With the advent of Industry 4.0 and businesses needing to become “smarter,” it has become a necessity for companies to adopt advanced technologies to improve their supply chains and overall business processes. And now, because costs are no longer prohibitive and carrier networks have advanced, plus Edge-to-the-Enterprise technology is a reality, functional asset-tracking is no longer a black art, and the barrier to entry has been removed.
Current asset tracking technology and solutions are playing vital roles across many key industries and applications, such as logistics, construction, industrial, manufacturing, food and beverage and agriculture, among others.
According to a recent paper by Frost & Sullivan titled, Future of Asset-Tracking in Industries 4.0, “owing to this paradigm shift, asset-tracking solutions are becoming more and more of a necessity and are anticipated to profoundly impact the growth of various industries in the coming years.”
Some of today’s best solutions have been carefully designed as comprehensive end-to-end offerings, leveraging the latest cellular technology (Low Power LTE M1) and long battery lives of 7-10 years. As a result, these products provide immediate connectivity and monitoring to any fixed or moveable asset—right off the shelf.
