With supply chains of all sorts under pressure around the globe, it’s never been more important to track assets for location and condition.  In a webinar hosted by the IoT M2M Council, our CEO Saml Colley joined Robin Duke-Woolley from Beecham Research, Scott Schwalbe from Airgain, and Liz Wilson from Ground Control joined together for a discussion about how IoT asset tracking solutions can help ease supply chain management.

The question central to supply chain management, “When is the asset going to arrive?” was discussed, but that wasn’t all. The panelists also talked about ways in which solutions can be implemented to help track losses and in doing so, how to mitigate them. New forms of connectivity, like low-power cellular and LEO satellites, are helping the cause by offering new price/performance scenarios.

Moving the focus away from the asset, driver safety was also looked at and taken into consideration. This comes in the form of weather and traffic alerts to advise them on the best routes. Another key and topical takeaway were that of sustainability, with asset tracking solutions able to optimize routes and therefore minimize fuel costs and consumption.

Another IoT asset tracking solution mentioned was a new breed of connectivity provider, the Enterprise Network Operator (ENO). An ENO provides businesses with new connectivity options not only to track and trace but also to monitor the condition of assets across all sectors. Furthermore, an ENO enables enterprises to own and control tailored IoT networks supporting their connected devices, giving them full visibility of the status of their assets all the way down the supply chain.

Check out the webinar to examine the possibilities of IoT asset tracking management and how to best keep your eyes on the prize.
