructions to the driver.
 
Privately owned Neeco was founded by Czech entrepreneur Pátek in 2009. With its network of more than 20,000 engineers around the world, Neeco can provide round-the-clock customer support. It operates in 160 countries across seven continents. Neeco clients include international telcos such as Tata Communications and Vodafone, NTT, the Hilton hotels chain and others.
