Managed Solution for High-Value Asset and Fleet Tracking

Sierra Wireless provides managed solutions for companies whose fleets and other assets move between multiple suppliers, customers and manufacturers. By using the Internet of Things (IoT), our managed asset tracking solutions wirelessly track containers, bins, crates and vehicles - virtually any asset, anywhere in the world.

With our asset tracking managed solutions, companies can target the exact location of assets in near real-time, enabling quick and decisive action, should a problem or change in scheduling occur. These tracking solutions ensure your high-value assets are safe, secure and where they should be, even when in route to, or in remote locations.

Building a solution to wirelessly track and monitor assets, as well as the goods they contain, can be complex and so can its ongoing maintenance. That’s why we offer Asset Tracking as fully-integrated, end-to-end managed services that are fast and easy to deploy, with minimal start-up costs, backed by decades of IoT experience from the global leader of wireless modules.

Use Cases

Asset tracking focuses on giving companies visibility into where, what, and how assets are deployed. By tracking and monitoring these assets through a web-based application, managers can make smarter, more timely decisions based on facts. This type of business intelligence drives performance and creates significant competitive advantages.

Shipping and Cargo

Companies shipping hazardous materials through remote regions need visibility on the status of volatile cargo, while valuable goods can be prone to theft. When moving cargo from one location to the next, remote tracking of every pallet and bin helps prevent accidents and loss while improving real-time forecasting.

Fleet Tracking

Mobile assets such as heavy machinery, equipment, or a fleet of vehicles (and the inventory they carry) are complex and time consuming to manage manually. Driver behaviour and vehicle performance affect not only safety but also fuel efficiency and insurance costs. Fleet tracking solutions improve ROI through reduced inventory loss, improved productivity, and enhanced safety.

Disaster Management

In an emergency, high-value assets need to be deployed quickly, and to the right place. The ability to track and locate these assets as needed is vital to providing prompt relief in the face of disasters and catastrophic acts of nature.

  • Reduce time and effort spent locating assets
  • Increase accuracy of information needed for business intelligence
  • Improve customer service
  • Increase vehicle utilization efficiency (fleets)
  • Reduce inventory and returnable asset loss (cargo, containers)
  • Simplify regulatory management and compliance (fleet safety)
Our Solution

Sierra Wireless managed solutions are fully-integrated from device to cloud to deliver accurate, timely visibility into the location of fleets and high-value assets. The specialized devices work seamlessly with applications, and all applications offer web-based interfaces that allow users to access information from PCs, tablets, or smartphones. Advanced analytics deliver reports and visualizations specifically designed for each vertical industry.

Sierra Wireless’ asset tracking solutions include hardware, network, and software applications for remote asset management, GPS tracking, mapping, display, reporting, and data forwarding. Our satellite asset tracking solutions utilize low earth orbit satellites to wirelessly track assets when cellular service is not available.

Managed solutions for asset tracking include:

Vehicle Fleet Tracking

Increased ROI, improved productivity, theft recovery and enhanced safety for employees and assets are just a few of the reasons companies deploy fleet tracking solutions. Better utilization of vehicles can reduce fleet size, saving on maintenance, operating, and replacement costs.

Emergency Response

Satellite connectivity allows emergency management and disaster relief field managers to connect, track and manage tens of thousands of assets worldwide, often under conditions where cellular service has failed. Sierra Wireless’ solution includes mapping and management software designed specifically for mission critical responders’ operational needs, serving both head-quarters and field requirements.

Transmodal Shipping

Alway remain connected to your assets, whether they are being transported in pallets, bins, crates or containers. Our tracking solution for transmodal shipping can be tailored to meet the unique business needs of various vertical industries. Real-time tracking, alerting and reporting combined with near real-time visibility makes Sierra Wireless’ asset tracking solution a comprehensive, cost-effective solution.

To implement Asset Tracking:

We provide professional services including installation and configuration, and we deploy tracking devices on your high-value assets. The devices monitor the asset’s critical metrics and send data to the application via cellular or satellite communication, depending on the devices and network implemented.

The application uses this data to manage assets and present information via a friendly web interface that highlights problems and potential bottlenecks; an integrated mapping function makes it easy to visualize materials movement.

Asset Tracking solutions tell users where their assets are, how they’re doing, and when they will arrive. Ensuring asset visibility translates into enhanced productivity, decreased costs and losses, and increased revenue.
