Business Challenge

Founded in 2002, BIGmate initially provided data logging solutions for field service applications. At that time, real-time data access was a thing of the future. As BIGmate evolved with technology, so did the company’s asset tracking solutions, which help to identify and correct driver behavior (e.g., seat belt usage, hand brake usage, average vehicle speed) and monitor engine health in order to improve personnel safety and preserve the life of the vehicle. With the desire to expand connectivity options to cellular to enable real-time data transfer in their solutions, BIGmate knew they needed a platform that would allow a high level of customization to cover their customers in a wide range of industries and sizes.

BIGmate selected the Sierra Wireless AirLink® FXT009 programmable modem as one of its platforms, which provided the open development platform they needed to continue advancing their GPS solutions. BIGmate has continued to migrate their applications to next generation FX Series modems, currently focusing on the latest model FX100.
