End-to-End Smart Asset Tracking

Use Case

Integrated indoor and outdoor item tracking

Supply chains are moving towards individual item tracking driving a need for improved packaging to help deliver the data required in an efficient manner.

Many options exist today for both indoor and outdoor tracking of packages and containers, however they are disparate systems from both manufacturers and shipping companies and they require a large amount of work to combine datasets to achieve an integrated view with appropriate insights throughout the supply chain.

Ensuring proper thresholds are being met for temperature and condition of goods is also critical in today's marketplace. Gaining an integrated end-to-end view of the full chain of custody and condition metrics helps improve customer acceptance rates, reorder rates, and also reduces the amount of manual time spent on audit related tasks and returned shipments.
