From the vehicle itself, to the cargo inside, and the driver who delivers it, there are limitless applications for IoT in transportation. Some are already realized, but most have yet to be dreamed up as products of the fleet management transformation we're witnessing today.
When considering changes to the mobile environment, most enterprises only consider top-line financial costs in the decision making process; support costs are often misunderstood or overlooked. This post serves to highlight key trends in the mobile management industry while exploring cost considerations and implications of each.
You may be familiar with this situation: your company has developed a fantastic product that is going to used in a hospital, and you’re faced with the issue of getting the data back to your team safely. The IT department at the hospital will not give you access to their network, which makes sense, as many hospitals have lately faced major security breaches and forced into costly settlements. What happens when your device cannot get critical access to a wireless network? Having someone manually go to the hospital to collect the data is both costly and a logistical challenge.
Like many companies, Wireless Analytics must fight against getting pigeon-holed as only having cost saving solutions to offer. In 2003, we started as a company that was trusted to analyze carrier bills and find opportunities for cost savings. This is still an essential part of our business in 2017, but the demands of mobility are always shifting, and we’ve worked hard to cover all the bases for our clients.
